Evan Rachel Wood was slammed on social media Shortly after she posted the tweet. Fans pointed out that the athlete was never prosecuted in connection with the sexual assault accusations. They even called Woods insensitive.

Evan was referring to the 2003 case where Bryant was charged with felony sexual assault after a 19-year-old accused him of raping her in a Colorado hotel room. Bryant initially denied having any sexual contact with the woman, but after physical evidence was found, he admitted to having had sex with her but claimed it was consensual. The case was dismissed when the girl refused to testify in the court. But a civil case was settled out of court for an undisclosed amount. Bryant had later issued a public apology to the woman.
