Rapper Snoop Dogg apologized on Wednesday for an obscenity-laced tirade in which he appeared to threaten attacking a CBS news anchor over an interview about late basketball star Kobe Bryant.
Snoop Dogg’s harangue on social media had followed an interview that “CBS This Morning” anchor Gayle King had with former women’s basketball star Lisa Leslie which referenced a 2003 sexual abuse allegation against Bryant.
“Two wrongs don’t make no right. When you’re wrong, you gotta fix it,” Snoop Dogg said in an Instagram video apologizing for his outburst. “So with that being said, Gayle King, I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off of emotions, me being angry at questions that you asked,” Snoop Dogg said, adding that he “overreacted” to the interview.
“I should have handled it way different than that — I was raised way better than that. 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.”
