"I am mortified, I'm embarrassed and I am very angry", she said. What do you gain from that? He said, "How dare you try to tarnish my motherf-king homeboy's reputation, punk motherf-ker?" he continued. She mentioned that other basketball players "tried to get her to play wing-man for them", but Kobe was "not the kind of guy" and "was never like that". After a full day of dragging, the CBS This Morning host finally stepped in to address the controversy on Thursday morning. "We find the threats against her or any journalist doing their job reprehensible".

"I know that if I had only seen the clip that you saw, I would be extremely angry with me, too", she said.

She added, "I think the vitriol ... anybody can criticize anything, but the misogynist vitriol and the attacking to the point where it is unsafe to be in the streets alone because it's not just the people who are attacking". First, he said that people are hurt and felt the loss of all the victims deeply, and during a time when the city is trying to stay positive and come together, King's remarks were out of line.

Last week, an editor at The Washington Post said that a reporter who was suspended for tweets she posted in the immediate aftermath of Bryant's death had not violated the newspaper's social media policy.

Later on, Leslie replied, "I think the media should be more respectful at this time". King later called it an "out of context clip". She later filed a civil lawsuit but the matter was settled out of court in 2005, USA Today reports.

Snoop says he's a non-violent person and was raised better than that. We your people. You ain't coming after f**king [producer] Harvey Weinstein, asking them dumba** questions.

"Here's a message for the people that need to know", the Doggfather said in an Instagram video.

Following the criticism, King explained her side of the story via Twitter, stating that many people took her question out of context since CBS News only posted the clip of that one question about Bryant to Twitter. Yeah. But anyway, I'm going to do what I got to keep doing.

Actress Rose McGowan has blasted Snoop Dogg for verbally attacking US newswoman Gayle King after she raised Kobe Bryant's 2003 rape scandal in an interview with a friend of the tragic athlete. "So I would like to apologize to you publicly for the language that I used and calling you out on your name and being disrespectful", said the rapper in a video he shared on Instagram on Wednesday. "And we will - there will be a very intense discussion about that".

CBS later released a statement saying the clip "did not reflect the nature and tone" of the complete interview.
