Last week, Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow found themselves in national controversy when Snoop took shots at President Trump in BADBADNOTGOOD’s music video “Lavender.”  Of course, Trump has already responded with tweets of his own to Snoop but now Steve Harvey has weighed in on the controversy and he’s claiming that Snoop and Bow Wow need to respect Trump.

BADBADNOTGOOD dropped their video for “Lavender” last week and in the video, Snoop is an anchorman in a world full of people with faces painted like clowns, with one in particular dressed as Trump. Toward the end of the video, Snoop points a toy gun toward the Trump clown’s head and fires, releasing a flag under the gun that reads “BANG!”

Well, of course, Trump didn’t take kindly to the video and he demanded that Snoop apologize. That’s when Bow Wow jumped into the mix and sent a scathing tweet to Trump about him and claimed he’d pimp first lady Melania Trump.

Well, Steve Harvey recently weighed in on the controversy and explained that he thinks Snoop needs to be more careful about how he resists the Trump presidency. He also claimed that Snoop’s scenes in the video may inspire people to want to kill Trump.

“Where we have to be smart about this, young brothers and the people who are the truth tellers is the way that they will bend it and twist it. Here’s the problem, if something happens do you get brought in as the copycat version, the reason that spurred action? ‘Cuz there’s some idiot that’s sitting at his house that’s willing to carry this out. … And you don’t want to be tied to that,” Harvey said.

Harvey did add that he believes that Snoop has creative freedom to do what he wants. “He’s an artist. He has a right as an artist to do his art in any form,” Harvey said. However, Harvey then said that Snoop and others like him need to respect the office of the president.

“The problem with all this that there is an office in this country called the ‘president,’ and you have to respect the office. You really do. Whether you want to or not. You have to respect the office. They got laws … I would hate for anything to come down,” Harvey said.

The radio and TV host then turned his attention to Bow Wow and claimed that his tweets about the Trumps were disrespectful and dangerous.

“You start messing around with this man’s wife — who ain’t in this at all. The hell that comes down with messing with this man’s family, is great. Y’all got to be smart, man,” Harvey said.

Well, do you agree with Harvey or Snoop and Bow Wow? Let us know in the comments.

    Who does Steve Harvey think he is? Oh, he had a meeting with Trump to discuss him keeping him on as the host of Ms. UNIVERSE…just like Ed Lover said. .C’mon Son! Harvey is a sale out and cares nothing about anyone else but his own money. Listen we gave him a pass on the think like a man book. .but not this time, he has shown that he only cares about nobody but his money! I’m with Snoop and Bow Wow..Steve go sit your Country Sale out ass down somewhere!

  • CBaby23

    Seems like the hardest thing for pissed off people to do is listen to reason. But, Steve is right on point. There’s a way to do anything and putting your neck in the noose and waiting for somebody to hang you ain’t smart no matter how the hell you try to spin it. No matter how much people want to hate Trump, if they give two damns about Bow Wow or Snoop, they should give advice from their heads not their hatred. Doing anything that can be misconstrued in a way to give racist white folks a reason to come against black folk or their family, especially a LEGAL reason, is simply foolish. Cops are shooting us, beating us, MURDERING US on the daily without justification. So, now we’re going to give them an excuse? AND, on top of that, we’re going to egg Snoop and Bow Wow on until these fools show up at their doorsteps blasting, or stop them and their family as their driving along and next thing we hear is them or their loved ones are lying in the streets dead, or in the hospital fighting for their lives? Justifiably so, according to racist white folks laws? Really? That’s how we playing it now? But, Steve’s the coon, right? He’s the sellout? He’s the one who’s hurting the blacks by dealing with Trump? That’s how we spinning the story now? Oooookay.

    • S Bridgett

      I am glad that we didn’t think this way in the 50’s and 60’s there will always be a cost when you speak your mind. We stuck together and never would have said the things Harvey said. We have lived through hate like we are seeing again, we can’t cower in the corner and be silent!!!

    • guest

      I agree 100%

    • Chris Pitts Sr.

      So be very afraid? Speak your mind, it is 2017 and nobody is scared to speak up against Trump nor the police and injustice in any form. Snoop and Bow Wow are well within their right to speak negative about Trump and any-others they feel necessary to speak out against. If the oppressed did not speak up and fight we would still be not allowed in white restrooms, stop being so coonery in your thoughts when it comes to being fearful of talking against white men/society when they are clearly wrong.

      • Had Enough

Screw TRUMP he’s an a-hole, The bang was only a toy gun…they didn’t respect Obama on the platform when a white man called him a liar in front of the public..as for Trump .he got what s coming to him

    • Jaguar Rover

      your an A hole to ya know… what have you contributed so far?

