2. SOUNDBITE (English), 50 Cent, rapper/actor/TV executive, on TV news anchor Gayle King mentioning Kobe Bryant's rape allegation in an interview with former basketball star Lisa Leslie:
"I said I just didn't understand what the goal is at that point. 'Cause she knows what Kobe means to the actual culture at the same time. Like they know what Michael Jackson meant."
(Reporter: But, if somebody...)
"I just don't know what you're trying to do when the man is dead."

3. SOUNDBITE (English), 50 Cent, rapper/actor/TV executive, on TV news anchor Gayle King mentioning Kobe Bryant's rape allegation in an interview with former basketball star Lisa Leslie:
"If the system itself—the legal system—couldn't deal with it, what are you supposed to do: publicly convicted him? Is that the idea? Now, is it justice or is it revenge? At that point, right? You're talking to people who know him. He's a good person. What do you want to do about it? Now he's gone. Who can defend him at this point? It's all public opinion now. So no matter which way you look at it, I don't see what the goal is. I don't see how you can—everyone's greater in their absence than they are in their presence, right? So they're going to keep playing with people that are not here, and it's going to fuck them (reporters/people that mention the allegations) over. Because people are going to start to not like them in an intense way for doing that. It's just not the right thing to do."
