Abigail Disney has weighed in on Kobe Bryant's controversial past, after actress Evan Rachel Wood and a Washington Post journalist were berated for tweeting about a rape allegation against him from 2003, just hours after his death in a helicopter crash Sunday.
Disney - whose grandfather Roy O. Disney co-founded The Walt Disney Company - tweeted: 'I haven't said anything about Kobe so far because I felt some time needed to pass before weighing in. But yes, it's time for the sledgehammer to come out. The man was a rapist. Deal with it.'

The only people this will hurt are his widow, fatherless daughters and family and friends who are going through unbearable grief.
Some of his family's best memories are their trips to Disneyland!
This petty woman should be ashamed of herself.
All of us were on pins and needles waiting for this privileged nobody to weigh in.
Well, was he a rapist?
So are you the one to determine when she has the right to free speech?
Yes, Abigail, Bill Clinton is a rapist.
We all know you won’t deal with it.
She only makes the allegation after the man is dead and cannot defend himself. What a sleazy b!tch!
He was never convicted of it. They settled out of court.
Yes, he was. He admitted as much. Not sure why the anger at this being pointed out. Should be repeated every time his name comes up.
I did a little research and it’s clear to me that Kobe was a rapist.
All signs point to yes, given the huge settlement.
How big was it?
Usually cases like this is usually he says, she says. But not Kobe’s case. There’s a lot of evidence so that’s why Kobe paid his victim millions.
[What an outrageous comment to make.
The only people this will hurt are his widow, fatherless daughters and family and friends who are going through unbearable grief. ]
The case was dropped but there was a settlement. So who knows if it was rape, buyer’s remorse or simple gold digging.
If it wasn’t worth fighting in court then, there isn’t much point in sullying the guy’s reputation now. It only hurts his family.
Yes, but she should have waited a little longer.
Kobe was a flawed character. We should not idolize him.
Im sorry, but I will be yelling about the rapist Bill Clinton the day of his death.
He was never convicted, either.
And when I say she got no favors from him exchange for rape, I am excluding the possibility that a bloody anus and bruises from being throttled are the kinds of souvenirs an NBA fan might cherish from an encounter with even an outstanding athlete like Bryant.
I read somewhere that it was “six digits.” Remember he also bought his wife a yuge diamond ring — 7 or 8 carats or some such thing.
