CBS News President Susan Zirinsky has addressed the fallout from Gayle Kings interview about Kobe Bryant, calling threats against the CBS This Morning co-anchor reprehensible.
We fully support Gayle King and her integrity as a journalist, Zirinsky told the Associated Press Saturday. We find the threats against her or any journalist doing their job reprehensible.
Zirinskys comments came one day after Oprah Winfrey, revealed in an interview that King is not doing well.
She now has death threats and has to now travel with security, Winfrey told Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager on the Today show.
Among the critics were rapper Snoop Dogg, who posted a profanity-filled video on social media earlier this week warning King to back off b**ch before we come get you.
However, the rapper walked back his comments today in a new video on Instagram.
Im a non-violent person. When I said what I said, I spoke for the people who felt like Gayle was very disrespectful towards Kobe Bryant and his family. Now with that being said, what do I look like wanting some harm to come to a 70-year-old woman? I was raised way better than that, Snoop Dogg said. [It should be noted that King is actually 65 years old].
The rapper went on to insist he never threatened King.
I didnt threaten her. All I did was said, Check it out. Youre out of pocket for what youre doing and were watching you,' he added. Were very non-violent. We just want to say that first and foremost, we speak from the heart. Some of you who have no heart dont understand that.

For those of you criticizing @GayleKing, go watch her full interview.
For many of you, check your misogyny.
For those threatening her and inciting violence, stop it immediately.
This is unacceptable. We must do better.— Cory Booker (@CoryBooker) February 7, 2020
Time to make the donuts.
But threats against Trump are A OK
Gayle is fat Oprah’s lesbian lover... attacking her is a no-no.
Snoop is a bully thug who needs his posse behind him. One on one without his gang.....I’d cripple him. (got that from the funny bruce lee scene with brad pitt in the Hollywood movie)
Give me a break.
King is where she is because she's Oprah's BFF, and probably much more. Period. She is a journalist as much as Stephanopolous is, who was a Clinton flunky but somehow managed to get a gig on ABC.
That being said, Snoop Dogg backed down because obviously Susan Rice and her Deep State minions still have some pull in this country.
Give me a damn break, Snoop Dogg.
You most certainly did threaten her....
Back off, B!tch, before we come get you.
The Dogg pooped and now he has to eat it. lol
They stick together like EFFIN gorilla glue!! Pay attention republicans!!
Some Black Lives Matter more than others...
Meanwhile, in Chicago...
yeah that’s about as threatening as a threat gets.
Every once in a great while a liberal speaks the truth, like about Kobes sexual assault. This pisses off other liberals more than anything else.
President Trump has pointed this fact out on numerous occasions over the course of his primary and his presidency.
Once Ryan and his ilk bailed the remaining House pubbies got on the same page as our President and the Freedom Caucus.
The Senate? Not so much. Some in the pubbie Senate are still like herding cats. Then there’s Romney. His sole purpose is to be gravel in the gears.
They can ALL lay in their sh*t. They need to all need to not tread on us with their sh*t.
Well that wasn't as much fun as I thought it was going to be.
Interesting that they don’t quote either King’s or Dogg’s words.
Just for the record, what was it King said and what was it Dogg said?
