'Two wrongs don't make no right. When you're wrong, you gotta fix it'

Rapper Snoop Dogg apologized on Wednesday for an obscenity-laced tirade in which he appeared to threaten CBS news anchor Gayle King over an interview with former women's basketball star Lisa Leslie which referenced a 2003 sexual abuse allegation against Bryant.

"Two wrongs don't make no right. When you're wrong, you gotta fix it," Snoop Dogg said in an Instagram video apologizing for his outburst.

"So with that being said, Gayle 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 Dogg said, adding that he "overreacted" to the interview.

"I 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.'

"A lot of people look up to me and they love me ... so I want to let them know that anytime you mess up, it's okay to fix it, it's okay to man up and say that you're wrong," he said.

After her interview, King received multiple death threats, according to her good friend, media mega-star Oprah Winfrey.
