Snoop Dogg has publicly apologized to US newswoman Gayle King for attacking her over questions she asked basketball icon Lisa Leslie about her friend Kobe Bryant during a TV interview last week. The interview included a question King asked Leslie about 2003 sexual assault allegations against Bryant: a criminal case that was filed and later dismissed, and a civil suit that was out of court. An excerpt was posted that did not reflect the nature and tone of the full interview.
Snoop jumped on his Instagram page and posted a video message to the CBS journalist. "Out of pocket for that sh*t". Why y'all attacking us? We're the f**king worst. "I get sick of y'all". I wanna call you one. "She's not doing well and feels that she was put in a really awful position because that interview had already ran".More news: The Batman: First Look at Robert Pattinson in Batsuit
"How dare you try to tarnish my motherf**king homeboy's reputation, punk motherf**ker?" he continued, referring to Kobe's legacy.
King herself even took the unusual step of publicly criticizing her own network. Me being angry at questions that you asked.

West Coast rapper Snoop Dogg really wants to make things right with Gayle King.
"I just have never seen him as being the kind of person that would do something violating to a woman or be aggressive in that way", she responded.
"I should have handled it way different than that, I was raised way better than that, so I would like to apologise publicly for the language that I used and calling you out your name and just being disrespectful". "And I thought it was very powerful when she looked me in the eye, as a member of the media, to say it's time for the media to leave it alone and to back off".More news: Kobe Bryant honored at 2020 Oscars
"Anytime you mess up, it's OK to fix it, it's OK to man up to say that you're wrong", he said.
