Snoop Dogg Apologizes To Gayle King: I Publicly Tore You Down In A Derogatory Manner
Snoop Dogg seems to have regrets for going so hard on journalist Gayle King.
While he was one of many celebrities to come for Gayle King after she questioned WNBA star Lisa Leslie on sexual allegations against the late Kobe Bryant, it was Snoop Dogg’s brutal, profanity-laced response that seemed to get the most attention.
He said in part, in a video that has since been deleted,
“Back off, b––, before we come get you.”
He clarified his actions shortly after and said he didn’t want to actually hurt her.
“Here’s a message for the people that need to know. I’m on a non-violent person. When I said what I said, I spoke for the people who felt like Gayle was very disrespectful towards Kobe Bryant and his family.”
“Now, with that being said, do I look like I would want any harm to come to a 70-year-old woman? I was raised way better than that. I don’t want to harm to come to her and I didn’t threaten her. All I did was said, ‘Check it out: you outta pocket for what you’re doing and we’re watching you. Have a little bit more respect for Vanessa, her babies, and Kobe Bryant’s legacy.’”
Now, he’s issuing an entire apology.
“Two wrongs don’t make no right. When you’re wrong, you gotta fix it. So with that being said, Gayle King, I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off of emotions…me being angry at questions that you asked. Umm, overreacted. Should have handled it way different than that. I was raised way better than that. So I would like to apologize to you publicly for the language that I used calling you out of your name and just being disrespectful.”
“I didn’t mean for it to be like that. I was just expressing myself for a friend that wasn’t here to defend himself. A lot of people look up to me and they love me and they appreciate me, so I want to let them know that anytime you mess up, it’s okay to fix it, it’s okay to man up and say that you’re wrong. I apologize. Hopefully we can sit down and talk privately. Have a good day.”
He revealed in the caption that it was his mother who helped him have a change of heart.
“Had a talk with my momma thank u mamma 2 wrongs don’t make it right time to heal @gayleking Peace n love Praying for u and your family as well as Vanessa and the kids”
He also shared a selfie with the caption,
“I’m at peace. Spread love. Lead by example”
