Toke feels such comments are foolish and far from thoughtful.
According to her, before anyone does that, he or she should think about his or her own life, work and what people will say about them when they are also gone.
She added that lots of thinking should go into that before they come online to criticize.
Her words, “Before you criticize people for mourning a legend they haven’t met or paying their respect to Kobe, before you comment foolishly, think about your life, your work, your message to the world and hope that when it’s your turn to go the world will feel your departure.”
