President Donald Trump tweeted criticism of Snoop Dogg on Wednesday morning after the rapper released a music video shooting a clown dressed as the president.
The video is for a remixed version of the song “Lavender,” by the Canadian group BadBadNotGood featuring Snoop Dogg and Kaytranada, and features the rapper shooting at the Trump character with a gun that releases a flag with the word “bang.”
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida came out against the video on Tuesday, telling TMZ that “Snoop shouldn’t have done that.”
“We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should really careful about,” Rubio said. If the “wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea,” he continued, “you could have a real problem.”
Trump and Snoop Dogg have a history. In 2011, the rapper participated in the “Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump,” lampooning the future president.
