Comic Paying The Price For Mocking Kobe’s Death While Vanessa Honors Her Husband and Daughter

Ari Shaffir’s Not Laughing Now  Shaffir is a little known comic who may have to live with that title for a while.  Shaffir has been under fire since making a pretty insensitive joke about Kobe Bryant mere days after his death.  Shaffir posted a video after Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter and seven others died in a tragic helicopter crash saying, “Kobe Bryant died 23 years too late…He got away with rape because all the Hollywood liberals who attack comedy enjoy rooting for the Lakers more than they dislike rape. Big ups to the hero who forgot to gas up his chopper. I hate the Lakers. What a great day!

Blowback for the comic’s crass words has been harsh, swift and constant. According to Pop Culture.com, “Shaffir’s Twitter account is now locked“.  Some of Shaffir’s play dates are also taking a hit, Pop Culture says the comedian was supposed to tape “a standup special titled Ari Shaffir: Jew. The venue released a statement indicating that the production company, Rotten Science, withdrew from the project in the wake of the fallout.”

The article even says Shaffir even had to change his name to get on stage at another scheduled event.

Shaffir did go on Instagram to apologize for his crass comments two days after Kobe’s death saying, “Every time a celebrity dies, I post some vile s— about them,” Shaffir wrote. “I’ve been doing it for years. I like destroying gods.” That’s sounds less like an apology and more like an excuse, but either way, the offering was too little too late.

This time, Shaffir is the one being destroyed.

Bryant and daughter Gianna were laid to rest in a private ceremony last week at a cemetery near the Pacific Ocean.

Kobe’s widow Vanessa Bryant has renamed her husband’s Mamba Sports Foundation in honor of both Kobe and their daughter who died alongside him in the crash.   Vanessa said, “Because there is no #24 without #2 we have updated the Mamba Sports Foundation… We hope to empower young athletes in a world they left us all to help shape.”  The foundation will now be known as the Mamba & Mambacita Sports Foundation.

    The following information has flown over black men’s heads. Kobe Bryant’s net worth was over $600 million dollars. Most of his money is going to his Mexican wife. For over forty years rich black men have shunned and disrespected black women and catered to Mexican women. Here is the list of latin women who became rich and famous because of self hating black men:

    1. Jennifer Lopez: Keenan Ivory Wayans and Puff Daddy made her rich and famous
    2. Rosie Perez: Became famous because of Spike Lee
    3. Apollonia Kotero: Became famous because of Prince
    4. Darlene Ortiz: Became famous because Ice-T married her
    5. Sofia Vergara: Became famous for appearing in the movie Soul Plane
    6. Zoe Saldana: Became Rich and famous for appearing in the movie Drumline
    7. Eva Mendes: Rich and famous for appearing in the Denzel Movie Training Day

    When these latina women become rich and famous, they distance themselves from the black community. The money they make goes to the Mexican community, not the black community. In the case of Jennifer Lopez, she became rich and famous and called us the n word.

    It’s unfortunate that Vanessa Bryant lost Kobe and her daughter. She will be in intense pain for the rest of her of life. However the majority of Kobe’s $600 million dollars will go to her instead of a black woman.

      Black women are now waking up to this reality and are moving on and not looking back. The black man fought during the civil rights movement so they can have access to white and other non-black women. They want it so so be it.

    Calling someone a rapist who was not convicted of rape is called slander. Vanessa Bryant should sue anybody who calls her late husband a rapist. She should sue Gayle King, CBS, Abigail Disney and Ari Shaffir.
