Daily Mail: A Washington Post journalist has been suspended by the newspaper after she tweeted a link on Sunday to a years-old story about the Kobe Bryant rape case just hours after the basketball legend and his daughter were killed in a helicopter crash.
Felicia Sonmez, who covers national politics for the Post, took to Twitter shortly after the world learned of Bryant’s death along with eight others aboard his private helicopter which crashed outside of Los Angeles.
She posted a link to an April 2016 story from the news site The Daily Beast which carried the headline: ‘Kobe Bryant’s Disturbing Rape Case: The DNA Evidence, the Accuser’s Story, and the Half-Confession.’
LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL. Good. There is a time and place for everything. Hours after a man and his 13 year old daughter just lost their lives isn’t it for this type of shit. Saw this tweet by Felicia yesterday and it made me irrationally angry or rationally, who knows. And just like the coward she is, she went back and deleted all of her Kobe tweets. Well Felicia, as the old saying goes, the internet is forever. You would think a Harvard grad class of 2005 would know better:
Twitter should pin these to her account until the end of time. You don’t get to just throw a bunch of shitty opinions out there on twitter and think they are just going to go away with a delete button. This is your scarlet letter Felicia, wear it proudly. You tried to take advantage of a tragedy to push your own messed up agenda and it backfired.
