Snoop Dogg’s Latest Music Video Offends President Trump
OBy Ben Acker
Donald Trump has recently targeted Snoop Dogg for his recent music video, which is a remix of BADBADNOTGOOD’s Lavender. The remix itself isn’t the issue, it was the visuals. The video depicts a somewhat typical day, but everyone is a clown, including the president. But the part of the video Trump took offense to, depicts Snoop Dogg, firing a toy gun at a clown who is supposed to look like Trump.Trump took to twitter soon after he heard news of this video and replied.
“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!”
The clown, who the makers of the video call “Ronald Klump” was obviously not actually shot. There was even an old “BANG!” flag to accompany the gun shot, and later in the video, it is revealed that the clown who was “shot” was not actually harmed. Snoop Dogg responded to Trump’s jail comments in a video on Instagram, stating;
“Now ya’ll want to ask me questions and interview me but guess what, I’ve got nothing to say mate.”
The rapper hasn’t made any further public statements about the video, and neither has President Trump.
Sophomore Jon P. Said: “I think Trump is seriously over-reacting. Snoop Dogg isn’t threatening his life or anything, it was a clown, and the gun and “Bang” weren’t real.”
