Snoop Dogg apologized to Gayle King for calling her out of her name for asking Lisa Leslie a question about the late Kobe Bryant’s legacy.
King said in a statement issued via CBS News Thursday, “I accept the apology and understand the raw emotions caused by this tragic loss. I’m deeply sorry that questions I asked added to that pain. That was never my intention. As a journalist, it is sometimes challenging to balance doing my job with the emotions and feelings during difficult times. I don’t always get it perfect but I’m constantly striving to do it with compassion and integrity.”
