Snoop Dogg Publicly Apologizes To Gayle King After Talking To His Mother

Snoop Dogg Publicly Apologizes To Gayle King After Talking To His Mother”

Gayle King, who is a journalist, was quickly attacked for asking the Kobe question by Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, rapper Boosie BadAzz, and LeBron James.

As for why the change of heart.

"Two wrongs don't make no right".

In his initial video rant, Snoop said King was "way out of pocket" before calling her a "funky dog-haired b-h" and a "punk motherf-ker" as he accused her of trying to "tarnish" the late National Basketball Association player's reputation. Respect the family and back off, bitch. We expect more from you, Gayle.

Snoop Dogg's initial video referring to the veteran broadcaster as a "funky doghead b - h" set off a firestorm on social media and traditional media, prompting thought pieces, op-eds and an endless stream of commentary about misogyny and relationship dynamics between black men and black women.

Snoop Dogg went the hardest at Gayle King, and in a now-deleted Instagram video he said: "Way out of pocket! When you're wrong, you gotta fix it", Snoop Dogg said in an Instagram video apologizing for his outburst. He apologized for the language he used and for being "disrespectful".

"Unbeknownst to me my network put up a clip from a very wide-ranging interview totally taken out of context, and when you see it that way it's very jarring", she said, describing her reaction as "mortified", "embarassed", and "very angry".

"(I) overreacted. Should have handled it differently than that.

"I was raised better than that", he said.

Snoop - when they brought me to my gated community and placed me inside of my penthouse, they didn't win nor did they silence me.

"A lot of people look up to me, and they love me and they appreciate me, so I want to let them know that any time you mess up, it's OK to fix it", Snoop said.

Bryant died, along with his daughter and seven other people, in a helicopter crash on January 26 in California.

King's words were insufficient to ward off Snoop's followers, and her longtime best friend Oprah Winfrey got emotional in a Today Show appearance, revealing that King was "not doing well because she has now death threats", and had to hire security to travel with her.

Nearly a week after creating a firestorm by insulting Gayle King and telling her to beware "before we come to get you", Snoop Dogg took to his Instagram account again on Wednesday, this time to formally apologise to the anchor. He also said he was angry because Bryant couldn't defend himself against the allegations. "Have a good day", he concluded.
