After the clip went viral, King insisted that CBS promoted the interview with a clip that was taken "out of context".

King said Thursday that although she did address the 2003 case, the "wide-ranging" interview covered topics including his career, his passion, his sense of humour and his life after basketball.

CBS released an excerpt to promote King's interview with Leslie. Gayle has since apologized for her comments, admitting she's "mortified" by the response and explaining that the clip was "taken out of context".

'She is not doing well. The vast majority of the interview was about the legacy of Kobe Bryant in light of his death. 'We are a country where differences of opinion are welcome, but hateful and risky threats are completely unacceptable'.

King did not appear on "CBS This Morning" on Friday. As King continued to press her on the topic, Leslie remained calm, saying, "I just never have ever seen him being the kind of person that would do something to violate a woman or be aggressive in that way". "This is unacceptable. We must do better".

The interview reportedly prompted death threats against King, according to Oprah. "Gayle is one of the most thoughtful people in our business". As for King's interview, everyone agreed the questions were out of line. King asked Leslie in the interview.

"As journalists, we often have to ask tough and uncomfortable questions". The late Lakers legend was accused of rape in 2003 by a 19-year old woman in Colorado.
