Snoop Dogg apologizes to Gayle King in new video
Snoop Dogg posted a new video on Instagram Wednesday to apologize to Gayle King for coming after her over the CBS anchor’s interview with Lisa Leslie that included a focus on Kobe Bryant’s sexual assault case.
King, who has been an anchor for “CBS This Morning” since 2012, took heat last week after CBS shared a clip from her interview with the former WNBA star that focused on questions about Bryant’s sexual assault case. Many people did not see the full interview with Leslie, which talked about many other subjects, and only saw the specific clip shared by CBS on Twitter that made it seem like King was pursuing an agenda about the case. That led some people to get angry with King, feeling like she was unfairly going after Bryant’s legacy.
The backlash was spearheaded by Snoop, who went after King in a profanity-laced video.
On Wednesday, Snoop apologized to King in an Instagram video where he acknowledged he was wrong and said “two wrongs don’t make a right.”
Snoop admitted he was angry over the questions King asked Leslie and overreacted. He apologized for the language he used and for being “disrespectful.” He also said part of the reason for the apology was to show those who look up to him that it’s OK to apologize when you’re wrong.
Even though it took a week, it’s never too late to apologize. Snoop sent a terrible message last week by going after King and riled up his millions of followers while doing so. At least he finally made up for it, because he was out of line, and so many others followed his lead.
