Snoop Dogg recently released a music video that would appear to assassinate the President of the United States. The odd thing is that no one’s batting an eye, but the Secret Service has announced that they are aware of the video. Dogg has criticized Trump since the beginning of his campaign for the presidency.
In his music video for Lavender, the rapper takes a gun, points it at a clown (clearly meant to be Trump) and shoots. When interviewed by Billboard, snoop claimed the following:
“Nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this (expletive) clown as president.”
His comment was referring to other rappers who have refused to make political statements and just write what Dogg calls “party music.”
But the music video didn’t just contain a picture of the President’s assassination. Snoop Dogg also talked about the travel ban and made fun of police while placing a huge emphasis on Black Lives Matter. In Dogg’s mind, it’s all ‘clown stuff’:
“It’s a lot of clown (stuff) going on that we could just sit and talk on the phone all day about, but it’s a few issues that we really wanted to lock into (for the video) like police, the president and just life in general.”
Snoop Dogg isn’t the only one standing up for this video either. Director Jesse Wellens told Billboard that the music video idea was birthed from the shooting of Philando Castile last year.
When asked about what his goal for the video was, Snoop Dogg responded with the following:
“[my focus was] making a song that was not controversial but real – real to the voice of the people who don’t have a voice.”
On Wednesday morning the President did respond via twitter and here is what he had to say:
Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!

With how similar this clown is to President Trump, it’s hard to ignore that fact that Snoop Dog is referring to President Trump in this video. What do you think about Snoop Doggs actions? Do you think people should be held accountable for these things?
