When Kobe Bryant’s divorce first hit the news, Sanaa Lathan made a very ignorant comment after some were saying that she was the cause for the breakup (Sanaa Lathan Says She Isn’t Smashing Kobe Bryant..Implies He Doesn’t Like Black Women).
Today, she apologized for Tweets, while trying to clarify why she was upset.
I probably shouldn’t have said that because I don’t discriminate when it comes to dating. I have dated all races and I believe you should be free to do whatever you want. But I was so annoyed because I was having such a great time at the concert and Kobe happen to be standing next to me, and then all of a sudden I was tied to his break-up.
That’s absurd, and I tweeted that in the moment, and I regret it. But to each its own. It’s just funny that if it’s written people believe it, and even though I have said I have nothing to do with him, people are still saying when the baby is due?
Someone still seems to be trying too hard to convince us she wasn’t tying to get with the Kobe System, but at least she recognized what a dumb thing she said.
