Why is Kobe Bryant banging on this drum?
He’s the “global brand ambassador” for Turkish Airlines now. He was at the inaugural flight ceremony launch not too long ago. He appeared onstage at the Paramount Studios lot. He shook hands with the chairman of the airlines as the first flight was making its way from Los Angeles to Istanbul.
In the meantime, members of the Armenian community have been pretty pissed off at Bryant. He’s got a two-year endorsement deal. Some Armenians call it “blood money.”
