Opinions on Snoop Dogg's "Lavender" Run the Full Scale

by VVN Music

When Snoop Dogg pointed a fake confetti gun at an actor dressed as Donald Trump in clown makeup in his Lavender video, it was sure to create some controversy and TMZ has been hot on the trail of a number of people who have very diverse opinions.

Ice-T told TMZ "It's basically him saying everybody's a clown including Trump, which I think we all agree. The part where you point the gun at the president, that's against the law, you gotta know that. You can't kill the president, but he pushed the line and he had the edge right there."

Treach of Naughty by Nature added "And it was a confetti gun. Anybody got shot, confetti came out. It was artistic. I don't think it was threatening neither."

Then there is the politician side. TMZ talked with Senator Marco Rubio who told them "Snoop shouldn't have done that. We've had presidents assassinated in this country before so anything like that is really something we should be careful about."

The site also talked with Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, who was the most damning of the video.

It's totally disgraceful. Snoop owes the president an apology. There's absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a president, and I'm really shocked at him because I thought he was better than that.

If you have a protest, that's fine. Make a point. But he has to learn that they have to respect the office of the presidency ... Just because you want to hide behind the guise of artistic capabilities or artistic freedom of speech doesn't make it right, and Snoop knows that, and he played very close to the line here.

Shame on you, Snoop. You should be better than that, that's for sure.

Here is the full video, with very NSFW language, which includes a main role for actor Michael Rapaport.
