The battle between President Trump and Snoop Dogg has expanded to include the First Lady and Bow Wow. The public back-and-forth between Trump and the two has-been rap artists stems from a recent scene in one of Snoop Dogg’s music videos. In it, the 45-year-old artist pulls a toy gun on a clown – made to look like Trump – before pulling the trigger (a cloth with “BANG” written on it unfurls from the weapon).
Nonetheless, Trump took issue with the scene Wednesday morning, tweeting, “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!”
Rapper Shad Moss – formerly known as Lil’ Bow Wow – produced a wildly inappropriate tweet Wednesday night that threatened U.S. President Donald Trump’s family. He first worked with Dogg at age 13 when he was known as Lil’ Bow Wow. His debut album “Beware of Dog” in 2000 featured the single “Bow Wow,” featuring Dogg.
“Ayo @realDonaldTrump shut your punk a– up talking s–t about my uncle @SnoopDogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us,” the rapper tweeted Wednesday afternoon.
Bow Wow joins a number of other celebrities who have jumped into the fray, including T.I. and Marco Rubio.
The video from Snoop Dogg elicited a lot of criticism including that of Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fl.), who is himself an avid rap listener, and Glenn Beck, who said the entire world would have been undone if anyone had done that to former President Obama.
