LOS ANGELES – Okay, this time Snoop Dogg… er… Snoop Lion has gone too damn far. In showing disapprobation for Republican candidate Mitt Romney, Snoop posted a “Why I’m Not Voting for Romney” list on his Instagram page after the presidential debate. The reasons include “He’s a white n**ga” … and “He’s a ho.”
Snoop also mentions, “he always interrupts and talks over people like he’s better than them,” and“This mutherf***’s name is Mitt.”
He then threatens Romney in proclaiming, “B*tch, I will beat the sh*t out of you.”
Not sure which is worse.
The items on Snoop’s list or the thousands of people who have publicly endorsed it.
To compound matters, Snoop posted 10 reasons to vote for President Barack Obama. Among the items on the list are Michelle Obama has a “fat ass” and “he’s BFFs with Jay-Z and Beyonce (he’s hugged Beyonce before and sniffed her neck).”
Those are not misprints.
Snoop had the audacity to make a coarse remark about the first lady’s posterior before inculpating the president with fatuous charges of seducing Beyonce.
The Dogfather is obviously smoking too much weed.
Look, there’s nothing wrong with entertainers concocting a political statement. Actually it’s becoming trendy. Rapper Lupe Fiasco got into a recent Twitter war with comic D.L. Hughley who refuses to vote.
A few weeks ago, hip hop mogul Jay-Z raised over $4 million for Obama’s campaign by hosting a fundraising dinner at $40,000 a plate. Still no word on if the entree included a house and flat screen TV.
And, of course, ‘American Idol’ judge Nicki Minaj shocked the rap world by uttering political lyrics in support of Romney. At one point, she even mentioned the Republican candidate had her vote.
Like I said, there’s nothing wrong with rappers getting involved. But there’s a dignified way of doing things. Complimenting the first lady’s buttocks and accusing the president of infidelity only strips away credibility.
