Snoop Dogg threatened CBS interviewer Gayle King for asking Lisa Leslie, a close friend of Kobe Bryant, about his rape trial in Colorado. Snoop told King to “Respect the family and back off — before we come get you.” He later walked back the online remarks, saying he wishes no harm to come to her.
McGowan said today that Bryant was a “hero” for apologizing for the Colorado incident.
“You want to know why Kobe Bryant is a hero? He apologized to a hurt young woman,” she wrote on Twitter early Sunday. “Truth hurts. Death hurts. Grow the f–k up. Kobe stopped hurting women, so can you,” McGowan wrote.
McGowan joins former national security adviser Susan Rice in condemning the Snoop Dogg remarks
McGowan was among those on the leading edge of the #MeToo movement, and has noted in the past that grieving for someone with a complicated past is “complex.”
