Cosby posted the message on Instagram.
Snoop Dogg had called out journalist Gayle King for bringing up Kobe's sexual assault case and had taken to social media to express his opinion. According to XXLMag, he said: "Gayle King–out of pocket for that shit. Way out of pocket! What do you gain from that? I swear to God we the worst. We the fucking worst. We expect more from you, Gayle. Don't you hang out with Oprah? Why y'all attacking us? We your people. You ain't come after fucking Harvey Weinstein asking them dumb ass questions. I get sick of y'all. I wanna call you one. Is it okay if I call her one? Funky dog head bitch! How dare you try to tarnish my muthafuckin' homeboy's reputation, punk muthafucka? Respect the family and back off, bitch, before we come get you!"
Gayle King's action touched on sore nerves while people are still trying to cope with the loss of Kobe Bryant. Responding to his calling out Gayle King for dredging up Kobe's past, Bill Cosby took to Instagram to post a thank you message for Snoop Dogg.
On his Instagram post, he wrote: "Snoop - when they brought me to my gated community and placed me inside of my penthouse, they didn’t win nor did they silence me. 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. Are these people that 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 is currently serving his prison sentence after being found guilty of three counts of aggravated indecent assault. It is yet to be seen how Snoop responds to his message on social media in what is fast becoming a heated discussion.
