Vanessa Bryant has finally settled with Los Angeles County following the tragic death of her husband and NBA legend Kobe Bryant, her young daughter Gianna and several others. NBA fans will undoubtedly be able to remember that it is over three years since the unfortunate helicopter crash.
One can only imagine her pain and anger after finding out how the media and authorities dealt with this tragedy. After all, their mishandling of this situation is the reason she decided to sue them in the first place. With that being said, fans might want to know more about her case and settlement as well as how others across the world are reacting to this development.
Fans demand to see the Kobe Bryant crash site photos after Vanessa Bryant settled for $28.85 million
Vanessa initially filed the suit after she found out that the first responders to the crash decided to take photos of what was likely to be the mutilated corpses after the accident. This would certainly trouble her considering that if the pictures were put on the internet, she and the rest of her family would inevitably see them one day.

Hence she sued Los Angeles County over emotional distress and bad handling of the situation. She clearly felt that someone should be held accountable and potentially punished for the photos being taken without the consent of the family members.
While this is a valid point, considering that Bryant was extremely popular and known across the world, it is no real surprise that someone felt the need to show the world what actually happened to him. However, it is unclear whether these photos ever reached the light of day and made it onto the internet.
Even if they were, we presume that the photos were quickly removed or made inaccessible to the public. Now that Vanessa got paid for this whole ordeal, fans are demanding that the photos should be made available to the public.
“Anyone have a link to the photos” and “Ok now drop the photos” are some of the reactions by fans after finding out she made almost $30 million in her pursuit of “justice.”

Some could argue that these reactions are simply cruel and insensitive. Be that as it may, if Vanessa managed to extract such a large amount of money under the claim that the photos were released, perhaps they finally should be released, at least after she got paid heftily for them being taken in the first place.
