Gayle King Blindsided by Kobe Bryant Clip


This week Gayle King faced furious backlash for bringing up Kobe Bryant's 2003 rape accusation during an interview with Kobe's long time friend Lisa Leslie.

Now Gayle is accusing her network of causing the controversy by sharing the clip out of context...

In a post on Instagram Gayle says she understands the backlash and claims the clip was a very small part of a long ranging interview and that she felt Lisa's answer, that the media should be respectful at this time, was important. Gayle also accuses her network of blindsiding her with the out of context clip and then telling her not to speak about it.

The put up the content you gave them Gayle... smh. You asked the question, so there it is. Still waiting on you and O to have that same energy for y'll buddy Harvey.

Bitch please, get the entire fuck on.

I know journalist have a job and that's to get those tough questions answered. However, did she really have to go there at this moment?
My wish is that Gayle and Oprah would have the same integrity to their job concerning all white rapist they are connected to as well. They won't speak on that tho. They won't interview those particular women or bring stuff concerning them in interviews. This interview should have been and stayed focus on Lisa. For her own personal gain, Gayle attempted to back her in a corner. Journalism should be knowing when the time is right to go after a story. They (Oprah and co.) use Gayle for their dirty work.

Furthermore, Gayle didn't "earn" that seat. She has her position based upon affiliation. Screw this trick!

You have to be a total POS to bring up that FALSE ALLEGATION period. But to do it right after he passed away as an attempt to tarnish his reputation is beyond wrong. He did not rape that hoe that had the semen of OVER 5 MEN in her at the time. That's a fact that was proven so there is no need for any further conversation. Saying that his legacy is complicated because of someone that TRIED & FAILED to set him up for a payout is an untrue statement. Now if we said Gayle's whole career in journalism was a gift from Oprah for eating her box for the last 40 years...

Gayle and Oprah be on some old I hate Black Men shyt. They don’t seem to be to concerned about the ill doings of white boys. You have to ask yourself. What institution are they trying to preserve? FACTS

I cant stand this bitch. That was so disrespectful to Kobe's family as they are grieving. She got all that praise with theme R kelly interview. Bitch he as not going to hit you when he stood up. I'm not a fan of R Kelly but this bitch was praised for sitting while R Kelly stood up. I cant stand this Chewbacca bitch. I swear money is the root of all evil.

Gayle be trying to talk/sound like Oprah and everything. Damn G.

What’s with Oprah and Gayle wanting to destroy black men? They sure don’t have the same energy towards the white men that have been exposed. I guess they don’t want to rock the boat.

Blindsided? You know what you asked and what you were going to ask, before the interview. Stop acting like you had no idea. What was the relevance of asking Lisa about that in the first place.

Anonymous said...

9:06 I don't think she's trying.. they do sound just alike. They've been together so long.

Stedman is a well paid beard. Everyone else gets praised for coming out I wonder when will Gayle and Oprah do the same? On another note, I guess what's understood doesn't have to be explained.

Monique said...

Gayle you should be ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!!! You are so fucking PHONEY. WHY DIDN'T YOU ASK KOBE THE ? WHEN HE WAS ALIVE. GO ON A DIET FAT BITCH!!

NiyabinghiWerewolfObeahWoman said...

This raggedy bitch deserves to be dragged for filth. Is this paid piece of Oprah even a real journalist? of was put on by her rich ass girlfriend who took her from her husband. This trick has no legs to stand on. I can't stand agents tools of white supremacy, GTFOH here "Gail"!!!

Lets just cancel these 2 bitches and every thing that they are apart of. I am over these two lesbians. Gayle hates men because her husband cheated on her and Oprah hates men because she was molested by them and I get it but, to come for ONLY black man is just doing to much. They can both interview some white men like Harvey,President Dump, Einstein family, Charlie Sheen on his spreading HIV knowingly, I can go on and on. I am so sick of these two ass kissing black man hating lesbian. I wish they will come out and set weak ass Stedman free so he can stop being a beard. #canceloprahandgayle

Fuck Oprah and her girlfriend

It wasn't a false accusation. Kobe admitted that he had sex with that woman.
He paid her off and she refused to testify.
That being said, it was a long time ago, his wife seems to have forgiven him and he has pretty much stayed out of trouble since. It was very distasteful to bring that up at this time.
But what all this has to do with Harvey Weinstein, I fail to see the correlation. Those two situations are so drastically different.
Why do people keep comparing his situation to that mess? Disrespectful A.F!!!
Y'all the ones that should be ashamed!

