Kodak Black has become the latest rapper to face backlash for referencing Kobe Bryant’s tragic helicopter crash.

Earlier this year Meek Mill drew the ire of the Internet when an unreleased version of his “Don’t Worry” song featured the lyric “If I ever lack, I’m goin’ out with my chopper, it be another Kobe.”

On Monday, Kodak Black, who turned 24 last week, posted a photo of himself dressed in a Kobe Bryant Lakers jersey standing next to a helicopter painted in the Lakers purple and gold colors.

NBA fans on social media immediately blasted Kodak for being insensitive for his Kobe “tribute.”
