Kobe's wife wears "Do I look illegal" shirt, only one talking immigration

May 18, 2010, 9:03 AM EDT

vanessa_Bryant.jpgPhil Jackson isn’t going to talk about it. Kobe Bryant won’t go near it. The Lakers aren’t going to talk about it or wear their Los Lakers jerseys. While there was a small protest outside, inside Staples Center the Arizona Immigration law discussion was dead.

Except for Kobe Bryant’s wife.

Vanessa Bryant is part Hispanic and she wore a shirt that said, “Do I look illegal?” to the game.

The reference was clear.

She — and often the couple’s daughters — are regulars at Lakers games. They tend to stay out of the limelight, as much as that is possible for a high-profile family. But she gets noticed, and used that to make a statement at Game 1 against Arizona.

    Kate…maybe you wish it was you who went up to Kobe’s hotel room. One thing for sure, you have validated that you are another arrogant Laker fan. Of course, the Lakers are the only thing positive California has going lately. Worst of luck to you.

    Well African Americans were brought here by force, so what is their status?

    It takes a big man to talk crap from behind the cover of a PC. Live with the fact that Kobe went through due process of law, regardless of your low-life opinion and cowardly statements. Whatever the state of the relationship between Kobe and his wife or anyone else and their spouse is nobody’s business. That junk belongs on some cheap entertainment rag site.
