Snoop Dogg, is under fire after a gay slur was published on his Instagram and Twitter feeds.
A homophobic caption was uploaded to Snoop Dogg’s Instagram account this morning, before being deleted 40 minutes later. It has not been confirmed whether the rapper is responsible for the tweet.
The caption along with a photograph of two men in bed read: “U n ya boyfriend since u like Jumpn on my page disrespectn bitch boy go suck ya man n get off my line f.A. G.”
The picture and slur was shared with his 3.5 million followers on Instagram and 11.6 million fans on Twitter.
Two years ago, Snoop Dogg commended singer Frank Ocean when he came out, saying that Hip Hop was ready for a gay artist. However, in April, he doubted that homosexuality would be acceptable in the rap world saying, “It’s acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don’t know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine.
“It’s like a football team. You can’t be in a locker room full of motherf**king tough ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, ‘Hey, man, I like you’.
“You know… that’s going to be tough.”
