Snoop Dogg may have gone too far when he posted an insulting meme about Caitlyn Jenner on Wednesday, saying she’s nothing more than a “science project,” and the world should focus on “some real news.”
Whoa! That’s going to get him into some trouble.
Although Snoop Dogg, 43, has a tendency to post on controversial topics, this may be his most controversial, according to the blog, Hollywood Life.
“It’s no secret that Snoop Dogg, 43, is controversial, but his latest Instagram post — where he insults Caitlyn Jenner — seems to be so out of line, even for him. On June 3, the rapper took to Instagram to say Caitlyn’s just a ‘science project’ and the world should stop putting so much focus on her transition.”

Apparently, Snoop Dogg would prefer that people spend more time on “real news” like the fact that Akon is supplying 600 million Africans with solar power.
In his June 3 Instagram post, Snoop posted a picture of Akon with the information in the form of a meme, which also served as an insult on Caitlyn Jenner.
“News flash. @akon tune in to ggn for some real news.”

Hollywood Life also mentioned Jon Stewart’s recent comments on Caitlyn Jenner’s coming out during a June 2 episode of The Daily Show.
Jon Stewart noted that Bruce Jenner has been praised for his athletic abilities, but as Caitlyn, she will only be noticed for her looks.

Although he praised Caitlyn Jenner’s courage for coming out, he dismissed how the media is portraying the reveal.
“You see, Caitlyn, when you were a man, we could talk about your athleticism, your business acumen. But now you’re a woman, which means your looks are really the only thing we care about.”
