AceShowbiz - British soccer player Paul Gascoigne has hit back at Snoop Dogg, after the rapper poked fun at the troubled star on Instagram.
The 47-year-old sparked backlash when he shared two side-by-side snaps of the ex England player on Wednesday (June 26) - a fresh-faced photograph of him aged 20, and a shocking picture of him at 47 - with the caption: "Alcohol abuse".
In the same post, the "Signs" hitmaker shared a set of pictures entitled "Marijuana abuse", which showed pictures of the rapper at the same ages, hardly looking any different.
Taking to Twitter on Friday, the former midfielder fired back at Snoop's post. Sharing an image of a black dog wearing jewellery and posing with a microphone, he wrote: "Morning @SnoopDogg get your lazy a**e out of bed it's walkies time woof woof you ugly t**t LOVE GAZZA xxx"
While it is unknown whether the "Young, Wild & Free" hitmaker - real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr. - knew the extent of the 52-year-old's struggle with alcohol addiction, drugs and mental health, fans were quick to slam the "disgraceful" post.
"No-one disrespects Gazza and gets away with it," wrote one user, while another commented, "Snoop Dogg is cancelled after going after Gazza like that."
