This controversial video, originally posted on Ian Jaeger’s X account, has quickly gained traction, racking up hundreds of thousands of views. It has also ignited a fierce debate, especially on social media platforms. Trump supporters, known for their unwavering loyalty, have not taken Snoop Dogg’s comments lightly.

While another user sarcastically remarked:
“Yeah… I often take advice from pot-smoking rap artists that sing about killing cops and presidents….”
In the wake of this controversy, Snoop Dogg has faced accusations and criticisms from various corners. Some social media users did not hold back in their condemnations, with one even making a racially insensitive remark, accusing the rapper of being easily influenced and uninformed:
“@SnoopDogg is the greatest rapper the Plantation has ever had. They own him and use TF out on him to spit lies and propaganda. Snoop is uninformed and unintelligent, so he’s easily persuaded.”
Actor Amiri King also chimed in, pointing out the rapper’s checkered past and expressing skepticism about his qualifications to provide political advice:
Meanwhile, it’s worth noting that this isn’t the first time Snoop Dogg has taken aim at Trump. In 2017, he released a politically charged music video for the song “Lavender,” portraying Donald Trump as a clown and even pointing a gun at the former president.
As Snoop Dogg’s TikTok video criticizing Trump continues to gain traction online, netizens have drawn attention to his past actions, such as thanking the former President for issuing a pardon to Death Row Records co-founder Michael “Harry O” Harris in 2021.
