The Associated press news agency is today reporting that rapper Snoop Dogg has apologised to journalist, Gayle King for his fiery social media remarks over her questioning of Lisa Leslie on the topic of Kobe Bryant’s dismissed rape case.
“Two wrongs don’t make no right. when you’re wrong, you gotta fix it.” Snoop Dogg.
Snoop, in his anger last week, took to social media where he condemned King over her line of questioning. He lashed out at King so harshly that others felt compelled to pummel the television personality. The rapper has however said he was wrong. “So with that being said, Gayle King, I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off of emotions of me being angry at a question you asked. I Overreacted,” he said. “I should have handled it way different than that, I was raised way better than that, so I would like to apologize publicly for the language that I used and calling you out, and just being disrespectful.”
In the aftermath of Snoop’s social media slaying of King, several persons, including the head of CBS News, former Obama administration official Susan Rice, and award winning author Ta-Nehisi Coates stood against Snoop’s rant, arguing that he was wrong for attacking her. “Anytime you mess up, it’s OK to fix it, it’s OK to man up to say that you’re wrong,” he said. “I apologize. hopefully we can sit down and talk, privately,” wrote the rapper.
