The Staples Centre, known as Kobe's second home, was lit up in his respect and many artists paid tribute to the LA Lakers player and Gianna (who everyone lovingly called Gigi). Gigi was an aspiring basketball player, trained by her father. According to a few media reports, Kobe and Gianna were on their way to attend a match the latter was playing. #KobeBryant and #24ever were trending on Twitter with many sharing pictures and videos of the late legend. However, one tweet received particular traction. A Twitter handle by the name @dotNoso in 2012 predicted that Kobe Bryant will be killed in a helicopter crash.

The almost eight-year-old tweet resurfaced on social media. Many took to slam the person behind the tweet. He apologised later. However, many took a jibe at the Twitter account for making more predictions while others slammed them for being insensitive towards the deceased.
