A ‘MORTIFIED’ GAYLE KING SPEAKS OUT, SAYS KOBE BRYANT CLIP WAS POSTED OUT OF CONTEXT BY NETWORK
Thursday, Feb 6, 2020

Gayle King is speaking out on the backlash received from her interview with Lisa Leslie about the late Kobe Bryant’s rise and legacy. In the wide-ranging interview, Gayle asks Lisa about Kobe Bryant’s alleged sexual assault charge.

“It’s been said that his legacy is complicated because of a sexual assault charge, which was dismissed in 2003, 2004. Is it complicated for you as a woman, as a WNBA player?” To which Leslie responded, “It’s not complicated for me at all. I just never have ever seen him being the kind of person that would do something to violate a woman or be aggressive in that way. That’s just not the person that I know.”

 

Gayle received a barrage of backlash who think her question was insensitive and ill-timed. She’s speaking out from her perspective and says the Network released the clip out of context unbeknowst to her.

“I’ve been up reading the comments about the interview I did with Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant. And I know that if I had only seen the clip that you saw, I’d be extremely angry with me too. I am mortified, I am embarrassed and I am very angry,” she said in an Instagram post. “Unbeknownst to me, my network put up a clip from a very wide-ranging interview, totally taken out of context, and when you see it that way, it’s very jarring.”
