The ‘Sweat’ hitmaker – real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus – reportedly shared a derogatory message alongside a photograph of two men lying in bed together – taken from another user’s account – on his social media feeds yesterday morning (15.09.14), but deleted them approximately 40 minutes later.
According to Buzzfeed, which captured a screen-grab of the image and the comment, the 42-year-old star wrote: “U n ya boyfriend since u like Jumpn on my page disrespectn b**h boy go suck ya man n get off my line f. *. G (sic).”
Snoop has yet to address the controversy, but previously insisted he is a supporter of the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community and gay marriage.
Last year, he told the Huffington Post: “Satisfy yourself accordingly. I have no issues with nobody, I live for me and I live my life doing what I do, so you should have the right to do whatever you want to do.”
He later told the UK’s The Guardian newspaper: “I don’t have a problem with gay people. I got some gay homies.”
But he claimed the rap world might not be ready for a gay rapper.
Discussing R&B star Frank Ocean’s decision to open up about this sexuality, he said: “It’s acceptable in the singing world. But in the rap world I don’t know if it will ever be acceptable, because rap is so masculine.”
