AceShowbiz -Rapper Meek Mill has apologised to Kobe Bryant‘s wife for referencing the sports legend’s helicopter death in his new song.

Vanessa Bryant attacked Meek for his verse about her late husband, calling it “extremely insensitive and disrespectfull,” and now he has revealed he has apologised “in private.”

“Nothing I say on my page directed to a internet viral moment or the family of a grieving woman!” he wrote on Twitter on Tuesday (23Feb21). “If you care about someone grieving change the subject!”

Although he didn’t mention Kobe’s name, he seemingly referred to the backlash as he continued, “Somebody promo a narrative and y’all follow it…. y’all internet antics cannot stop me ….s**t like zombie land or something! Lol.”

“They paying to influence y’all now … its almost like mind control ‘wake up,’ ” he added.

Meanwhile, he insisted he’s a fan of Kobe and Gianna by posting on Instagram a picture of a hat with Kobe’s and Gianna’s names on it.
