Hollywood is a den of complete hypocrites. They parade around with their #MeToo pins and brag about how much they care about victims of sexual abuse. It’s all for show. At the Oscars, Kobe Bryant was given an award. And despite the fact that he has been accused of rape, these clowns applauded for him.
CBS News reports:
Kobe Bryant rape accusation resurfaces after “Dear Basketball” Oscar win
Former NBA star Kobe Bryant’s film “Dear Basketball” won the Academy Award for “best animated short” Sunday, but the win brought sharp criticism to the academy, coming as it did amid the rise of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movement. Bryant was arrested in 2003 after a 19-year-old accused him of rape, an encounter he described as consensual. The case was dropped the following year after the woman said she was unwilling to testify in court.
Bryant won his Oscar at the first attempt. Twitter users were swift, immediately criticizing the decision to reward the former Lakers star as being out of touch.
“People say that rape allegations will ruin a man’s life but here is Kobe winning an Oscar in front of my own eyes,” podcaster Aminatou Sow wrote.
