Vanessa shared a petition to save a mural of Kobe and Gianna Bryant that is currently painted outside Hardcore Fitness in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles-based artist Sloe Motions painted the popular mural outside the building in January 2020 after Kobe and Gianna Bryant were among the nine people who died in a helicopter crash.

Cecilia Moran, the owner of Hardcore Fitness, said the building’s owner wants the mural removed so he can sell advertising.

“What he has notified me is, if I don’t remove the mural by Dec. 31 he’s going to be doing it and I’ll have to pay all the costs that involves,” Moran told ABC7. “I’m OK with that, because I refuse and I’m going to stand for what I believe. And what I believe is that’s not right.

“I don’t believe in destroying something that has so much impact on people.”

As of publication, the petition has more than 27,000 signatures. The owner of the building is yet to make a public comment.
