Here is the exclusive video of Gayle that got Fox's reporter Jesse confused.
Jesse and his team were discussing the Rapper R.Kelly sexual assault and Pop star Michael Jackson's child harassment abuse allegations.
But reporter Jesse Watters got confused with the two African-American journalists during 'The Five' show and credited Robin Rene Roberts instead of Gayle King for the interview.
In the interview, Jesse gets mistaken with the two saying:
"Hats off to GayleKing for totally redeeming herself after the Smollett fiasco.."
The statement was instantly corrected by his Fox News teammate Dana Perini.
Dana Perino corrects Jesse:
"That was not Gayle King...Robin Roberts did the Smollett interview."
"I knew that."
The reporter covering his head in embarrassment.
"Sorry for Robin Roberts out there. I apologize."
Subsequently, in The Late Show, Stephen Colbert asked CBS anchor Gayle King about the ongoing rumors about her from the Fox show.
The 64-years-old journalist replied:
"So many people started sending this to me, I don't normally watch Fox news."
"I emailed Dana, who I don’t know, and I said, 'Hi, just wanted to thank you for letting your colleague know that … we are two different people. And could you let the rest of your colleagues know that all black people do not look alike? Could you please just share that?"
Jesse, later asked for an apology holding a whiteboard wring "I'm sorry Gayle + Robin" on Fox News.
