Only a week after false reports of Vanessa Bryant’s death began circulating on social media more fakes news on the Bryant family is being spread. It seems that online trolls are attempting to capitalize on the tragedy of Kobe and Gianna Bryant’s death.
The most recent of false claims is that of Natalia Bryant’s death. A “BBC” news report alleges that Kobe’s daughter committed suicide due to bullying. The video report was published on untrustworthy websites such as w0rldnews.g0ldenbuzzers.com and t0pstories.caldomns.com.
Fact-checking site Snopes calls it a ‘carbon copy’ of the Vanessa Bryant suicide hoax. They state: “No genuine news outlets have reported on Natalia Bryant’s alleged death. Furthermore, Natalia’s mother, Vanessa, has made no such announcements on her social media pages.”
“Natalia Bryant did not die by suicide in February 2020. This is just another death hoax aimed at exploiting a tragedy.”
