Republicans are furious over Snoop Dogg’s latest video, “Lavender.” In the music video, directed by Jesse Wellens and James DeFina, Snoop stars alongside Michael Rapaport. The video sheds light on police brutality and corruption.

The video also features Donald Trump’s doppelgänger dressed as a clown. At one point in the video, Trump’s doppelgänger threatens to deport all dogs. The video’s controversial moment occurs when Snoop aims a gun at the fake version of Trump. Snoop pulls the trigger and the “Bang” flag protrudes from the fake gun.

Snoop revealed why he used art to attack Trump who has caused chaos in Washington and across the nation since he became president in January.

“It’s a lot of clown s— going on that we could just sit and talk on the phone all day about, but it’s a few issues that we really wanted to lock into [for the video] like police, the president and just life in general,” Snoop told Billboard.

But while Snoop desired to make a powerful statement about Trump’s polarizing time in office, several conservatives were upset over the video depiction.

    That’s his feelings he has the right to express his feelings just like Donald Trump express his feelings about women and everything else when he tweets. Besides expressing feeling is just like having an opinion and we all have one.

    The RO article posts all those anti-Snoop Tweets. That’s not representative of what people were saying. I saw gazillions of social media comments that were pro-Snoop. Get off Snoop. He’s an artist and has made many other “offensive” videos. Spend the time holding Trump accountable. He still hasn’t shown any evidence that Obama wiretapped him. His lying is an impeachable offense.

    I guess Snoop knows his audience …
