50 Cent & Snoop Dogg Attack Gayle King for Kobe Bryant Rape Question in Interview

50 Cent and Snoop Dogg are calling out Gayle King.

The stars joined some outraged fans in criticizing Gayle for bringing up the late NBA superstar’s 2003 rape case in a CBS interview, which she is called “out-of-context,” and says she is “mortified.”

Gayle interviewed recently retired WNBA star Lisa Leslie about her relationship with Kobe for CBS This Morning, and a clip of her asking about Kobe‘s rape case was put online.

Gayle King. Out of pocket for that s–t. Way out of pocket. What do you gain from that? I swear to God, we’re the worst. We’re the f–king worst. We expect more from you, Gayle. Don’t you hang out with Oprah [Winfrey]? Why ya’ll attacking us? We your people. You ain’t coming after f–king [producer] Harvey Weinstein, asking them dumbass questions. I get sick of ya’ll,” Snoop said in an angry video.

50 uploaded a video of his commentary while watching the interview clip: “It’s not complicated. You just said it was dismissed,” he reacted.

Gayle then uploaded a response video on her social media.

“I’ve been up reading the comments about the interview I did with Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant, and I know that if I had only seen the clip that you saw, I’d be extremely angry with me too. I am mortified. I am embarrassed and I am very angry. Unbeknownst to me, my network put up a clip from a very wide-ranging interview, totally taken out of context, and when you see it that way, it’s very jarring,” she said.

“When the interview aired, we had a great reaction to it. I talked to Lisa last night. I believe that Lisa was OK with the interview. And I felt really good about the interview. Really good about the interview. So for the network to take the most salacious part, when taken out of context, and put it up online for people who didn’t see the interview is very upsetting to me and that’s something I’m going to have to deal with with them. There will be a very intense discussion about that.”
