Nigerian Singer Davido, American Rappers Snoop dog and 50cents have slammed CBS “This morning “presenter Gayle King for referencing Kobe Bryant’s 2003 rape charge in the wake of his death during an interview with WNBA star Lisa Leslie.
The Celebrities who were left unimpressed after King asked Leslie, “It’s been said that his legacy is complicated because of a sexual assault charge. Is it complicated for you as a woman, as a WNBA player?”
“It’s not complicated for me at all,” Leslie replied. “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 was just never the person that I know.”
King responded, “But Lisa, you wouldn’t see it, though. As his friend, you wouldn’t see it.” Leslie replied, “And that’s possible. I just don’t believe that.”
King then asked if it’s “even a fair question to talk about” the case, “considering he’s no longer with us and that it was resolved,” or if it is “really part of his history.” Leslie suggested that the media “should be more respectful at this time.”
