A controversial music video was just released for the new song “Lavender” (Nightfall Remix) by BADBADNOTGOOD ft. Kaytranada & Snoop Dogg.

The video features a society where everyone is portrayed as a clown, even President Donald Trump. Popular comedian, Michael Rapaport stars as an average husband and father who gets shot by a police officer after getting caught smoking illegal substances while in his car. A person nearby captures footage of the shooting on his cell phone, and proceeds to upload on the website “ClownTube.” The song speaks out against police brutality and hints at recent events that have occurred in today’s society.

In a later scene,  “Klump”, a composite character of Donald Trump, is seen at a “Clown House” press conference where the TV news-crawl reads, “Ronald Klump wants to deport all doggs.” Klump then later appears in the video with his hands raised above his head as Snoop Dogg fires a fake pistol at his head to portray a mock assassination.

On March 15th 2017, Donald Trump tweeted out after the release of the video, “Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama, Jail time!”

Senator Marco Rubio responded to the release of this video saying that, “We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is something people should be really careful about,” Rubio said. “I think people can disagree on policy, but we’ve got to be careful about that kind of thing because the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea and you could have a real problem.”

Was Snoop Dogg wrong in the releasing of this video? Did Donald Trump overreact? That is the major discussion over the controversial video that is swarming social media sites recently.
