Not sure if you’ve heard about Gayle King but she did an interview with former WNBA player Lisa Leslie about Kobe Bryant. In the interview she asked her very tough questions about Kobe and the sexual assault allegations. The video showed her asking Lisa if she ever felt like her friendship with Kobe was complicated because of that. Lisa gave a great answer and said no, and then Gayle King questioned her again saying something like “are you sure about that?” CBS does what all other news stations do and they crop the interview to find the juiciest pieces and create a narrative that gets likes, comments and a reaction. This was her first ever Instagram video and you can tell that she’s very angry with CBS.
Speaking of Kobe, his daughter Gianna’s #2 jersey was retired at a ceremony at the school she went to. Kobe’s wife Victoria wrote “My Gianna, God I miss you. I’ve been so lucky to have woken up to see your gorgeous face and amazing smile for 13 year. Wish it would’ve been until my last breath.” On Wednesday she posted a picture of Kobe on Instagram saying how much she missed him.
A distraught mom wrote a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, because her daughter has the name that shall not be spoken (Alexa). In the letter she says that the virtual assistant has affected her daughter’s interactions at school. “Mr. Bezos, I write to you as a father and human being rather than the CEO of Amazon. We are not asking for wealth or recognition from this request. We just want to correct an error we believe was a giant mistake.” According to the letter, the kids at her school boss her around as if she is the virtual assistant saying things like “turn on my TV” and “tell me today’s weather.” They laugh at her and treat her like a servant. The girl is ONLY 6. The mother is asking Jeff to make an apology and start a movement. The Seattle Times actually wrote an article about four women who were considering changing their names because they were fed up with the jokes. Is there anyone else out there with the same problem??
