Snoop Dogg, who is renowned for his hilarious Instagram rants, took to social media with an apologetic video aimed at Gayle King. Snoop Dogg said, "Two wrongs don't make no right. When you're wrong, you gotta fix it. 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. I overreacted. I should have handled it way different than that. I was raised better than that, so I would like to apologize to you publicly for that language that I used and calling you out of your name and just being disrespectful.”

Snoop Dogg admitted that he is a role model for people to look up to and he needs to behave accordingly. The hip-hop icon further added, "A lot of people look up to me and they love and they appreciate 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. Hopefully, one day we can talk privately."
