Snoop Dogg went viral for his response to Gayle King questioning Lisa Leslie about her thoughts on Kobe Bryant’s 2003 rape case. The rapper took back to social media to clarify that he wishes no physical harm on the CBS journalist.
Snoop shared a video via Instagram where he clarified some things about his original message to Gayle King.
‘I am a non-violent person. When I said what I said, I spoke for people who felt that Gayle was very disrespectful to Kobe Bryant and his family. I didn’t want him to hurt her, I didn’t threaten her.’
He added that he was raised better than to want harm to come to a 70-year-old woman.
This comes after his video where he questioned why Gayle and Oprah are slandering black men like Kobe and Michael Jackson after they’ve passed away.
He said the words ‘back off before we come get you’ which some people are taking very seriously.
In a new interview, Oprah revealed that her friend is not doing good after this controversy. She also revealed that Gayle had to hire security.
‘She is not doing well. May I say she is not doing well because she has now death threats, and now has to travel with security, and she’s feeling very much attacked. Bill Cosby is… tweeting from jail and she’s not doing well and feels she was put in a really terrible position because that interview had already ran and in the context of the interview, everyone seemed fine. It was only because somebody, at the network, put up that clip. And I can see how people would obviously be very upset if you thought that Gayle was trying to press to get an answer from Lisa Leslie.’
What do you think about Snoop’s clarification video? Do you think this will get others to lighten up?
