The firestorm that surrounded a video posted by Snoop Dogg to CBS anchor Gayle King has gone off the rails.
Snoop Dogg (and most of the country) was offended that Gayle King (and other feminists) keep dragging up a settled 17-year-old “He Said/She Said” sexual assault case that involved Kobe Bryant in order to smear his name and score some desperate #MeToo points.
Snoop made a video where he called out King and appeared to make a “threat” of some kind, by suggesting if she didn’t stop going after Kobe’s memory “they were coming for her.”
I guess that could be interpreted a few different ways, but it definitely can be taken as a “death threat” as well.
You can watch the video Snoop made below:
This video of Snoop threatening @GayleKing is disgusting
Referring to Gayle he says: "Funky dog head bitch…respect the family and backoff. Before we come get you.”

Snoop, however, says that was not what he meant at all. He’s now clarifying what was said:
“When I said what I said, I spoke for the people who felt like Gayle was very disrespectful towards Kobe Bryant and his family,” he said. “Now with that being said, what do 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 say, ‘Check it out. You out of pocket for what you doing, and we watching you. Have a little bit more respect for Vanessa, her babies and Kobe Bryant’s legacy.'”
I think that’s very reasonable. He probably should have said that to begin with, but then again he wouldn’t have gotten the attention that he did if he had – and as we all know – everything is about “attention” good or bad.
“When I said what I said, I spoke for the people who felt like Gayle was very disrespectful towards Kobe Bryant and his family,” Snoop Dogg said.
“Now with that being said, what do 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 say, ‘Check it out, you outta pocket for what you doing and we watching you. Have a little bit more respect for Vanessa, her babies and Kobe Bryant’s legacy.’”
The video was referencing an Instagram post from Wednesday in which Snoop Dogg criticized King for asking retired WNBA star Lisa Leslie in an interview on “CBS This Morning” if she thought Kobe Bryant’s legacy was “complicated” by a 2003 sexual assault charge.
“What do you gain from that? I swear to god, we the worst. We the f—— worst,” he said in the Wednesday video. “We expect more from you, Gayle,” he said in the Wednesday video. “Why y’all attacking us? We your people! You ain’t come after f—— Harvey Weinstein, asking them dumb-ass questions. I get sick of y’all.”
After insulting King with more expletives, he ended the video with “back off, b—-, before we come get you.” [NBC News]
As a woman, I really think these #MeToo feminists need to stop trying to use a loving father and a legend and hero in countless communities as a whipping post for their anti-man, toxic movement.
Enough is enough. Let the man and his daughter rest in peace.
