Snoop’s post on Instagram lands the dogg in some hot water.
Snoop Dogg has been known to keep his followers thoroughly entertained via his Instagram account, even sparking a brief spat with Australian rapstress Iggy Azalea back in October over a post. Today the Doggfather might be in some legal trouble over his comedic styling on The Gram.
A few days ago, Snoop posted a photo of a man with the caption, “Whose auntcle is this?” The Maryland native, Cortez Booze, was then bombarded with a slew of hateful comments from Instagram users.
The comments ranged from people calling him a “shemale” and “confused,” as well as other derogatory homophobic slurs. According to TMZ, Booze reported the image to Instagram but also plans on filing a lawsuit against the rapper for posting his image which sparked the negativity. This is similar to the lawsuit filed against Shaquille O’Neal, who posted a photo of a man with a genetic disorder this past summer. That case is still pending.
Celebs have to tread lightly when posting photos or memes online, which is something they should already know. When the lawyers come out, it gets real.
