It was an ironic turnout for Oprah Winfrey when she fell on stage while speaking about balance. Oprah lost her balance while addressing the audience at The Forum in Los Angeles. The media icon attributed her fall to the high heels she was wearing, terming them as ‘wrong shoes.’
Oprah is currently pursuing her 2020 Vision tour, which is centered on wellness. Going by what she was talking about before the unfortunate tumble, balance is a crucial aspect of wellness. Oprah is partnering with weight watchers who feel 2020 is their renewal year.
While the TV host’s tumble is an unfortunate occurrence, some celebrities dropped comments making fun of her. Snoop Dogg is probably holding onto the grudge with Oprah’s best friend, Gayle King. Snoop recently caused a stir when he threatened Gayle King over her question regarding Kobe’s legacy.
In an interview with Lisa Leslie, the WNBA star, King sought to know if Kobe Bryant’s legacy had been affected by the rape allegations leveled against him in 2003. King’s interview video, which CBS News released, attracted a controversy, although Snoop later apologized to her.
Although Gayle King may have been insensitive with her questions regarding Kobe’s Bryant, the reaction received was as well unnecessary. Stars came out to blast the TV host, although her close friends, including Oprah, were there to fight for her.
Oprah was so affected with the harshness and threats issued to King, and even became emotional on the screens. Snoop Dogg’s reaction was deemed the most insensitive, although others such as Barry Bondz still dropped hurting comments, saying King should be ashamed of her words.

50 Cent was among the celebrities who dropped a reaction towards the video that went around social media platforms. He left a comment asking if Michael Jackson’s ghost had visited her. Snoop Dogg probably remembering Kobe added that the late celebrities might have blown a gust of wind towards her.
Michael Jackson passed on a couple of years ago, although Kobe’s memories are still fresh. The NBA legend died along with eight others earlier this year following the Calabasas helicopter crash.

Kobe Bryant had made a name for himself as a professional basketball player. However, he had a few questionable stories, with the 2003 rape allegations being the most touching. His fans, family, and friends are still mourning his demise, with a memorial service that recently happened. Beyoncé, who was a close friend to Kobe and his family, was among celebrities who uniquely honored the fallen star.
The rape allegations were allegedly dismissed in 2004 when the complainant failed to testify in court. They, however, settled the matter out of court the following year.
