CBS responds to Gayle King's outrage over viral Kobe clip

After being dragged by Black Twitter and multiple celebrities, Gayle King has chose to respond to the criticism behind her interview with WNBA legend Lisa Leslie.

In a statement to USA Today, Gayle responded to the flak she received after the interview aired. "That's simply not the individual that I do know".

"I have been with Kobe Bryant on many social occasions", King said. "He was very kind and very warm to me, and I felt that we had a friendly relationship".

King was slammed on social media by celebrities like 50 Cent and Vivica A. Fox for posing the question.

"I just don't believe that", she said. He said that Leslie tried to get King to back off with that line of questioning and nearly cried, but King kept digging, and Snoop said that's why he went in on her and he doesn't mind telling her she was wrong to her face. You ain't coming after f-king Harvey Weinstein asking him dumb-ass questions. Why you attacking us? After posting a foul-mouthed video criticizing the CBS journalist, he was accused of threatening King, something he now says he isn't capable of doing.

CBS News' Anthony Mason tweeted Sunday, "A word about my co-host @GayleKing who unjustly went through a rather rough week".

King sat down with retired WNBA star Lisa Leslie on Tuesday to talk about Bryant's legacy, according to CBS. The hip-hop veteran showed up to publish a very public announcement about the situation between him and the television personality Gayle king following a recent controversy Kobe Bryant comments.

On Jan. 26, Bryant died at the age of 41, along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other victims in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. It be out people to take us down. "You" re expense of what you're doing and also we're viewing you.Have a little extra regard forVanessa [Bryant, his widow], her infants and alsoKobeBryant's heritage". He ended the post with "Free Bill Cosby". But it's unfortunate that during this time of grieving, I think the timing of the interview totally was off.

"Here's a message for the people that need to know".

"Put an * next to a hero's name if they have sexual assault in their past", she wrote last week, saying the symbol, "says investigate further". "It'll be over in a couple of days.' But that's not good enough for me, because I want people to really understand what happened here and how I'm feeling about it".

CBS responded by agreeing that the excerpt "did not reflect the nature and tone" of the complete interview. Their spokesperson added that they "are addressing the internal process that led to this and changes have already been made".
