- Snoops music video shows him aiming a gun at a clown dressed as Trump
- It has sparked negative reactions online for its gun violence and message
- The mock assassination video has garnered 13 lakh views so far
Rapper Snoop Dogg has taken the Internet’s general dislike for US President Donald Trump to a whole new level. In a recently released music video to the soundtrack ‘Lavender’, the rapper aims a fake gun at a clown that resembles the POTUS. “This is the final call,” he says, pointing a gun at the clown, who is dressed as Trump and is smoking a cigarette. At the last moment, instead of a bullet, a flag bearing the word ‘Bang’ comes out of the gun.
The profanity-filled presidential assassination video has shocked netizens with its in-your-face violence.
Since being shared online one day ago, the video has garnered over 13 lakh views. Many, however, have condemned the video for its menacing violence and the message it conveys. Most agreed that it crossed a line. “I don’t know what is worse, the music or the message,” says one commenter on YouTube. Another comments, “It’s no matter your political affiliation, whether you are right, left, or neither: *Mock Killing the POTUS is not okay*”
On Twitter too, many called the rapper out for his mock assassination video. Check out what they had to say:

@SnoopDogg Assassination of @POTUS crosses a line of decency. Unacceptable. Maybe you should meet with him to see how you can help Americans
