WaPo reporter reinstated after Kobe Bryant tweet row

WaPo reporter reinstated after Kobe Bryant tweet row

The Washington Post has reinstated a reporter who was suspended after a tweet about sexual allegations against Kobe Bryant soon after his death. Felicia Sonmez had posted a link to a 2016 article about the allegations. Managing editor Tracy Grant called the posts ’ill-timed’, but said they did not break the paper’s policies. More than 300 WaPo employees signed a letter in support of Sonmez.

Something tells me that if her name had been "Felix Stronberg", the outcome would be different.

Sorry for the loss of life but Kobe had credible rape case against him.

It was a classless thing to do right after his death but they shouldn't have been suspended. Glad they are back.
