Hip hop star Snoop Dogg is now feeling the heat after blasting CBS’ Gayle King last week.
Former National Security Advisor Susan Rice ripped him on Friday for his scathing criticism of “CBS This Morning” co-anchor Gayle King over a recent interview she did broaching the Kobe Bryant rape case, telling the popular rapper “back the f*** off.”
Rice claimed, “This is despicable. Gayle King is one of the most principled, fair and tough journalists alive. Snoop, back the f*** off. You come for @GayleKing, you come against an army. You will lose, and it won’t be pretty.”
Prior to that comment the Long Beach, California music star went on Instagram and said:
“Gayle King, out of pocket for that s**t, way out of pocket. What do you gain from that? I swear to g-d, we the worst, we the f*****g worst. We expect more from you, Gayle, don’t you hang out with Oprah? Why you all attacking us, we your people. You ain’t coming after f*****g Harvey Weinstein asking him dumb-a** questions. I get sick of you all … how dare you try and tarnish my mother******g homeboy’s reputation … respect the family and back off, b****, before we come get you.”
This threat coming in response to a CBS interview King held with WNBA great Lisa Leslie, a close friend of Bryant.
“It’s been said that his legacy is complicated because of a sexual assault charge that was dismissed in 2003, 2004. Is it complicated for you, as a woman, as a WNBA player?” King asked.
Leslie answered, “It’s not complicated for me at all,” While adding, “I just never see — have ever seen him being the kind of person that would be — do something to violate a woman or be aggressive in that way. That’s just not the person that I know.”
“Lisa, you wouldn’t see it, though. As his friend, you wouldn’t see it,” the host argued.
Leslie stated, “And that’s possible. I just don’t believe that.”
Following his dangerous declaration, Snoop would later temper his words: “I’m a non-violent person,” he announced. “When I said what I said, I spoke for the people who felt like Gayle was very disrespectful towards Kobe Bryant and his family.”
And expressed, “Now with that being said what I look like wanting some harm to come to a 70-year-old woman? I was raised way better than that. I don’t want no harm to come to her and I didn’t threaten her, all I did was said, ‘check it out, you outta pocket for what you doing and we watching you. Have a little more respect for Vanessa, her babies and Kobe Bryant’s legacy.’”
The Los Angeles Lakers’ legend died in a helicopter accident two weeks ago. His daughter Gianna perished in the crash as well.
