Snoop Dogg stands with Jemele Hill.
When it comes to activist voices in the world of professional sports, Snoop Dogg is a staunch supporter of them speaking their minds. The veteran rapper and cooking show star took to Instagram over the weekend to make his stance on Jemele Hill's statements about Donald Trump very clear: he has absolutely no problem with anything she said.
"This message is for me homegirl Jemele Hill," began Snoop. "I'ma say what you can't say: f**k them motherf**kers. All of 'em. Everybody who got a problem with you. F**k 'em. I said it. Motherf**kers." Hill was previously condemned by many social media users after she flat-out called President Donald Trump a white supremacist, prompting White House staff member Sarah Huckabee Sanders to state that the sportscaster's actions were definitely something she should get fired for. Snoop, on the other hand, says she was only speaking her mind.
"Homegirls spoke her mind, that's what she's supposed to do," continued the Doggfather. "[...] ESPN better not fire her. If [they] fire her, we ain't f**kin' with y'all. Period. Point blank. F**k him, that orange piece of s**t." Snoop's closing words for Trump in this particular video continued to go for the jugular: "suck d**k or die tryin' motherf**ker." If anyone was questioning whether or not Snoop would take a passive stand on Hill's comments about Trump, there should be no doubt in their minds as to what his opinions are now. As a matter of fact, this is the second strong stand the rapper has taken against the conservative dragging of a member of a the African-American community standing up for what they believe in. Just last week, he appeared on an ESPN talk show and went into great detail as to why he stands with Colin Kaepernick as well.
"I done seen players in the league that ... I ain't even gonna say what they did. Y'all know what they did. But it wasn't worse than what [Kaepernick] did," he said at the time. "[Kaepernick] peacefully protested - the word is 'peacefully.' I've seen some protests in Charlottesville that wasn't peaceful [...] show the benefits of what he did on the positive side, [where] he brought some awareness to something that's actually happening."