Anonymous said...

Dead or alive the truth is, Kobe raped that woman. Death doesn't change that fact. Men rape. Black men rape too. Why should anyone hide those facts.

Kirk Douglass died yesterday, 103 years old and was a known mutherfuckker in Hollywood. A known rapist too! Being an asswipe and a rapist is part of who he was as a man, why should anyone forget that?

MLK cheated on Coretta, why should I delete that from my memory. He was a fucking cheat. Image tarnished, he was a weak man but the figure head for a great cause.

When remembering a man, remember the WHOLE man!

So, when R. Kelly finally dies, wtf are you all gonna do, focus on the music only? No mutherfuckers, that piece of shit was a rapist!

Gayle asked all the questions, she knew she was out of pocket, if she don't now she does, her and O are selling their souls to the devil for real.....

Anonymous said...

Gail, I DON'T believe you!!! I saw the entire interview when it aired and I was mortified at the way you hammered Lisa Leslie. You hammered her and I didn't see the clip your network posted at all, I saw the interview. It was wrong and beyond insensitive. You started drinking the kool-aid and got a big head when everyone praised you for the R Kelly interview and now you're out of control with some faux power. Enough!

10:44 and 11:23, y'all must be on dope or dog food! Kobe had sex yes, but HE DID NOT RAPE THAT WOMAN. The ho was bragging to her friends about having sex with Kobe...she had several other men's semen in her cave woman ass body! Please GTFOH.

I'd like to see Gayle bring that same energy for Prince Andrew, Harvey Weinstein or that dude that throws yacht parties. In fact Gayle should interview Oprah school in Africa and talk about all abuse allegations.

Anonymous said...

Gail and her girlfriend Oprah are tools for white supremacy. When white folks are finish using Gail and Oprah up, they will break and discard them.
Gail and Oprah are filled with self-hatred, they want the love and acceptance from white folks.
We are still waiting on the hard hitting interviews with Harvey Weinstein, Steven Collins, Woody Allen, Rob Lowe, Matt Lauer, Steven Tyler, Prince Andrew, and Bryan Singer. See the pattern I could go and on.

In that 1st video Gayle looks like she slept in that ratty wig. All the money she makes for selling her soul you would think she would be wearing better looking wigs. I wish her and Oprah bad and hard times. Black folks keep your feet on her and Oprah's necks don't let up.
Don't let those bitches breathe.

@12:42

10:44 DID NOT SAY HE RAPED THAT WOMAN YOU DEGENERATE IMBECILE.

HE WAS CHARGED AND HE PAID HER OFF.

HOW YOU KNOW WHAT SHE WAS BRAGGING ABOUT CUNT, WAS SHE BRAGGING TO YOU?

I SPOKE FACTS: HE WAS CHARGED, HE SAID HE HAD SEX WITH HER (WHILE MARRIED TO ANOTHER WOMAN), AND HE PAID HER TO DROP THE CASE.

ANYTHING ELSE IS INNUENDO. DID THE HOE "BRAG" TO YOU AND YOUR HOE ASS FRIENDS?

THEN SHUT UP. SILLY ASS CLOWN.
YOU CLEARLY WOULD'T KNOW THE CONCEPT OF FACTS IF IT WAS BLOWING OUT YOUR DRY BACKSIDE.

It was a false rape accusation - the most famous athlete in the world has ONE allegation ONE!! But he's guilty? It's a false racist narrative that is being perpetuated by BLACK WOMEN. THE FUCK??

Anonymous said...

@ 1:38pm - this is not the person you're responding to BUT the Washington Post reporter was put on leave because she didn't report ALL of the facts. You're repeating the YT narrative which is racist. Where is the WHOLE story about the semen that was found inside of her by several other men. THAT'S why he was not convicted. Be sure you say IT ALL if you're going to be out here regurgitating the white mans scenario.

