Gayle King has accepted Snoop Dogg‘s apology and she’s offering a sincere apology of her own.
Snoop took to social media after a discussion with his mother and said:
Two wrongs don’t make no right. When you’re wrong, you gotta fix it.
With that being said, 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. I overreacted.
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.
I didn’t mean for it to be like that. I was just expressing myself for a friend that wasn’t here to defend himself.
A lot of people look up to me and they love me and they appreciate me, so I want to let them know that anytime you mess up, it’s okay to fix it, it’s okay to man up and say that you’re wrong. I apologize. Hopefully we can sit down and talk privately. Have a good day.

In a statement to “Entertainment Tonight,” Gayle said:
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.
Hopefully, Gayle has offered a direct apology to Kobe Bryant‘s family.