      • Devon L Smith

        my contribution is your ignorance asshole

    • DreamofJeanie

      Exactly, Mr. Smith. I think Mr. Harvey should mind his business. I watched the video. By Mr Harvey pointing out what it could ‘incite’… HE could be inciting people to think that way. If he didn’t say anything – it’d just be a controversial video.
      Trump has made many people angry!
      Snoop Dog REALLY does donate to charities – unlike Trump who is only out for himself!

  • Joseph Dietz

    Harvey is a sellout, and we all know it.

  • DreMere Foxworth

    Steve is like a house slave he stands up for the white house owner. Steve is very out spoken and defensive when you speak about America president Trump.
    Steve is a masterful flip flop person between radio and television. He caters to his listening and TV viewers. Cause he is about his money first second and beyond.
    He will not mess with his white cash flow.

    • nosey rosy

      truely he is and he dont want to piss blacks off , like he has , the waters for him aint as deep as they can get , he need to chill , while he cautioning snoop dog he better caution his own self this is why he hired armed security around his mansion? and back peddling now to show lil white women who love him that he is a nice house boy really steve?
      its kind of to late to go back in the plantation if its on fire . i mean really .

    • joesandib

      House slave? What the hell do you know about slavery moron? You were brought into this country the same way I was, we were born here. Get off the slavery excuse band wagon, pull up your big boy pants and get a job.
      Steve Harvey, much respect Sir.

      • Lorenzo McGrew

        People kill me when they tell black people to get off the slavery thing, but they never tell the Jews to get over the Hollucust and it was only a 12 yr thing. Black people are the only race of people that have suffered for centruies, and still suffering from the dramatic effects of slavery right today. Black people are also the only race of people that haven’t been compensated for the termoil that our ansisters had to endure, unlike the Indians, at least they have received some type of reparation. If you have never been in a black person shoes never say get over slavery, because it takes a lot to fill those shoes.

        • Jaguar Rover

          sorry but the Holocaust was way worst..

          • Lorenzo McGrew

            The Holocaust was a very bad isolated incident that happen to a race of people by a very disturbed leader that killed over 6 million people. I sympathize with the Jews very much. Now with that being said there is no way that this isolated incident was worst then slavery which destroyed millions of lives and family’s and still affecting my black people to this day. There is no race of people who has suffered like black people.

          • DreamofJeanie

            Agreed. Two completely separate tragedies.
            Slavery was here!!! Native Americans slaughtered for their land we call America! We tore people away from families… to make them work & abuse them.. Mr. Lorenzo– dismiss the comments of those who are ignorant!

        • Had Enough

          “…..it takes a lot to fill those shoes…..”

          Yeah, a lot of shitte. Can’t be much of a “proud” people constantly begging, no, DEMANDING others throw them a pity party for an injustice that happened nearly TWO CENTURIES AGO!

          Reparations? Let’s see, 50+ years of welfare, section 8 housing, food stamps, Affirmative Action, Minority Only contracts, scholarships, business ventures, collages, grants, etc. Don’t you think that’s enough CONTINUOUS reparations? For something YOU DIDN’T EARN, but from sweat off your (supposedly) beloved ancestors brow? p.s. Can you even name them?

          Been free in a developed, first world country for generations and STILL can’t get your act together! Nor do you even WANT to! LOL, “proud people” my ass.

          • Lorenzo McGrew

            Alrighty then. First of all slavery hasn’t been over in over 200 plus years that is a lie. Second of all it was just done in a different form such as share cropping, and segregation which was suppose to be over in the 50s and 60s, but every black person in America knows that’s not true. But every race want to call black people lazy and don’t want to work, because we don’t pick cotton and work for free anymore (slavery). And that’s the misconception that whites have about blacks but it is so not true, but looking back on the European history and understanding how the so called white priveleage has became so far ahead of every other race is when your people came to America from Europe they could just place a claim on land and call it there’s so did your people really work for what they have I don’t think so. And if they didn’t not just get free land they took it by force so don’t give me that work hard bullshit because white privellage is still previlant right to this day. And yes I am a very proud strong, educated, employed, black business owner who is very proud of my race and love black people, because all we have been through we’re still here despite all the generations of hate and abuse we have endured.

          • Had Enough

            You just contradicted yourself, TWICE. You claim your people “are still slaves” but you feel everyone demeans black people because they don’t “work for free anymore (slavery)”. Then you claim to be an “employed” and “black business owner” – certainly NOT a slave!

            As for all your other pablum, that’s just racist teachings passed down from your parent(s), from their parent(s), from thei…………..

            Sell it to some SJW or other bleeding heart libtard – I’m no longer buying it.

          • Nubian Queen

            Waste of time to try to converse with an idiot. Dr. John Henrik Clarke said: “I only debate with my equals. All others, I teach.” He is NOT your equal, and he can’t be taught because of his overwhelming hatred and white supremacy attitude, so it’s a waste of time to even try! Everything you said is correct, and I commend you for not letting this system destroy you! Continue fighting the good fight! We need you.

