“It brings back memories of that day, because at the time we didn’t even know his name. We couldn’t even give him the dignity of his name. He was just a black man underneath the car. All we had seen was the knee on this neck and that was hard enough to see,” she explained.

“I start thinking about all kinds of things about that video. That’s what’s making me so emotional, that his last words were ‘Mom,’ ‘Mama.’ This is what’s getting me…it goes to the primal instinct that we all have, because your mother is your ultimate protector and his mother died two years ago. We didn’t know that at the time. When I got emotional, I didn’t know that. But we know that now.”

She went on to reflect on her own son, Will.

“My son is 33 years old, and I’m worried about him, saying, ‘Will, please don’t walk Scott [his dog], please don’t take him for long walks, everything is so volatile. He lives in the Santa Monica area, close to there, so he can hear the police choppers and he can hear the sounds of the city. And Santa Monica as you know is a very affluent town…but I’m worried about him walking his frickin’ dog…I worry for him being a black man, period.”

“I worry a lot about his safety. Welcome to being black in America. This is not new,” she added.

Here are resources to help support the Black Lives Matter cause.

Oprah Cries While Admitting Gayle King Has Gotten 'Death Threats' Over Kobe Bryant Interview Question Scandal (Video)

Oprah Winfrey is worried about her friend, Gayle King.

The 66-year-old entrepreneur made an appearance on Hoda & Jenna & Friends on Friday (February 7) to discuss the backlash Gayle‘s endured for asking Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant‘s rape trial in an interview, which the network teased in a promo that angered many people.

“I think the last 24 hours for your best friend have been pretty difficult after that interview with Lisa Leslie about Kobe. And I just wondered just how she’s doing,” Hoda Kotb asked.

“She is not doing well. he has now death treats and has to now travel with security and she’s feeling very much attacked. You know, Bill Cosby is tweeting from jail,” Oprah said while tearing up.

She added she “feels that she was put in a really terrible position.”

“In the context of the interview, everyone seemed fine, including Lisa Leslie. And it was only because somebody at the network put up that clip. And I can see how people would obviously be very upset if you thought that Gayle was just trying to press to get an answer from Lisa Leslie…obviously all things pass, she will be okay, but she hasn’t slept in two days.”

She went on to discuss the hate more in-depth.

“It’s not just the people who are attacking. It’s the other people who take that message and feel like they can do whatever they want to because of it, you know?”

“You know, I was on the phone with her this morning, I was on the phone with her last night, I was on the phone with her the night before. I think you stand in the gap, you try to be there for your friends. But this is very hard, because when you have social media and the force of social media, and particularly people who didn’t see either interview, making attacks.”

Here’s what Gayle King said in her defense.
