She wasn't at the funeral making a shitty eulogy. You are, whether consciously or not, normalizing behavior that in absolutely no way should be normalized--it's already happening enough in our society.
I don't think anyone is normalizing his behavior from almost 20 years ago. People were mad because his body wasn't even cold yet and she's bringing up the case from almost two decades ago, where their were significant questions on both sides, and it was never proven to be sexual assault or rape. The case itself was very foggy if I remember right. Kobe admitted to having rough sex and was very honest and clear about what went on. And if I remember right the woman had a rape examination done and the doctor performing it said they found DNA from multiple sexual partners, and found pubic hair belonging to a caucasian Male on her as well. The injuries found were consistent with a woman that could have been raped, or simply just had multiple sexual encounters in a short period of time. It made the whole case hazy. I still don't know how I feel about it. I don't think this is a case where it was a woman looking for a pay day. IMO it was a consensual act that got out of hand and Kobe went too far while he was "in the zone", and he did things that the female didn't want done.
In any case, it isn't something that should be publically posted by a reporter HOURS after the person dies tragically with his 13 year old daughter and 7 other innocent people. It's a terrible look. At least wait until the body is cold, and people have had time to process the shock of a legend of his sport passing at only 41 in a tragic accident.
