SNOOP DOGG: Apologize to Gayle King

SNOOP DOGG: Apologize to Gayle King

Snoop Dogg is finally saying sorry to Gayle King.

Last week, the rapper and VH1 personality attacked the CBS This Morning host over an interview she conducted with Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant’s legacy, in which King brought up the alleged sexual assault Kobe was accused of.

A few days later, Snoop tried to downplay his initial comments, saying he wasn’t threatening her, just speaking passionately on behalf of die hard Kobe fans. After the half-hearted apology, Snoop is now showing real remorse, writing, “Gayle King, I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off of emotions about me being angry about questions that you asked. I overreacted. Should have handled it way different than that… so I would like to apologize to you publicly for the language that I used and calling you out… and just being disrespectful.”

He ended his apology by saying he hopes they can sit down and speak privately to clear up any bad blood.

Hot Takes:

  • Still waiting on an apology from 50 Cent.
  • This seemed a little more sincere than his last attempt to make amends.
  • He’s only apologizing because he’s being called out.
  • Snoop’s old enough to know better. Good on him for acting mature in the end, even if it wasn’t his first instinct.
