New York, NY – Snoop Dogg ignited a flurry of controversy when he lashed at out at seasoned journalist Gayle King for her CBS This Morning interview with WNBA legend Lisa Leslie.
During their conversation, King broached the topic of Kobe Bryant’s 2003 ***ual assault case and appeared to belabor the point after Leslie politely confirmed it didn’t complicate Bryant’s legacy for her.

Like countless others, Snoop felt the timing of the question was inappropriate and insensitive considering Bryant had just passed away. So, he impulsively headed to Instagram and issued a proper “fuck u” to both King and Oprah Winfrey.
He elaborated on the topic in a follow-up Instagram video, drawing the wrath of former U.S. National Security Adviser Susan Rice who told him to “back the **** off” of King.
After Snoop said he had a conversation with his mother, he decided to publicly apologize to King, stating he was “raised better” than that.