@ 1:38 pm And y'all wonder why black men call black women angry? THIS!

It was a false RAPE accusation. He was guilty of cheating on his wife. That is all. Her case went nowhere because of the DNA found inside of her.

You have no idea of what you are talking about. You said the allegations were not fake. The allegation was rape. So the other 6 dudes who's DNA was in her was consensual but the black NBA player raped her?? Yeah, ok. The allegation was false, the DNA proved that so IF Kobe paid her I don't know what the fuck for. Maybe you should do your research before you start talking "facts".

What proof do you have that Kobe paid the hoe? Did she show you the check? GTFOHWTBS

You need to STFU because you do not know what you are talking about. Why don't you put that phone to good use and look up shit before you try to speak on it.

Anonymous said...

Yes, he paid her off. Mind you this is 15-16 years ago, but one FACT that I read about was that they reached an agreement of around a million dollars or a bit more. I remember that story because the also in same article was that he had purchased his wife a 4 million dollar ring as an apology.
Also in the article was about how the woman had moved on in her life and was actually pregnant.
I know she was white. Before the ban was placed on the case, one newspaper had an actual picture of her.
I don't know everything, I wasn't there, but those are some bare, stark, recorded FACTS about that case.
All I'm saying is that one incident (that we know of) should not be compared to all of the heinous acts that Harvey Weinstien is accused of. I don't see why he has to be mentioned in the same sentence or paragraph. It's a disgrace.

@2:49 The fact is he was accused of rape. Only two people know if that happened or not, because it never got to as far as a trial.
You can't say it was false any quicker than you can call her a liar, because you weren't there.

Food for thought: Some say- if you lie you will cheat, if you cheat you can steal, if you steal you may kill.
He admitted to cheating on his wife. 'Nuff said.

Anonymous said...

We should also not forget the fact that Kobe apologized to the "alleged" victim in the case.
None of those other men have apologized for their alleged crimes and behaviors. He apologized, paid her off and everyone moved on. I wish this could stop being an issue.

Some of yall need to learn the difference between a CHARGE and a CONVICTION. I don't care about the details. The man is innocent until proven guilty and no one has been able to do that so it's a moot point and Gayle is a sell out.

Unknown said...

At this point who cares? Black men stay getting caught up with these white and Hispanic bitches which is why they need to tread fuckin lightly when they are in the spotlight. Because once you die the whole world will remember you by the fuck shit you did or got in trouble for. Soon as Kobe died white Muthafuckas went in on his rape case. Nobody said shit and now Gayle got caught up and Niggas is mad SMH

@2:45 Bytch you still MAD! Kobe chose to settle with that stringy haired neanderthal KATELYN FABER, because Vanessa had already miscarried and he didn't want the stress of the trial to cause more harm to his wife and family.

WHAT IF Gayle and Oprah are going after black men to keep their secrets from being released? Oprah been in the game a long time and up until recently it's been like she walks on water. It's probably about time she pays the Piper. All that success wasn't free. She took an oath and she's sticking to it.

I don't care for Gayle or Oprah. But that's what I think is going on. Oprah had to sacrifice her relationship with the black community.

...Gayle directly benefited from her relationship with Oprah she had to do the same.

gayle oprah azaelia banks.... all agents to promote a divide between black men and black women. its a psychological war on us as black people. they are trying to make men and women hate each other. u dont see this in the white community..

Well since Oprah and Gayle really don't care......
I will never tune into Gayle's show again and I am not watching OWN or purchase O magazine.....NEVER.......
This is the only thing women like this understand. They will FAKE apologize all day BUT sometimes you must make a bigger stand; loosing viewers is the ONLY things these two bitter old women will EVER understand!

I agree with you wholeheartedly. However, Gail should have had more decorum. Kobe's family is suffering---why bring up an old rape case to create more controversy? My thing is have respect for the grieving family.

Fuck Gail's man in drag ass and fuck Mammy Oprah! They stay protecting white people!
