Kailyn Lowry, one of the stars of MTV’s hit show Teen Mom 2 is really on the internet’s bad side this week over what she shared on social media about Kobe Bryant’s death.
Famous basketball star Kobe Bryant tragically passed away two days ago, along with his 13-year-old daughter and seven other people, when his helicopter crashed right outside of Los Angeles.
The pilot radioed in to air traffic control to report that there was a layer of clouds he was trying to avoid.
Just moments later, the helicopter went down among the fog and crashed into the hills of Calabasas, California, before bursting into flames.

After news of Kobe Bryant’s death hit the media, many stars and celebs were quick to post tributes to him online, but that’s not what Kailyn Lowry did.
Kailyn posted on Twitter and Instagram a link to a clickbait kind of article about Kobe Bryant’s death.
If any of her followers clicked the article link, Kailyn Lowry got paid for it, and that is where people became incredibly upset.

“Money really can’t buy you (Kailyn Lowry) class, but I’m glad we could at least shame you into doing the right thing this one time,” someone said to Kailyn on Twitter.

Another user replied to her post with, “No. You don’t get to tweet this and make money off his death with clickbait on your Instagram.”
After the outpouring of enraged comments Kailyn’s posts earned her, she deleted both of them from Instagram and Twitter.
Kailyn then posted a tribute to Kobe Bryant, but the damage was already done with her previous posts. She has not replied to comments or addressed what she did as of right now.
