Snoop Dogg is getting some heat for his “Lavender (Nightfall Remix)” video which shows the Long Beach-bred rapper shooting a clown parody of president Donald Trump with a toy gun.
The Donald hasn’t responded to the video but a host of his friends are weighing in and are super critical. Republican Senator Marco Rubio told TMZ, “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.”
“I think people could disagree on policy,” he added. “But we gotta be careful with that kind of thing, because the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea, you can have a real problem. I’m not sure what Snoop was thinking. He should think about that a little.”
Donald Trump’s personal lawyer also chastised the west coast rap legend for the controversial video while appearing on TMZ Live on Tuesday (March 14). “It’s totally disgraceful. Snoop owes the president an apology,” said attorney Michael Cohen. “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.”
Snoop Dogg’s video for BADBADNOTGOOD and Kaytranada’s “Lavender (Nightfall Remix)” was directed by YouTube star Jesse Wellens, and also features actor Michael Rapaport in clown face being shot by clown cops.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Snoop Dogg said he wasn’t looking for controversy. “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,” he said. “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 shit 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.”

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!
Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…
Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.
If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.
So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
