Meek Mill is facing backlash after an unreleased song of his that mentions the death of Kobe Bryant surfaced. “And if I ever lack, I’m goin’ out with my chopper, it be another Kobe,” the artist raps in the song, which is reportedly titled, “Don’t Worry.”

On Monday, Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, called out the Philly rapper for his “insensitive and disrespectful” lyrics on Instagram. “Dear @meekmill, I find this line to be extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Period,” wrote Vanessa. “I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this. If you are a fan, fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect and tact.”

After everyone went to Meek telling him to apologize he released a statement saying, “I apologized to her in private earlier today not to the public,” he tweeted. “Nothing I say on my page [was] directed to a internet viral moment or the family of a grieving woman! If you care about someone grieving change the subject.”
