I understand not wanting to speak ill of the dead, but the evidence was very, very strong that there was forced nonconsensual sex [i.e. rape] and Kobe almost certainly avoided jail time because he was rich, powerful, and able to hire lawyers who were willing to play dirty. As he was one of the top professional athletes in the world when this happened, it raises all sorts of questions about the power and privilege of celebrity. Like it or not, it's part of Kobe's life story and needs to be discussed.

Justice must be served to all, including the dead. It will allow Kobe's rep to be cleared if priced untrue and will allow possible victims, if alive, to move on with their lives.

I think you need to watch the interview first, and then comment here. What caused the rants from the celebrity community was not the fact that she brought up this issue. Her questioning line kept pushing, and pushing as if she wasn't getting the answer she needed. Watch it if you haven't yet, and see if you wouldn't feel how petty she was being. i guess that's what annoyed the Doggy Dog and Co.

Gayle King is a legend in her own mind.

The message is clear. Its OK to rape, then harass your victim until she eventually accepts a large cash payment to keep your illustrious basketball career on track.

Metoo.....??

If you don't want people bringing up rape allegations, don't rape people. It's really not a difficult concept.

Attacks on the press, their right to report the truth are becoming all too common in Donny's America.

There's a time and place for that and Gayle was way out of line.

She certainly shouldn't have gotten death threats but she should have not kept pushing those inappropriate questions to someone who was only a friend to Kobe.

The Left eating their own, I love it.

Gayle King is protected by Oprah at all time. Thus the threat from Susan Rice, ex National Security Adviser. I wonder who is this "army" she speaks of.

Oh, I definitely am with you on that.
