Folks are big mad with Gayle King!
The CBS This Morning star came under fire Wednesday after she asked WNBA star Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant’s sexual assault charge during their exclusive sit-down.
Many took issue with how King broached the subject and seemingly pressed Leslie about Bryant’s character. Then there were those pissed she brought it up altogether.
The latter was Snoop Dogg.
“Gayle King, out of pocket for that s–t, way out of pocket.” Snoop said in a monologue posted on Instagram, “Respect the family and back off, bitch, before we come get you.
“I wanna call you one … Funky, dog-haired bitch, how dare you try and tarnish my motherf–king homeboy’s reputation, punk motherf–ker.
His message, titled “P.S.A. Let the family mourn in peace,” had more than 1.1 million likes by Thursday morning.
But he wasn’t the only one furious. Rap stars Lil Boosie and 50 Cent also slammed King in videos posted on line.

Laker star LeBron James took a milder approach and posted a message of support to Lisa Leslie.

Others taking aim at King included D.L. Hughley, and Lil Duval.
But even King has said she is not happy. On Thursday morning, she slammed her own network for distributing an “out-of-context” clip and said she plans to hold a “very intense” conversation with CBS News executives.
“I’ve been up reading the comments about the interview I did with Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant, and I know that if I had only seen the clip that you saw, I’d be extremely angry with me too,” King said in an Instagram video. “I am mortified. I am embarrassed and I am very angry.”
