And now I’m reading that Gianna, the daughter who dreamed of playing for UConn, died with her father.

A New York Post reporter has been suspended, for a tweet of an old news article concerning Kobe Bryant rape case. Insensitive, or a timely reminder?

Bad timing. The only people this will hurt are his surviving family. They don't need to be reminded of this right now.

Do you think they'd forgotten? Personally I don't see a problem with it. It happened, it's part of his life so it's part of his obituary. The case was thrown out because the woman wouldn't testify. He wasn't found to be innocent. Can't whitewash his history just because he's died.

No I don't think it's something they would forget. I just think it was bad timing. Coping with the death of your husband and child is going to be hard enough without your husband's past history being revisited by media hounds.

As for being part of his obituary?? There would be some very long obituaries for most everyone if every part of their history was revisited!
