R. Kelly's alleged victim calls heated CBS interview an act

Robin Roberts faced criticism after her interview with Jussie Smollett on February 14 about the alleged hate crime committed against him in Chicago.

More portions of Kelly's emotional interview with King are scheduled to air as part of an hourlong special that begins at 7 p.m. Friday on CBS.

Watters apologized a second time later in the show with a note on a whiteboard, "I'm sorry Gayle + Robin".

Roberts, 58, was actually the one to interview Smollett days before police accused him of staging his alleged attack. She revealed to Colbert that she even got a personal phone call from Elton John just before going onstage at The Late Show.

"You've gotten a lot of praise for this across the board, from fellow journalists as well".

A panelist immediately corrected Watters, saying that it was not King but Roberts who did the interview.

"I couldn't believe it", King told Colbert, laughing. "I never thought that he was going to hurt me or hit me", she said, at least not on goal.

During her appearance on Colbert, King said she did not watch the show but that friends told her about Watters' mistake.

"Yes", King said with a laugh.

Reacting to Gayle King's interview with Kelly in separate interviews, all three accusers said they'd seen that pattern of "rage" before. Dana Parino corrected him, which made King email her.

"Dana stood up for me and said, 'That wasn't Robin Roberts, that was Gayle King.' So I emailed Dana who I don't know and I said, 'Hi, just wanted to thank you for letting your colleague know that Robin Roberts and I-it was a great compliment, but thank you for letting him know that we're two different people, '" King said.

"I thought, if I just sit there quietly, looking at him, he would know I'm not going anywhere and I'll just wait for you to finish whatever this is and then you'll sit back down in the seat".

"And can you let the rest of your colleagues know that all black people don't look alike?" she added. Instead, she said, "I thought we were witnessing the self-destruction of a man having a breakdown, and that's never a good thing to see".
