"You want to know why Kobe Bryant is a hero?” McGowan tweeted to her 900,000 followers on Monday. “He apologized to a hurt young woman. Snoop & others it’s time to stop terrorizing [Gayle King] and [Felicia Sonmez]. Truth hurts. Death hurts. Grow the f--- up. Kobe stopped hurting women, so can you.”

"When I said what I said, I spoke for the people who felt like Gayle was very disrespectful towards Kobe Bryant and his family," Snoop Dogg said in a video on Instagram.
"Now with that being said, what do I look like, wanting some harm to come to a 70-year-old woman? I was raised way better than that," the 48-year-old entertainer said. "I don’t want no harm to come to her, and I didn’t threaten her. All I did was say, 'Check it out. You out of pocket for what you doing, and we watching you. Have a little bit more respect for Vanessa [Bryant], her babies and Kobe Bryant’s legacy.'"
“This is despicable,” Rice wrote. “Gayle King is one of the most principled, fair and tough journalists alive. Snoop, back the **** off. You come for @GayleKing, you come against an army. You will lose, and it won’t be pretty.”