      • jsing

        wtf do you mean by that? So if I wasn’t in Nazi Germany – I can’t speak on the holocaust? Slavery is a topic anyone can research and learn about. I know 45 doesn’t understand books but most of us do. What makes you think that the person you are speaking to doesn’t have a job? Because he differs in opinion from you? That some Chump supporter crap right there – get a job? – b—-itch I got a job and I can’t stand that MFing clown in the WH. Now what? You going to do something other than type? You get a job you boot licking tongue twisting uncle tom jiggaboo.

        • Had Enough

          Soooo, during YOUR research on slavery did you also notice the little tid bits about how slavery (in America) ENDED over 160+ years ago? Or how less than 1% of the entire country’s population even used slave labor? Slaves were very expensive to buy and keep, they were NOT brutalized and beaten, and rendered too sick or injured to work. However MORALLY WRONG slavery is, it was legal at that time. And plantation owners didn’t just go blindly running through the jungle rounding up stray natives – THEIR OWN PEOPLE SOLD THEM OUT! In addition, (an inconvenient truth) human trafficking never stopped in Africa and is still practiced there today! But I guess you already know all that through your studies.

          It beez 2017, git ovah it!

          • Nubian Queen

            Where the hell do you get that crap from? Do you even read? You can’t rewrite history! God, you’re ignorant!

          • nosey rosy

            HES RIGHT ,slaves were sold not stole , and we live with that ghost daily white folk are tired of us play the race card due to this this is why they dont feel bad about us coming here , they are made at their ancestors for buying slaves instead of working the land , why didnt they just pay the slaves? it would of made since why they had to own people hell slaves would have worked for 1 dollar a monthe back then and slave owners had plenty money , they were afraid of the slaves rebelling they had no security on those properties either

          • Nubian Queen

            You need to read more, from black scholars who have studied this whole slavery thing, because you are grossly misinformed if you truly believe that all those slaves were bought! Why would African leaders need to sell all their people if they had all the riches right there? Yes, a few chiefs, kings, whatever, sold some of their captives from wars they won, but only a few! The vast majority of the people kidnapped (yes, that’s the right word!) from Africa were NOT sold–they were “stole” as you put it!!! And to openly agree with a racist and say the other things you said is just really sad! Girl, do some work and educate yourself! Even if what he said was true, the fact you are agreeing with him really says something about your lack of self-worth as a black woman–if indeed, you are black. You sound like a troll–just like he is–always trolling black sites to spew their hatred. Sad.

  • nosey rosy

    we need to teach our children resilence , and humble, a lot of black boys have been killed for not showing restraint when they most needed to while dealing with racist whites cops, . snoop as old as he is need to think of his family first, theres some crazzzzzy asss trump supporters , they got him in now want to prove why . , racist whites need an agenda and trust me they will come after your income , endorsements and all ,snoop has a strong fan base but , his white fans may be trump supporters? so next time he make a financial move , it may hurt his pockets, we all love a out spoken leader but not this way . bow wow need to stop seeking kanye west fame . those days of shock are gone even kanye met with trump to show he dont feel trump is a george bush. well bush was a hidden racist big ass difference . hes from texas , texas white males are the worst racist in the world to deal with , because they will deny you jobs . and kill your family with no trace . no kidding . so summing it up , steve harvey made valid points but hes already a sellout to blacks so he is the wrong one to talk , he went to that white house to save his ms universe job. only NOT TO STOP POLICE BRUTALITY , OR DISCRIMATION IN HIRING BLACKS . steve is so dam fake,, JOBS? WHAT DAM JOBS, AND NOW THAT MEXICANS ARE SHAKEN TO THE CORE .. maybe blacks can get those jobs back .. so trump did do some good. he has open up america work force to jobs mexicans hogged up … but trump is still a racist man , with a racist agenda . hes afraid of blacks and he never had one black friend neither has his wife and kids. so no dam wonder the mexicans are do do;’ on any dark color person is underneath trump and his weird looking children

    • Nubian Queen

      Steve was right about his advice to them. Everything else you said takes away from that. Stick to the point at hand. That’s part of our problem now: too emotional, and now is the time where we must think and act rationally. Sorry, that’s the truth. Love my peeps, but we must do things differently now; it’s a whole new ballgame.

  • Anthony Pue

    Steve Harvey needs to stay in his lane and shut the hell up, I don’t see or hear Mr. Harvey asking Trump to apologize to President Obama for all the disrepect and lie’s he have told, SHUT THE HELL UP STEVE.

