Tributes continue to pour in for Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna as murals all across America and the world are being created in their memory.
One that has been highly disapproved of though is one of Kobe in Indianapolis, Indiana. According to Black Indy Live, the painting has been highly criticized due to inaccuracies in his facial and body features.
One Facebook user went as far as saying that the mural “killed Kobe again.” Another user on Twitter claimed that his brothers were the ones who made it but someone painted over Kobe’s face a few days later. Another shot that was taken against the mural on Twitter was that Kobe’s armpit was more focused on than actually making his face accurate.
Some murals may not be the most perfect ones but now should be a time to honor people’s efforts who are doing their best to honor the legend who made impacts on and off the court. February 24 will be another emotional day in Los Angeles at but nonetheless, there should be plenty of beautiful tributes at STAPLES Center in Kobe and Gianna’s honor.
Check out the mural in Indy below along with some of the harsh criticism its been receiving along with social media users coming to the mural’s defense.
