Vanessa shared the screenshot alongside a caption where she tagged Meek Mill while telling him she disapproved of him using her husband's tragic death in a song. The 38-year-old wrote:

"Dear @meekmill, I find this line to be extremely insensitive and disrespectful...but I believe you can do better than this."

Vanessa continued by telling the rapper that if he was a fan of Kobe's, there are better ways for him to show it. She concluded by describing the lyrics as lacking respect and tact.

Following Vanessa's post, WNBA star Candace Parker, a longtime friend to the Bryants, took to her Instagram story to share a supportive message to the 38-year-old.

[D]espite the grief, Vanessa has exercised an impressive level of strength in the past year.

Shortly after Vanessa aired her disapproval, Meek Mill took to Twitter, revealing that he had privately apologized to her for his choice of words in the song.

On January 26, 2020, the world came to a stop when it was announced that Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna had died alongside seven others in a helicopter crash at Calabasas, California.

While the world lost a basketball legend, Vanessa lost her husband and daughter. Undoubtedly, the tragic loss came with an unexplainable amount of pain for the mom of four.

However, despite the grief, Vanessa has exercised an impressive level of strength in the past year. It is safe to say the 38-year-old is well on her way to healing.
