Snoop Dogg Shoots 'Clown' POTUS in New Video


Snoop Dogg has made his dislike of President Trump pretty obvious.

But some say a scene in his new video has gone a step too far.

In the music video for 'Lavender,' a remix featuring BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada, which will be featured on Snoop Dogg's upcoming album, there's a scene in which Snoop Dogg points a gun at the head of a clown dressed like President Trump.

When he pulls the trigger, a flag with the word 'Bang' shoots out of the barrel.

In an interview with Billboard Magazine, Snoop says he has a lot of complaints about President Trump and other things, including: 

"The ban that this motherf**er tried to put up; his winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherf**kers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years.

The whole world is clowning around. The concept is right on point, because if you really look at some of these motherf**kers, they are clowns."

The video's director says it was initially inspired by the shooting of Philando Castile last July.

Castile was shot by a police officer in Minnesota after being pulled over.  When Castile was asked for his license and registration he told police that he was licensed to carry a weapon and that he had one in his pocket.  His girlfriend says as he reached for his ID, police shot him seven times, she then live-streamed a video on Facebook in the aftermath of the shooting.

Snoop Dogg says he is not worried about what critics might say about the shooting scene:

"When I be putting sh*t out, I don’t ever expect or look for a reaction. I just put it out because I feel like it’s something that’s missing. Any time I drop something, I’m trying to fill in a void. I feel like it’s a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f**king clown as president, and the sh*t that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.”
