Last week I told you guys how a snippet of a song by Meek Mill went viral for the lyricYeah, and if I ever lack I’m goin’ out with my choppa / It be another Kobe.” And until now we didn’t know if Kobe’s wife Vanessa would address it. Well she did. On her IG story, Vanessa wrote:”I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this.  If you are a fan, fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect.”  Since Vanessa’s post, Meek responded with a series of tweets that many were calling insensitive. One being “I say random s**t all day on social … it becomes a trend to hate on me every once in a while but I feed off that s**t ima beast literally.” But just two hours ago, Meek tweeted that he actually reached out to Vanessa earlier today to apologize. “I apologized to her in private earlier  today not to the public…Nothing I say on my page directed to a internet viral moment or the family of a grieving woman! If you care about someone grieving change the subject!”
