(AllHipHop News) While chatting with Marlow Stern of The Daily Beast, Natalie found it surreal that the POTUS would find time out of his busy schedule to condemn a gangster rapper for a provocative video.
Snoop’s video for “Lavender” has been condemned by a variety of pundits and politicians, for its portrayal of Snoop shooting a fake, clown version of Donald Trump, in the head.
Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz denounced the video, while President Trump himself also weighed in with a Tweet, criticizing the video, while claiming Snoop’s career was “failing.”
“It’s certainly not what we want, and what our President should be focused on,” Natalie Portman said.
President Trump’s tweet against Snoop Dogg is considered ridiculous, since he has yet to denounce a number of hate crimes and anti-semitic threats taking place across the U.S., including a high-profile incident where an Indian immigrant in Kansas was shot to death after being told, “Get out of my country.”
Natalie Portman, a Jew, feels that the Trump Administration should be more focused on condemning the heinous acts instead of tweeting against Snoop Dogg.
“All of the examples of hate crimes and hatred, whether it’s against the Indian-Americans who were killed in the Midwest, or against Jews, or against all the different minority groups where it’s been happening, it’s really outrageous and the government certainly needs to step up against it and make their voice clear on the unacceptable nature of these attacks and threats,” Natalie Portman told The Daily Beast.
Artists like Ice-T, Treach, T.I., Common and even Bow Wow have rushed to defend Snoop, although Bow Wow’s threats to pimp out First Lady Melania Trump, did not go over well either.
