It doesn't look as bad in the second picture but it still looks like it is there. The forward slant and forward curve of the fork fine tune how the bike steers, and make it more stable and less likely to unexpectedly buck you off onto your face. If the fork is bent back a bit, it can make steering a bit less smooth and more twitchy. As well, a bent fork might break, although that is highly unlikely. Also the impact that caused it may have damaged the ball bearing joint that connects the fork to the steering tube and that joint might wear out sooner.
