On her Instagram Story, Kobe Bryant’s widow Vanessa explained why she blocked all Kobe and her daughter Gigi fan accounts, via Page Six:

“Thx so much of all the 💜,” Vanessa wrote. “@nataliabryant and I have unfortunately had to block fan pages because it’s been really hard to go online and constantly see pics of our beloved Gigi and Kobe under every single square of our explore pages. Blocking the fan pages has helped change the algorithm.”

“We 💜 you all but please understand that we had to do this for our own healing not because we don’t appreciate your 💜,” she added. “Xo.”
