In his brand new music video for the new song, Snoop Dogg points a fake gun at a clown-in-chief Ronald Klump, criticizing police brutality and the controversial U.S. president.
In his new music video for "Lavender", Snoop Dogg seems to show his political stand. It features a character called Ronald Klump, a clown-faced version of Donald Trump. In the music video, the "Young, Wild and Free" rapper points a gun at Ronald Klump, before smoking weed beside the chained-up clown Klump.
Snoop Dogg was a supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2016 presidential election. Through this music video, he criticizes police brutality and U.S president Donald Trump. "I feel like it's a lot of people making cool records, having fun, partying, but nobody's dealing with the real issue with this f**king clown as president, and the s**t that we dealing with out here, so I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being," Snoop Dogg told Billboard.
"Trying to keep from dying in these motherf**kin streets/ F**k the police, from a black man's point of view," Snoop Dogg raps, pointing on police brutality.
YouTube star Jesse Wellens co-directed the video with James DeFina. Wellens told Billboard that he was inspired by Philando Castile, who was shot by police, in July last year. Snoop Dogg added, "The whole world is clownin' around, and [Jesse's] concept is so right on point with the art direction and the reality, because if you really look at some of these motherf**kers, they are clowns."
There is still no reaction regarding this music video, which is mocking the U.S. president. During the 2008 election, conservative commentator Liz Trotta had to apologize for a "lame attempt at humor" for a joke she made about then-senator Barack Obama being assassinated.
