NBA player Kwame Brown is mad about Zaya Wade’s recent dress tribute to Kobe Bryant.
Zaya wore the yellow Kobe Jersey dress and captioned the post: “always remembering and honoring Kobe and Gianna. ♡”
Most people loved the tribute but Brown did not. He had issued with Zade, who is transgender and says the dress was disrespectful to Kobe’s legacy.
“You are letting your woman control your house,” Brown said.
“I’m not saying there’s anything against homosexuals, but [Kobe] is a heterosexual man. Why is he being honored by making his jersey into a dress? Wear his goddamn jersey for the day to honor him without the dress part. Let’s please not show our Black brother in this light. This is no offense to nobody else. This man was a heterosexual man with a wife and a family. There’s no reason for this to be tied to Kobe Bryant. None whatsoever.”
Was the dress disrespectful?
