Vanessa Bryant has called out Meek Mill for his new song that references Kobe Bryant and the helicopter crash that killed him, their daughter Gianna, and several others. Taking to her Instagram stories on Monday, Vanessa blasted the rapper for his "extremely insensitive and disrespectful" lyrics.

"I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this," she wrote in her post. "If you are a fan, fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband. This lacks respect and tact."

The song in question, reportedly titled "Don't Worry (RIP Kobe)," has not yet been released but last week the lyrics were leaked on social media.

"This b---- I’m f---in’ always tell me that she love but she ain’t ever showed me," the song goes, according to Yahoo! Sports. "Yeah, and if I ever lack, I’m goin’ out with my chopper, it be another Kobe," it continues.

Rapper Lil Baby features in the song and also references Kobe and Gianna.

"... have a son, so I can name him Kobe/Daughter Gigi," he says.

Meek Mill, who came under fire shortly after the lyrics to his song were leaked, was quick to defend himself on social media.

"somebody promo a narrative and y’all follow it.... y’all internet antics cannot stop me ....s---t like zombie land or something! Lol" he tweeted.

The backlash was what drew Vanessa's attention to the song's lyrics. Meek Mill later explained that he had apologized to her.

"I apologized to her in private earlier today not to the public..." he tweeted. "Nothing I say on my page directed to a internet viral moment or the family of a grieving woman! If you care about someone grieving change the subject!"
