Kobe Bryant's tragic death in a helicopter crash was predicted more than three years ago - by a ComedyCentral animated sitcom called Legends of Chamberlain Heights.
The show - which aired in 2016 - depicted Kobe going down in a helicopter crash.
A distressed Kobe is seen crawling out of the helicopter, and the character says to Kobe - "pass us the trophies, and we'll help you"
Kobe refuses, and the helicopter explodes.
Here is the cartoon, which shows Kobe's death:
The early reports of the crash are surprisingly similar. According to multiple reports, the helicopter crash was not likely the cause of death of the occupants - but rather the fire and explosion that occurred afterward.
So as you can imagine - Twitter is now filled with thousands of Illuminati conspiracy theories surrounding Kobe's death.
Here are just a few:
The N.B.A. sent a confirmation of Bryant’s and Gianna’s deaths to all teams and league employees Sunday afternoon, according to two people familiar with the document.
The other victims of the crash included John Altobelli, a longtime baseball coach at Orange Coast College, a junior college in Costa Mesa. Calif., as well as Altobelli’s wife, Keri, and daughter Alyssa, university officials said.
The local authorities did not immediately release the identities of the people who were aboard the helicopter, including Bryant, and the chief medical examiner for Los Angeles County, Dr. Jonathan R. Lucas, said it could take several days to recover the bodies from the crash site.
“We will be doing our work thoroughly, quickly and with the utmost compassion,” Lucas said. “We’re doing everything we can to confirm identifications and give closure to the families involved.”
