TV host, Gail King has been savaged after she brought up Kobe Bryant’s rape case in an interview.

King spoke to former WNBA player Lisa Leslie for a segment about Bryant’s life and his legacy on CBS This Morning.

During the conversation, King brought up the rape accusations faced by Kobe in 2003. That year, the athlete was charged with felony sexual assault after a 19-year-old woman accused him of raping her at a Colorado hotel. 

The case was dismissed the following year after prosecutors said the woman didn’t want to testify in court. A civil case was settled in 2005 and Bryant publicly apologised.

Snoop Dogg threatened to come and get Gail King.  Snoop Dogg posted a photo of Winfrey standing next to Harvey Weinstein along with a message reading “Did that fake ass micheal Jackson s— to tarnish his name with them lying ass kids and here she is with a known rapist smiling and laughing. F*** u and Gayle. Free bill Cosby.”

 Bill Cosby wrote an Instagram post from prison to thank Snoop Dogg for calling out Oprah Winfrey and Gayle King for doing interviews that "tarnish the image and legacy of Black men."
