Gayle King has accepted Snoop Dogg’s apology.
As we all know, Snoop popped ALL the way off on Gayle after she asked WNBA star Lisa Leslie on CBS This Morning earlier this month about the sexual assault charge brought against Kobe Bryant in the early 2000s.
“I accept the apology and understand the raw emotions caused by this tragic loss,” Gayle said in a statement to the Associated Press.
She also addressed how “as a journalist, it is sometimes challenging to balance doing my job with the emotions and feelings during difficult times,” adding, “I don’t always get it perfect but I’m constantly striving to do it with compassion and integrity.”
Her statement comes after Snoop apologized for the video, admitting he “overreacted.”
“Two wrongs don’t make no right. When you’re wrong, you gotta fix it. … Gayle King, I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off of emotions, being angry at questions that you asked,” Snoop said.
“So I would like to apologize to you publicly for the language that I used and calling you out of your name and just being disrespectful,” continued the rapper. He went on to say that he “didn’t mean it for it to be like that” and that his intention was “expressing myself for a friend that wasn’t here to defend himself.”
