Gayle accepted the apology from the California rapper and spoke for the first time about his rant
Jada said in the promo: “When you first came out and you said what you said, you know in regards to Gayle, my heart dropped.
“I felt like not only were you talking to Gayle but you were talking to me. I was like oh no Snoop has now taken his power flow away from me, away from Willow, away from my mother.”
She went on: “…I was like if this is what’s happening. I was like not Snoop, right.
“And so that’s one of the reasons why I felt like I really wanted to have the conversation with you in the spirit of healing.”

This promo comes after the recent fallout between the rapper and the CBS This Morning anchor over an interview following the shocking death of Kobe Bryant.
Gayle had asked Kobe’s close friend Lisa Leslie about his 2003 sexual assault case.
After the interview aired Snoop Dogg went on a rant in his Instagram story saying: “You ain’t coming after f*****g Harvey Weinstein asking him dumb-a** questions. I get sick of you all…
“I wanna call you one … Funky, dog-haired b***h, how dare you try and tarnish my motherf*****g homeboy’s reputation, punk motherf****r.
“Respect the family and back off, b***h, before we come get you.”
Snoop’s social media rant followed an interview that the anchor of CBS This Morning, had about Bryant with Lisa Leslie, a former star player in women’s professional basketball
Snoop admitted he overreacted and acted disrespectful
Snoop has since apologized for his harsh criticism saying on social media: “Gayle King, I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off emotions… me being angry at questions that you asked.”
“I overreacted. Should have handled it way different than that. I was raised way better than that.
“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.
In turn, Gayle accepted the apology in a statement obtained by New York Magazine.
She said: “I accept the apology and understand the raw emotions caused by this tragic loss.”

“I’m deeply sorry that questions I asked added to that pain. That was never my intention.

“I don’t always get it perfect but I’m constantly striving to do it with compassion and integrity.”
