Rapper Snoop Dogg apologized again a week after his half-hearted apology to journalist Gayle King did not go over well.

The rapper called King a "b*tch" and encouraged his followers to send death threats to King, 65, after she asked former WNBA player Lisa Leslie to comment on Kobe Bryant's 2003 rape allegations.

Snoop Dogg's comments sparked a firestorm of controversy that ended with former President Barack Obama's White House advisor Susan Rice telling the rapper to "back the **** off" and threatening to send an army to gather him.

Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus, Jr., apologized in an Instagram video on Wednesday, claiming his mother made him see the error of his ways.

"Had a talk with my momma thank u mamma," he captioned the video. "2 wrongs don't make it right time to heal... @gayleking Peace... n love Praying for u and your family as well as Vanessa and the kids."

In the video, Snoop Dogg said, "I should have handled it way different than that, I was raised way better than that, so I would like to apologize publicly for the language that I used and calling you out your name and just being disrespectful," he said.

Snoop apologized again after his reality show co-host Martha Stewart commented on his disrespectful behavior this week.

The ongoing attacks on television journalist Gayle King sparked the hashtag #IStandWithGayle on Twitter.com on Sunday.

The drama started when CBS released a promo clip for King's interview with former WNBA star Lisa Leslie, 47.

King, 65, came under fire when she asked Leslie to comment on Kobe Bryant's 2003 rape allegation. Bryant, 41, died tragically with his daughter, Gianna, and seven others in a helicopter crash last month.

Bryant was accused of raping a 19-year-old desk clerk at a Colorado resort. The charges were dropped after the woman accepted an out-of-court settlement and refused to testify.

Bryant released a statement acknowledging he may have submitted the teenager to sexual activity without her consent.

Rapper Snoop Dogg incurred the wrath of intellectuals and women's rights advocates when he threatened King, which encouraged his followers to make death threats against King.

Snoop later backtracked, saying he meant no harm to King. Snoop, who was acquitted of murder, added he is "non-violent".

On Wednesday, Rich apologized to Tori, saying he was "under the influence" when he treated her like a human blow up doll on the red carpet.

In a photo caption, the 27-year-old rapper wrote:

"My life is everything with you & nothing without, I love you more than anything on earth I want to sincerely apologize for my behavior this weekend I was either drunk or high but that still does not excuse it. I would never disrespect my wife in any way or any day I can only treat with utmost respect for being the women Of my dreams & the best mother to our child."

Rich, who was born Dimitri Roger, is among hip-hop's sub genre of mumble rappers. He is best known for his hits "Plug Walk" and "New Freezer" off his debut album The World Is Yours.
