Rapper Snoop Dogg decided to post a photo of two men in bed together on his Instagram. The surprising part is that he used the image to create a homophobic message to two Snoop Dogg haters.
According to BuzzFeed, Snoop Dogg posted the photo on Instagram and deleted it early in the afternoon after it sparked outrage.
Snoop captioned the photo with the following homophobic message, “U n ya boyfriend since u like Jumpn on my page disrespectn b**** boy go suck ya man n get off my line f**.”
So far, Snoop Dogg has not issued an apology.
LGBT icon B. Scott decided to tweet out to Snoop, as well as many others who were also disgusted by the message.

Just so we’re all aware, Snoop Dogg thinks it’s acceptable to use gay slurs at gay people when they piss him off.

Homophobia in the Hip Hop world? Say it ain’t so! Last year Snoop spoke with The Guardian about the LGBT community. While insisting he doesn’t have a problem with gay people since he has “gay homies,” he still didn’t think the rap community would accept people who are gay.
“People who were gay used to get beat up. It was cool to beat up on gay people back then. But in the 90s and 2000s, gay is a way of life. Just regular people with jobs. Now they are accepted, not classified.”
Although The Guardian mentioned that openly gay artist Frank Ocean came out, to Snoop this wasn’t a sign of progress in the Hip Hop community.
“Frank Ocean ain’t no rapper. He’s a singer. 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. It’s like a football team. You can’t be in a locker room full of motherf—ing tough-a– dudes, then all of a sudden say, ‘Hey, man, I like you.’ You know, that’s going to be tough.”
Prior to his ignorant chatter about the LGBT community, he spoke out about gay marriage in 2013. At the time, he told The Huffington Post, “People can do what they want and as they please. 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.”
