Snoop Dogg issues formal apology to Gayle King after explicit rant

The interview included a question King asked Leslie about 2003 sexual assault allegations against Bryant: a criminal case that was filed and later dismissed, and a civil suit that was out of court.

"Top of the morning!" He added. "2 wrongs don't make it right".

Whichever way you put it, Snoop Dogg says he never meant any disrespect- yet he was just defending his friend who is no longer with us. He later insisted he "didn't threaten" King, but didn't actually apologize. "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". We your people. You ain't coming after f**king [producer] Harvey Weinstein, asking them dumba** questions.

"(I) overreacted. Should have handled it differently than that. I was raised way better than that.

Snoop Dogg said he felt he had to defend his friend Bryant.

"A lot of people look up to me, and they love me and they appreciate me, so I want to let them know that any time you mess up, it's OK to fix it", Snoop said.

Nearly a week after creating a firestorm by insulting Gayle King and telling her to beware "before we come to get you", Snoop Dogg took to his Instagram account again on Wednesday, this time to formally apologise to the anchor. "Have a good day", he concluded.

"Had a talk with my momma", begins the caption on his Instagram post declaring his apology.

Snoop Dogg was furious that the "CBS This Morning" anchor brought up rape allegations from Bryant's past in her larger interview with Leslie, a friend of Bryant. "Is it complicated for you, as a woman, as a WNBA player?"

King has yet to respond to Snoop's mea culpa.

After attempting to clarify his expletive-laced comments on Saturday and the subsequent social media backlash, the world-renowned rapper issued a formal apology via Instagram on Wednesday.

Allegedly prompted by a conversation with his mother, Snoop apologized today in a video on Instagram. "Respect the family and back off, b--, before we come get you". "That's just not the person that I know". "I am mortified. I am embarrassed and I am very angry". Winfrey, who has faced similar blowback recently over her involvement in a Russell Simmons sexual misconduct documentary, called the criticism "misogynist vitriol". All I did was said, 'Check it out: you outta pocket for what you're doing and we're watching you.
