Snoop Dogg Set for First Interview With Jada Pinkett Following Gayle King and Kobe Bryant Controversy

It's been announced that Snoop Dogg will sit down with Jada Pinkett Smith on the Red Table Talk show for his first interview since the controversy between himself and Gayle King over Kobe Bryant's legacy. King came under fire for questioning WNBA star Lisa Leslie about Bryant's past sexual assault allegations in an interview, following the basketball icon's death.

Snoop was one of the most outspoken critics of King's line of questioning, threatening the daytime news anchor in a series of video. He eventually apologized for his comments, and it has been presumed that things between the two of them are civil.

In a post on Instagram, Smith announced the news of Snoop's appearance, writing: "Snoop Dogg is coming to [Red Table Talk] Wednesday, February 26th to have an in-depth and insightful conversation about The Culture of Disrespect Between Black Men and Black Women. Join us."

"I hope you ladies didn't take it easy on him. I understand and completely agree with forgiveness, but when someone is constantly disrespecting women of color or women in general and apologize each time are they really sorry or are they trying to keep their image intact," wrote a fifth follower."
