AceShowbiz - Snoop Dogg broke his silence as he's accused of threatening Gayle King over her questions about Kobe Bryant's rape case when interviewing former WNBA star Lisa Leslie. He posted a new video and insisted he meant no harm to the anchor.
"I'm a non-violent person," Snoop said in the video. "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," he added, "what I look like wanting some harm to come to a 70-year-old woman? I was raised way better than that. I don't want no 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 doing and we watching you. Have a little more respect for Vanessa, her babies and Kobe Bryant's legacy.' "
The rapper said he only "speak from the heart," before quipping, "Some of you who don't have a heart wouldn't understand that."
People had problem with Snoop Dogg over his rant, "Funky dog head b***h…respect the family and backoff. Before we come get you." Ambassador Susan Rice reacted on Twitter, "This is despicable. Gayle King is one of the most principled, fair and tough journalists alive. Snoop, back the **** off. You come for @GayleKing, you come against an army. You will lose, and it won't be pretty."
Gayle King hasn't made any comment on Snoop's messages, but her friend Oprah Winfrey recently said, "She is not doing well. She has now death threats and has to now travel with security and she's feeling very much attacked."
