AceShowbiz - Jada Pinkett Smith's talk show "Red Table Talk" has always succeeded in garnering public attention by bringing the right guests amid hot topics. Recently, she invited rapper Snoop Dogg to discuss his controversial comments about Gayle King as he tried to "protect" Kobe Bryant's widow Vanessa Bryant.
After the episode aired, it soon made headlines. However, instead of compliments, Jada received harsh criticism over the interview because it seemed like people think that Jada cornered Snoop despite his apology. "jada you're out of pocket for this bs," one user wrote in the comment section while someone else added, "Jada this ain't it and you should do better for you black community."
One fan was saddened to see Snoop clarifying his comments all over again. "I would like to see [Oprah Winfrey] or Gayle at the table next... Snoop is being attacked!!! And he already apologizedm." Echoing the sentiment, one other shared, "It hurts me that he has to keep clarifying his hurt. I've been thinking for some days now how few safe places exist for men of color to be vulnerabgle and grieve without being judged or persecuted the I way snoop is."
"HE SAID WHAT HE SAID JADA !!" a supportive fan exclaimed. "It was never about anybody else, it was directed to that woman only," another explained.
During the interview, the rap veteran revealed that he went hard against Gayle for bringing up the late basketball icon's rape case during a chat with Kobe's friend and fellow athlete Lisa Leslie because he wanted to protect Vanessa. "I wanted to make sure what I said was said the right way and I wanted to make sure that the message was across. That we love Kobe and be respectful of Vanessa and those kids," he shared.
"That's what the whole intent was, to protect that women and them babies over there, because she's still grieving. And let's give them that respect (sic)," he added.
