After calling Gayle King a “funky dog head b–ch” over her interview about the late Kobe Bryant, Snoop Dogg is set to address the controversy on Red Table Talk.
Snoop’s interview with Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow Smith and her mother, Adrienne Banfield Norris, has already been taped. It will debut on the Facebook series on Feb. 26, Pinkett Smith announced Friday.
The conversation will center on “the culture of disrespect between black men and black women,” she tweeted.

Snoop apologized to King on Feb. 12, saying he “overreacted” when he posted a profanity-filled video on Instagram warning her to “back off b–ch, before we come get you.”
The rapper and many of Bryant’s fans were upset that King asked Bryant’s friend, former WNBA star Lisa Leslie, about his “complicated” legacy, just days after he was killed in a helicopter crash.
King was referring to Bryant’s 2003 sexual assault case in Colorado. Bryant reached an out-of-court settlement with his accuser.

King’s best friend, Oprah Winfrey, said the CBS This Morning anchor began receiving death threats after CBS posted excerpts of the interview online.
CBS News President Susan Zirinsky called the threats against King “reprehensible.”
“We fully support Gayle King and her integrity as a journalist,” Zirinsky said earlier this month. “We find the threats against her or any journalist doing their job reprehensible.”
Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. on Jan. 26.
