Jada Pinkett Smith Confronts Snoop Dogg Over Hateful Gayle King Attack

Snoop Dogg received both praise and criticism after he had some choice words for veteran news anchor Gayle King while seemingly issuing a violent threat. Jada Pinkett Smith checked the California rapper for his comments as part of a larger conversation on an upcoming Red Table Talk episode.

King was the target of significant backlash after she brought up Kobe Bryant's past rape allegations in an interview with Lisa Leslie. Emotions were heightened as people mourned a big figure, and Snoop was one of the many individuals who were still processing the monumental loss. In the brief clip, which does not also last a complete min, you can see Snoop noticeably distressed and also emotional while Jada speaks about the effect of his actions and also words towards King, the reporter at the heart of the dispute. Way out of pocket.

"@GayleKing you can regain your place with us, but not by justifying what you did".

After inquiring whether the athlete thought the question was "fair", Leslie noted that as the case was eventually dismissed, "I think that's how we should leave it". We're the f-king worst. Don't you hang out with Oprah [Winfrey]? "We your people! You ain't come after fucking Harvey Weinstein asking them dumb ass questions". "I don't always get it flawless but I'm constantly striving to do it with compassion and integrity".

"When you first came out and you said what you said in regards to Gayle, my heart dropped", Pinkett Smith says in the preview shared to Facebook on Sunday. I felt like not exclusively have been you chatting with Gayle, nonetheless you might have been chatting with me.

The plan is to practice Saturday and put tonight's game behind them. "That's pretty much the story of the game". "It's exciting. Edmonton was also without Joakim Nygard (hand), Kris Russell (concussion), James Neal (foot) and Oscar Klefbom (shoulder).


"And so that's one of the reasons why I felt like I really wanted to have this conversation with you in the spirit of healing", she said. Umm, overreacted. Should have handled it way different than that. So, I would like to apologize to you publicly'. He went on to say "I$3 didn't mean it for it to be like that" and that he was "expressing myself for a friend that wasn't here to defend himself".

In the short part of the interview, which will air on February 26, Smith said that she was disappointed in how the 48-year-old "Drop It Like It's Hot" rapper treated King. King asked in a "CBS This Morning" interview.

She continued, "I know that if I had only seen the clip that you saw, I'd be extremely angry with me too".

Earlier than apologizing Wednesday, the rap legend had seemingly considerably defended his outrage, saying: "Once I mentioned what I mentioned, I spoke for the individuals who felt like Gayle was very disrespectful in the direction of Kobe Bryant and his household".
