Grief Lightning Attempts To Use Kobe Bryant’s Death To Drum Up Sales For Failing Photography Business


This is Vienna Groom from Enfield, CT.

She’s really upset about the death of Kobe Bryant, and because of that she’s decided to profit off of the grief and sorrow we’re all feeling for the man.

So let met get this straight. A celebrity died 3,000 miles away, and you’re using this tragedy AND the guilt of your missing cants and schizo brother to try to get people to pay you money to have their pictures taken?

Perfectly normal thing to do.

Some heartless assholes pointed out that this was probably in bad taste.

But it’s OK because she’s only making $35 a shoot.

Plus, people do remixes from dead musicians’s music, so it’s OK.

Sure, they pay royalties, but we’ll just ignore that part. She’s arbitrarily decided that $35 is an OK amount to profit off of the death of Kobe Bryant, because “we’re all grieving.”

No bitch. Just no. You are not grieving, and neither is anyone else. I liked Kobe, and I feel awful about what he and his daughter went through in their final moments, but we are not grieving.

Here’s a pro-tip – don’t quit your day job to open your own photography business if you’re dependent upon an Enfield Facebook group to drum up business.

Oh, and she doesn’t like your autistic kids all up in crotch fruit’s grill at the pool either.

So yea, if you’re down in the dumps about Kobe Bryant dying and wanna piss away some money to make yourself feel better, call up my girl Olivia so she can take some pictures and make all your pain go away.

    Here’s an idea for the future, Vienna. Jello Shots. When the Cos sheds his mortal coil you can make a killing selling Jello Shots.

    Considering turtleboy and Worcester digital marketing LLC make whatever income they get off the misery of others it’s pretty funny that they’re calling out this woman for doing the same thing

      The people TB exposes are not suffering. They are human scum who are PROUD of their behavior and need to be taken down a peg or two. Nice try Vienna.

    Yeah this one aint it TB. I’d take this down…I dont think this mistake is worth for her to be put on blast on a big time blog

    She’s not trying to scam for welfare , she’s trying to make a living. Good for her. Unlike Kobe she presumably didn’t rape anyone. The fact is that Kobe and his big fucking ego killed his daughter by demanding a flight in bad weather so fuck him and good for her. You don’t mind those cunts on tv and at Nike all profiting from his death with their all Kobe all the time bullshit.
    This is truly TB at his assholian ratchet worst.
    Good for her and fuck you since you are trying to profit off his death by slamming her for trying to profit off his death. I’d love to profit off his death the fucking low life daughter killer that he is.

    she’s rude as h***, letting her cats out to feed the wildlife, a typically white trash behavior, and taking photos at crash sites to build her portfolio (i.e. people standing in front of a tree).

    Hey vienna, I’ll let you take a picture of my hairy Butt hole but I can only pay you with my EBT card because I live in Brockton and don’t have a job.

  • I like her a lot
    January 30, 2020 at 11:12 pm

    TB, give her a break, and give us a break. In asking for work she says “it would help me out a lot.” Kudos to her, aside from the fact she’s trying to work and be self-supporting, she actually knows her grammar! She uses the correct “a lot” instead of the ungrammatical “alot” that most imbeciles today write and think. It feels like years since I’ve seen the correct grammar on that issue. She seems thoughtful and responsible about her children. No drug use, no prostitution, no welfare. She’d probably make a nice neighbor. TB, when that helicopter went down, it left your brain in the fog. Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good….

      You are right. I was wrong. This is just an entrepreneur trying to feed herself and her kids.

      I’m sorry that a group of people including children died in an aviation accident. I couldn’t care less that one of them was a sports ball player but I understand that this means something to others. This chick didn’t do the unpardonable like rob elders in a nursing home or send dick picks to little girls. I got it wrong.

  • TB Is Taking Kobes Death Way Too Hard
    January 30, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Ive loved almost every TB article but this one is not one of them. Whats with your fascination with Kobe ? You defend him like a ratchet defends her fake Facebook account. I dont get what this girls done to be slammed on TB. Youre way too harsh this time.

    Just a dopey person with poor judgement. Slow news day. Tomorrow some useless eater from Woonsocket, Worcester, or New Bedford will do something incredibly anti-social. Looking forward to the shaming.

    I still think the neutron bomb idea is a winner.

    Hi Vienna, could you set up an outdoor shoot for me? I just got back from bow hunting and bagged three nice house cats. I think a nice set of me and my kill would look great over my fireplace.

    January 30, 2020 at 7:35 pm

    This is outrageous!!! I hope she gets sued and all the proceeds go to Kobe’s rape victims!

  • WeRFucked
    January 30, 2020 at 7:34 pm

    I’m going to have her take a few shots of me in various stages of undress between flaccid and erect.

    $35? DEAL! $17.50 at the shoot (get a close-up of the money shot) and the balance of $17.50 when I get the thumb drive!

      There is worse out there. People selling fake Bryant shirts at ridiculous markups.. The list goes on..
      Anyone looking at her “work” knows not to bite.
      Where the f*ck is South Shore Turtle Girl is what I want to know.

        She does have some witty comebacks tho.

        That Zack who sending her messages, I wonder if it is the same Zack pussy who gets his shit pushed in by me on Stephan Molynuex’s bitchute channel for defending Air Bryant.
