Despite nearly a full week of chaos, looting and vandalism in L.A. … one thing has remained untouched in the city — street art dedicated to remembering Kobe Bryant.
The city Mamba played in for 20 years has been turned upside down in the wake of George Floyd’s death … with protests turning aggressive and violent in several neighborhoods.
In fact, areas just miles from Staples Center have been devastated … with shops and stores being smashed, burned and sprayed with graffiti.
But as looters and agitators tore through parts of town … they carefully passed over tagging and destroying Kobe murals — and the former NBA star’s wife sure appreciated the gesture.
Vanessa Bryant shared pictures of untouched Kobe and Gianna murals on her social media page Monday night … most with heart emojis and captions expressing gratitude.
Of course, all the art was put up in the days after Kobe and Gianna’s tragic deaths in late January … and it’s successfully stayed in place since.
Social media users have issued threats of violence for any kind of Kobe art tampering in the future … with one Twitter user even writing, “tagging over a Kobe mural is asking to catch a 6pc w a side.”
