Take Oscar Nomination Away From Kobe Byrant, a Known Rapist

  • by: Kelsey B.

The Oscars almost avoided nominating sexual predators for awards. Woody Allen and James Franco didn't get anything. But Kobe Bryant, who was charged with a horrific sexual assault, was nominated.

Sign the petition to ask The Academy to rescind this nomination because Kobe Bryant is a known rapist.

In 2003, Kobe Bryant raped a 19-year-old hotel employee. He tried to avoid being charged by paying off his victim and settled a civil assault case out of court. 

An important conversation has been started about sexual assualt and harassment, so why is Bryant being honored for best animated short if Time really is Up?

Sign on to ask The Academy to take this nomination away.
