US President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen says rapper Snoop Dogg should apologise for his latest music video in which he parodies an assassination of Trump.
In the video, a character named Ronald Clump gets shot with a prank gun. With his long, bright red tie and orange makeup, Ronald Clump is a stand-in for Donald Trump.
Cohen said the rapper crossed the line in a big way by mocking the President with a gun. “It’s totally disgraceful. Snoop owes the President an apology. There’s absolutely nothing funny about an assassination attempt on a President, and I’m really shocked at him, because I thought he was better than that,” tmz.com quoted Cohen as saying.
“I certainly would not have accepted it if it was President Obama. I certainly don’t accept it as President Trump, and in all fairness, it’s not funny, it’s not artistic,” he added.
“Just because you want to hide behind the guise of artistic capabilities or artistic freedom of speech doesn’t make it right. Snoop knows that, and he played very close to the line here,” he further added.
SnoopDogg’s latest politically charged music video discusses police brutality, travel ban and all other issue ‘Trumpland’ is facing now.
