Snoop Dogg has been under fire for his recent video “Lavender,” where he’s seen shooting a fake gun at a fake Donald Trump. The video ended up getting some heat from a few people in the Republican Party and the White House. Trump even briefly stopped his White House duties to speak about the video on Twitter.
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!

Some celebrities have weighed in already. Bow Wow recently, and now, Common is the latest to speak his peace on the situation.
TMZ caught up with the singer outside of his gym to ask about his take on it all. He says,
Meanwhile, Uncle Snoop has been quiet unbothered about all the drama that has unfolded. In an Instagram post, Snoop shares,
“Hip-hop always been about freedom of expression. That’s one of the most powerful things. Hip-hop has been like a voice for so many people… If you go think about the days of Public Enemy and you fast-forward to Kendrick Lamar, hip-hop artists have always been speaking up and saying what they feel. If it’s a president they don’t like, if it’s a politician they don’t like… if you didn’t like what was going on, you speak up and we’re entitled to do that as people.”
“They all want to ask me questions and interview me, but guess what? I’ve got nothing to say mate.”
