AceShowbiz - Snoop Dogg is regretting his choice of words against Gayle King in a previous rant video. Admitting that he "overreacted" to an interview the "CBS This Morning" host did with Lisa Leslie about the late NBA legend Kobe Bryant, the rapper recently issued an apology to King.
In a new video he posted on Instagram on Wednesday, February 12, Dogg shared, "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 emotions…me being angry at questions that you asked. Overreacted."
He went on saying, "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 and calling you out on your name and 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," he continued, referring to Bryant who died last month alongside his daughter Gianna in a helicopter crash en route to her basketball game. "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," so he concluded. Meanwhile, Dogg hinted in the caption that he decided to apologize to King after having "a talk with my momma." He also sent best wishes to King, her family as well as Vanessa Bryant's family.
Dogg was among those who blasted King for bringing up 2003 rape accusations against Kobe in an interview with Leslie despite the case being dismissed years ago. In an explicit video, Dogg dragged King and said that she was being "out of pocket for that s**t."
"What do you gain from that? We expect more from you Gayle. Don't you hang out with [Oprah Winfrey]? Why are you all attacking us? We're your people. You don't come after Harvey Weinstein, asking those dumba** questions," he continued. "I'm sick of y'all. Funky doghead b***h. How dare you try to torch my homeboy's reputation, punk motherf****r. Respect the family and back off, b***h, before we come get you," he furiously added.
