​ ​ ​ ​

Mama Snoop Doog doesn’t play!

Rapper Snoop Dogg had a conversation with his mother following controversial comments (that some said went too far) he made about Gayle King in regards to her interview with former WNBA player Lisa Leslie about NBA icon Kobe Bryant. Mama Snoop Dogg had to remind the west coast rapper two wrongs don’t make a right and their conversation encouraged Snoop to offer up a public apology for his disrespectful comments. “

“Had a talk with my momma thank u mamma,” he captioned his video. “2 wrongs don’t make it right time to heal @gayleking Peace n love Praying for u and your family as well as Vanessa and the kids.”

“Two wrongs don’t make no right, he continued. “When you’re wrong, you gotta fix it. Gayle King, I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off of emotions…me being angry at questions that you asked.”

You’ll recall, Snoop went on social media tirade against the “CBS This Morning” co-anchor for questions she asked Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant’s legacy. In the interview, Gayle brought up rape allegations made against Kobe and asked Lisa if she felt the accusations “complicates” his legacy.

“Gayle King, out of pocket for that sh*t, way out of pocket,” he said. Then, he called her a “funky, dog-head b*tch” before issuing a warning that said, “Respect the family and back off, b*tch, before we come get you.”

Gayle's bestie Oprah said Gayle wasn't doing good after the backlash and was receiving death threats. The rapper-turned-TV host admitted he overacted and could have handled the situation better.

“Should have handled it way different than that. I was raised way better than that. So I would like to apologize to you publicly for the language that I used and calling you out of your name and just being disrespectful.”

The “Drop It Like It’s Hot” rapper said he didn’t mean to come off so harshly and that he was expressing his anger to defend a friend who’s no longer here to defend himself.

Snoop even said he's open to having a private conversation with Gayle to officially bury the hatchet.

“I apologize. Hopefully we can sit down and talk privately. Have a good day," he concluded.

Several celebs hopped in his IG comments to give him props for owning up to his mistake and making it right:

"Big love bro. We all know where ur heart is. Your real day one s the niccah s that knew you back at VIP records in Long Beach... we love u dog," actor/singer/comedian Jamie Foxx wrote.

"Proud of you for doing this!,"EMMY winning writer Lena Waithe said.

"I ride with you Snoop . Proud of you," singer Stephanie Mills responded.

"I commend you my brother @snoopdogg Courageous, loving and kind is who I know you to be, even in the face of aggravation. And this is why we love you and Mama Snoop toooooo," rapper MC Lyte wrote.

"Love you And Moms is best !!! Hug her for me," rapper MC Hammer wrote.

"Snoop, thank you so much for doing this. Knowing the way you move, I knew what you said was out of character and coming from a place of hurt. None of us are perfect, but it’s helpful if we find a way to correct or dialogue with each other without it resorting to something that potentially causes harm. I fully expect there will be people who will say you have nothing to apologize for, but those people don’t understand the level of vitriol directed at black women social media. I knew you wouldn’t want any part of that," sports journalist Jemele Hill wrote.

 

Before his public apology, he posted a video after his original video about Gayle saying he never wanted harm to come to Gayle and that he was raised better than that. 

 

"What do I look like, wanting some harm to come to a 70-year-old woman?," he said in the clip above. "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.'"