      THATS REAL , WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS BEING DISREPECTED WIFE GETTING DOGGED , NON OF THE BLACK TRUMP SUPPORTERS DID NOTHING AT ALL , WHY DIDNT THEY SPEAK TO WHITES WHOM BASHED THE FIRST LADY REGULARLY A LOT OF THEM LOST JOBS AT THE END OF OBAMAS TERM . AND WE GOT TO SEE WHAT MADE TRUMP WHEN .

  • ChaoticEnigma

    Respecting the office and respecting the man in it are two vastly different things, and I think Harvey may have lost sight of that. There is every reason under the sun to not respect Trump. He in less than a month has desecrated the office Harvey holds so dear. Steve, I don’t know whats gotten in to you, but respect is earned, you have shown that you no longer deserve any and Trump never has.

  • James Gunnings

    I can respect Mr.Harvey concern.But Trump says what he wants about who everer.So what.I don’t feel as though Snoop,or Bow Wow disrespect the presidency. They just disrespect Trump because he has no respect.

  • Mason Youngblood

    I hear something different than what a lot of you are hearing. I hear Steve Harvey trying to protect the brothers Snoop and Bow Wow rather than trying to take up for Trump. But see, we live in a world now that’s going down the tubes because of negativity and people’s willingness to attach themselves to negative thinking and surround themselves with negative thinking people. If you go back and read the statement in a positive manner like Steve Harvey is trying to protect Snoop and Bow wow rather than dwelling on all the negative things that you don’t like about Steve Harvey then I guarantee that you will separate yourself from all of this negative madness that is going around.

    • Nubian Queen

      Thanks for addressing what Steve said, not who he is or is not. It’s not the same thing. We don’t have to like everything about a person to be able to recognize when he/she is on point!

  • Ida Jones

    I can appreciate what Mr Harvey is stating. He’s forwarning that statements made can be dangerous should something happen not under Snoop’s or Bow Wow’s control. Who are they going to look at as instigator of situation

  • Maurice Wright Sr

    i respect the office of President, and I wouldn’t have done what Snoop did. But I will stand up for his right to do what he did. This is America, we have the right of freedom of expression even the Right agree with that until it become abouth them. He may have spokne out when the tea party was hanging Mr Obama in pictures, talking about assassinating him, talking about his family . I don’t ever seeing Steve saying anything, nor has he said anything about the lies that Mr Trump is telling about Mr Obama now. It has to be a two-way street or not at all. I was always told if you went to be respected you must first show respect, I have yet to see that from this president. Steve I will stand with you and your right to express yourself. even if I disagree with you or anyone else. Maybe not for long, but for right now you still have that Right. What right do I have to say this? I served from 1970 to 1996 in the US Military. Nuff said.

    • Nubian Queen

      This has nothing to do with how Obama was treated. This is about Snoop and Bow Wow putting themselves in danger. Don’t you people understand the ramifications of anyone being perceived as threatening the president???

  • Nubian Queen

    I agree with Steve. I know emotions are running high when it comes to Trump, but we must use our heads. After all, he is the president and has all the power on his sider! Any semblance of a threat against him will be taken very seriously, as it should be. So we have to be smarter in our protests regarding him. I don’t have to agree with Steve on everything he says, and I don’t, but in this instance, I agree with him. I think he was only trying to put the brothers on notice that being black, racists will use any and every excuse to either kill us or put us in prison. There are many ways to get our points across, and even playing around with the notion of killing the president is not the right one. Sorry, “coonery” experts, the rest of us are entitled to our opinions just like you are entitled to yours.

    • Had Enough

      Ugh, when will you people “git ovah yoseffs”?

      • Nubian Queen

        How you could come away with that conclusion after all I said in my post says something about YOU–not me! You are racist, period! So anything you say is based on your own limited intelligence and tolerance for others who don’t look like you!! I have read some of your replies to other posts, so I know YOU are the problem! Even when a person doesn’t go along with the “poor little black me” scenario you allude to that still isn’t enough for people like you! You must be very miserable, and I really feel sorry for you!

  • PB

    Interesting. Barrack Obama dealt with eight years of disrespect from white folks, and I don’t know of a single time that Coon Harvey demanded respect for him. Also, Trump is not respectable and he has no respect for others or even the Constitution. I will never respect him, and I will continue to applaud Snoop.

  • twenty20

    This is bigger than some rapper who doesn’t respect you or your family. Remember that kid in your class that wouldn’t shut up so no one got to go out for recess- that’s this guy. He doesn’t care if your life gets better. He wants you to buy his negativity. And to some, it feels familiar to wallow in the sludge of violence and poverty because nothing needs to change.

  • Dattie

    Respect begets respect. Where was his respect for Pres. Obama for eight years. Please, Steve need to get a grip! He’s Trump to me, not even Pres. Trump because he is classless, certifiable, clueless and definitely not qualified to lead this country and all this chaos is proof!
