Two wrongs don’t make a right.

That’s the lesson that pushed Snoop Dogg to apologize to Gayle King after his not-so-friendly reaction to her Kobe Bryant interview with former WNBA star Lisa Leslie. The rapper shared a video, which received quite a bit of praise from his celebrity followers, to publicly apologize to the CBS This Morning reporter on Wednesday.

Snoop captioned the video: “Had a talk with my momma thank u mamma __ 2 wrongs don’t make it right time to heal ___@gayleking Peace ☮️ n love Praying for u and your family as well as Vanessa and the kids __”

He began the video by explaining exactly why his initial video, in which he called King out several times, was inappropriate.

"Two wrongs don't make no right. When you're wrong, you gotta fix it," he said to the public before addressing King."I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off of emotions... me being angry at questions that you asked."

Snoop’s message continued with him talking about his raising in relation to how he “overreacted.”

"[I] should have handled it differently than that. I was raised way better than that," the 48-year-old said. "So, I would like to apologize to you publicly for the language that I used and calling you out of your name and just being disrespectful. I didn't mean for it to be like that."

Furthermore, he gave a message to his viewers.

"It's OK to man up and say that you're wrong, " he said before telling King his hopes that they can "sit down and talk privately" one day.

Many of the “Beautiful” artist’s celebrity friends commended him for his accountability underneath the post.

“Big love bro,” Jamie Foxx commented. “We all know where [your] heart is. Your real day ones the [expletive] that knew you back at VIP records in Long Beach... we love u dog”

Lena Waithe added: “Proud of you for doing this!”

In addition, Jemele Hill wrote Snoop a lengthy message in the comment section.

“Snoop, thank you so much for doing this,” the journalist said. “Knowing the way you move, I knew what you said was out of character and coming from a place of hurt. None of us are perfect, but it’s helpful if we find a way to correct or dialogue with each other without it resorting to something that potentially causes harm. I fully expect there will be people who will say you have nothing to apologize for, but those people don’t understand the level of vitriol directed at black women social media. I knew you wouldn’t want any part of that.”

Singer Stephanie Mills also chimed in by telling him that she was proud and “I ride with you.”

Rapper MC Lyte also showed support for the “Gin and Juice” artist and his mother.

MC Lyte wrote: “I commend you my brother @snoopdogg Courageous, loving and kind is who I know you to be, even in the face of aggravation. And this is why we love you___ and Mama Snoop toooooo”

As International Business Times previously reported, the backlash against King started when a clip of her recent interview with Leslie, who was a close friend of Bryant’s, showed her bringing up his 2003 rape charge. 

Many fans, including rappers Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent were outraged by the clip. As a result, King later shared a video explaining that her questions were taken out of context.

"I know that if I had only seen the clip that you saw, I'd be extremely angry with me too,” King said. “I am mortified, I am embarrassed, and I am very angry."

The journalist has not yet responded to Snoop’s apology.
