The comedian did not like the image of Snoop Dogg shooting a fake gun at the US President.
Given that it’s a new week, you’d think the whole fracas surround Snoop Dogg’s “Lavender” video with BADBADNOTGOOD would have blown over by now. Maybe it would have, except that Steve Harvey felt the need to insert himself into the conversation. As someone who once met with Trump as he was set to take office, you can imagine how Harvey felt about the whole thing.
While the comedian was astute enough not to criticize the Doggfather for speaking out against President Trump, he still goes after Snoop for he method of protest. “Here’s the problem,” Harvey explained on his morning radio show. “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.”
The media has a long history of blaming artists for the actions of individuals, so Harvey has a point here. However, Harvey gets further onto his pulpit when he says, “the problem with this is that there’s 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.”
We’re pretty sure Snoop is protected by the laws, not threatened by them. Harvey also warned Bow Wow about his comments threatening to pimp out Melania Trump, which probably hold more water morally and legally.
