Snoop Dogg is receiving criticism for a segment of his music video, “Moment I Feared,” that has been considered homophobic.
In the video, Snoop Dogg interviews a fictional rapper named Fonz D-Lo that resembles real life rapper Young Thug. Fonz D-Lo has red dreadlocks, a signature look for Young Thug, and sports high heels and a pink handbag. He also appears in a photo shoot similar to Young Thug’s “Jeffrey” mixtape.
Young Thug has been known to bend gender norms by modeling for Calvin Klein’s womenswear collection and wearing dresses in public.
The Guardian music editor Ben Beaumont-Thomas calls the video “openly homophobic” and says it “shows just how out of touch he [Snoop Dogg] now is with modern rap.”
Beaumont-Thomas also remembers Snoop Dogg’s other problematic behavior including when he posted a photo of two men together on Instagram captioned, “go suck ya man n get off my line f. A. G.”
