CBS News anchor Gayle King has opened up once again about the backlash that she faced from Kobe Bryant fans over her controversial interview with WBNA star, Lisa Leslie.
King headed to her bestie, Oprah Winfrey’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus Tour, to speak about the incident and the lessons that she has learned.
“I have moved on. Is there a scab? Yeah. But I have moved on,” King said, according to PEOPLE.
“I put on my game face and my big girl pants because I never lost sight of who I was, what I believe I am, and my intention. I’ve never lost sight of that. But it certainly was a learning curve, and it was very painful,” King continued.
The journalist caught some heat after she pressed Leslie to speak about Bryant’s 2003 rape allegations less than a fortnight after Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and seven others died in a helicopter crash.
