Bill Cosby: Gayle King Was Used To “Tarnish” Kobe Bryant’s Legacy

Broadcast journalist Gayle King has been receiving a lot of backlash after asking a question about Kobe Bryant’s 2003 sexual assault charge during a recent interview with WNBA star Lisa Leslie.

Several celebrities have expressed their disgust with King’s decision to rehash a case that was settled in 2005. 

Rappers Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Boosie Badazz have been some of the most vocal against King’s questions and comments regarding the case. 

Recently Bill Cosby voiced his disappointment with the interview also. The incarcerated comedian tweeted from behind bars that he feels it is sad that Black women are being used to target successful Black men. 

“It’s so sad and disappointing that successful Black Women are being used to tarnish the image and legacy of successful Black Men, even in death,” Cosby, 82, wrote. “Are these people that are in need of fame, ratings and/or money? On behalf of myself, Camille and my family, thank you, thank you and thank you. My heartfelt prayers are with Kobe and his family, as well as with Michael Jackson and his family. May their legacies live on forever.”

Cosby went on to add the hashtags #ThankYouSnoopDogg, #BetOnBlackLegacy, #StopTearingDownBlackMen, #EnoughIsEnough, #KobeLegacyLivesOn, #GiannaLegacyLivesOn, #MichaelJacksonLegacyLivesOn, and #BillCosbyFarFromFinished.

King responded to the backlash saying she was surprised and upset that her network released an “out-of-context” clip of her interview with Leslie. 

“I’ve been up reading the comments about the interview I did with Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant, and I know that if I had only seen the clip that you saw, I’d be extremely angry with me too,” King said in an Instagram video. “I am mortified. I am embarrassed and I am very angry.”

I agree with Mr. Cosby, women of colour are being used to tarnish black men. BUT when will the women of colour see it for themselves. I do hope that Ms. King didn’t mean to be malice with that interview, but if she did hopefully she will understand the day it comes back around to her.

First of all, Bill Cosby is the last person who should say anything about how Black women are tarnishing Black men, when HE is a Black man that wasn’t caring nothing about Black women. If he was so concerned about how Black women are being used, he would not have drugged women or cheated on Black women!!

Gail and Oprah wrong on so many levels. Why don’t they discuss all the mad shit white men do daily? Why are only black men on their radar to criticize, demean and destroy?!

Really talk all of this has to do with the FAKE WHITE JEWS from Russia and Turkey. I’m throw this out there. When David Chappelle has his show and David was bashing black culture. Bill Cosby and Oprah spoke out about it.

The real David Chappelle go ghost. Once this fake David Chappelle came back. They all got together and went after Bill Cosby. Check the time line if I’m wrong I’m wrong. But those fake ass Jews have been trying to still the black man identity since way back.
They use the gay agenda like Sean Combs and Sean Carter straight up gay men. Sold their souls ass and dick sucking mouths. To tell us they are black excellence. While these white fake ass Jews that would need a sunblock screen over. 1000 to live in the middle East. Laugh at us while they do Satan’s work.
We should know better and we could do better. But the live of money is evil and evil people live money. Gail and Oprah love money. So here we are there is an agenda against in black man. WAKE UP!

They have favors to fulfill…this is a , “though”, moment.
CBS fronted Gail OFF, as she alleges, and she so pissed and angry, then WALK.
They will use you again…
