Snoop Dogg Is Sorry He Overreacted to Gayle King’s Interview About Kobe

A week or so ago, a clip of Gayle King asking WNBA star Lisa Leslie if Kobe Bryant’s 2003 sexual assault case complicates his legacy made the rounds. A lot of Kobe fans began frothing at the mouth calling Gayle disrespectful with her question. This included Snoop Dogg who called her a “funky dog head bitch” and was trying to “tarnish my motherfuckin’ home boy’s reputation.” He told her to “back off, bitch, before we come get you.” And rightfully so. Don’t you know how many championships Kobe won?

Snoop is now taking it back saying her overreacted. He said his mom told him “2 wrongs don’t make a right.”

To be fair, this was a valid question. In 2003, a worker at a ski resort in Colorado alleged Kobe Bryant had sexually assaulted her. Her identity was leaked which lead to the media and Kobe’s defense team dragging her. A week before opening statements, she told the court she wouldn’t testify. She later sued him in civil court. The case was settled for an undisclosed amount. During the investigation, Kobe partially admitted to the act. In one interview, he even told the investigator he should have done what Shaq does and pay them off. After all this was done, Kobe bought Vanessa Bryant a huge rock to make it up to her.

This is pretty similar to the Chris Brown fans who say Rihanna deserved being punched in the face so much that she ended up looking like tenderized meat. It’ll be interesting to hear what Brown’s fans have to say whenever he dies and they ask about this domestic violence incident. I’m sure the answer will be something like, “Oh, but did you see the way he danced?!”

Then again, 5 championships does deserve to erase an alleged sexual assault. That POS Chris Brown has only one grammy. And Harvey Weinstein? He’s going to need a lot more Oscars to erase those rapes from everyone’s memory.
