Watch “Lavender” by BADBADNOTGOOD featuring Kaytranada & Snoop Dogg
BADBADNOTGOOD‘s video for “Lavender (Nightfall Remix)” is making Donald Trump supporters angry. The controversial clip shows Snoop Dogg point a gun at Donald Trump as if he’s going to assassinate him. You hear gun fire, but instead of seeing Trump die, a flag pops out of the gun that says “bang”. The act resembles something you’d see in an old cartoon.

However, the secret service is taking Snoop’s video completely serious. So is senator Marco Rubio who added “Snoop shouldn’t have done that“.
President Trump's personal lawyer on Snoop Dogg's video: "It's absolutely disgraceful" https://t.co/aiyfGdidGv

President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen called Snoop Dogg “absolutely disgraceful” for the music video and demanded Snoop offers Trump an apology.
It's just a prank bro @realDonaldTrump

“It’s just a prank bro,” music video director Jesse Wellens tweeted. He’s known for his 10,000,000+ subscriber YouTube channel “Prank Vs Prank“.
Ice-T and Treach of Naughty By Nature commented on the music video to TMZ. Ice-T said he was nervous watching and added “you can’t point a gun at the president”.
An apology from Snoop Dogg is unlikely. He opened up to Billboard about the video and continued to call Donald Trump a clown. He touched on the Muslim ban and expressed himself about black arrests for possession of Marijuana.
“When I be putting shit 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.”
“the ban that this motherf–ker tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherf–kers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and motherf–kers that’s not black on the streets making money off of it…”
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!
