Snoop Dogg calls Bruce Jenner a “science project” in a new Instagram post, in which he complains that Jenner’s transition to Caitlyn Jenner is not “real news.”
Yesterday, Snoop posted a photo Akon. On the picture, the text read, “Shout out to Akon! He is about to supply 600 million Africans with solar power. I’m really upset that this isn’t major news but that science project Bruce Jenner is #Society.” In the Instagram caption, Snoop wrote, “News flash. @akon tune in to ggn for some real news.”
Many of his followers called him out for the post, arguing that it shouldn’t be an “either or” situation. One angry commenter wrote on Snoop’s post, “What is wrong with you? You can make it news, you have that power, the only news you just made is how incredibly intolerable and insensitive you are #smh.” Another said, “There are always going to be ‘more important issues,’ but why do you have to downplay how much Caitlyn Jenner is helping the trans* community and society? Both are important to societies in different ways.”
Others, however, agreed with Snoop to extent, such as the follower who posted, “She’s not a science project, thats hella rude. But I do agree that it’s ridiculous this isn’t making major headlines etc.” Someone else simply wrote, “Fantastic!!”
Snoop’s post, which some are taking as transphobic, comes two days after Timbaland made waves for insisting that Jenner should still be called “Bruce” because that’s the name her mother gave her.
