Gayle King has been receiving backlash ever since her interview with Lisa Leslie where she questioned the details surrounding the rape case that was brought against Kobe Bryant in 2003.

King’s longtime friend, Oprah Winfrey said King “is not doing well” and has received death threats following the interview going viral.

People have taken to social media to share their support for King with the hashtag, #IStandWithGayle.

Snoop Dogg who spoke out against King has since clarified his view points by saying he is non-violent and wants no harm to come to King, however he does want respect for Vanessa Bryant and her family during their grieving process.

King has yet to respond since her last video where she clarified what  happened during the interview.
