Justin Sun on Kobe Bryant’s Death

Days back, Justin also criticized for dedicating his next TRON summit in the name of the legendary basketball player “Kobe Bryant” as we are all aware that Kobe died a few days back in a terrible helicopter crash along with his daughter.

Justin also mentioned Kobe in his tweet and said: it was great to meet Kobe at Nitron 2019; you were one of the kindest names in my life. I am always going to remember that how you and I discussed the future of blockchain in niTROn 2019, and this time we will go to spend a minute of silence in honor of you at niTROn 2020. This tweet also received bad feedback and a bit of adverse reaction for using the human tragedies, to promote and gain attraction for TRON summit “niTROn 2020”. 

A twitter user replied to Justin’s tweet “one thing you should know Justin, using Kobes death as a marketing play speaks of your bad manners”. Also, many users noted a wrong response criticizing Justin sun for using Kobe for the promotion of their niTROn 2020. 

One user also mentioned that it is not always necessary to use the acquaintance with Kobe Bryant “as PR for the blockchain.” One even said “the words in the tweet would be sincere if the blockchain and niTROn were not mentioned in the tweet twice. Form the user perspective it looks like a bad commercial, probably also deliberate”. Not all the users criticized, some users also consider Justin tweet as respectful.
