A Twitter user, known as King Juwan has got the Twitter atmosphere charged up, after he tweeted his dismay at US blogs TMZ and ShadeRoom for posting about the news of Kobe Bryant’s death before his family even found out.
According to the Twitter user, the family should have been contacted first before the news was released to the public and some other Twitter users believe someone broke the ethical code of conduct while TMZ did their job by reporting and shouldn’t be blamed.
Bryant, a Basketball legend who played all his career for LA Lakers, died on Sunday after the helicopter he was traveling in, crashed in Calabasas, California.
Kobe, 41, was with his daughter Gianna, 13, and 7 others and they all died.
There are unconfirmed reports that Kobe’s oldest daughter, Natalia, had an asthmatic attack and had to be rushed to the hospital after hearing of her father and sister’s death, and the Twitter user King Juwan believes that it is ‘such negativity’ that the websites feed on hence they should be boycotted.
