Snoop Receives Heat for Gayle King Remarks!!! The situation about Gayle King asking Lisa Leslie about Kobe’s alleged sexual assault case is heating up. And, Snoop is dead smack in the middle of the controversy.
Why ya’ll turning on Snoop?
Snoop receives heat for Gayle King remarks. First, lets start with what caused all this mess. Like most people I saw the interview with Gayle and Lisa. And, I was upset with the line of questioning Gayle asked Lisa. And, by now we all know that Gayle wanted to press Lisa about the alleged sexual assault case against Kobe. By the way, Lisa handled the interview very well.
Secondly, after a clip from the interview with Lisa and Gayle aired many celebrities voiced their concerns. However, it was Snoops comments that caused Susan Rice to fire back a real personal attack against him, as reported by NBC News. Although, Gayle went on her social media live to allegedly back pedal. It was to no avail.
Why is Susan sending an army after Snoop?
Now, certainly, Snoop was out of pocket for calling Gayle, (funky dog – head b****). However, what was more disturbing to me was Susan Rice (former national security advisor) alleged verbal attack against Snoop. Here is what Susan had to say:
“Gayle King is one of the most principled, fair and tough journalists alive,”Rice tweeted Friday. “Snoop, back the ****off. You come for @GayleKing, you come against an army. You will lose, and it won’t be pretty.”
Of course, Snoop took to his social media once he heard Susan’s comments. Did Snoop feel the heat from Susan’s words? Or did Snoop want to clarify what he meant? Personally, I think that the situation has gotten out of hand. We should be spending our time on more pressing matters in our community. Especially, as it relates to child sex trafficking, homelessness, and racism, just to mention a few.
Certainly, I don’t agree with any name calling. However, Susan was out of line for her comments, as well. Who sends an army after someone for speaking their truth? Again, I don’t condone Snoops choice of words. But you can tell Snoop was sincere. On the other hand, why did Gayle feel the need to defended herself. Gayle knew that asking Lisa controversial questions could backfire on her. A good journalist knows controversy comes with the assignment.
And, as for Susan, really, you only make matters worst when you feed the fire. Needless to say, this situation can only get worst before it gets better. SMH!
