Anyone remember rapper ‘Lil Bow Wow’ from the early 2000s? Not too many may recall the one-hit wonder who once rapped the words ‘Bow Wow (That’s My Name)’ alongside more established hip-hopper Snoop Dogg.
However, now, in the wake of a Twitter response by President Trump to a defamatory scene in a new Snoop Dogg video, Shad Gregory Moss, the man formerly known as Lil Bow Wow (and later, simply ‘Bow Wow’) tweeted an insult about Melania Trump that’s incredibly offensive and disrespectful to our nation’s First Lady.
First of all, President Trump was completely correct in his assessment of the Snoop video. In it, Snoop Dogg is seen quite clearly assassinating a man (wearing clown makeup) who the rapper admits is a stand in for President Trump.
It should be said that while artistic license is something to incorporate in making music and films, this patent example of sick fantasy just pushes the envelope too far. President Trump was entirely justified in calling out Snoop, whom to many minds is nothing more than an unpaid spokesperson for the marijuana industry (although his many lucrative brand endorsements and ad contracts challenge the “unpaid” label).
But second of all, why aren’t feminists calling out Moss, whose crude public language obviously shows his true colors as far as where his values lie? If this canine-inspired rapper had insulted Michelle Obama the same way, you can bet there would be vitriolic speeches and protests from feminists and liberal critics all over the country.
What is it about the entertainment industry being all too happy to jump on the anti-Trump bandwagon, to the point where if an actor or artist merely doesn’t express a political opinion (such as popular singer Taylor Swift), they’re accused of being ignorant or apathetic?
Watch as Fox News’ Greg Gutfield charges ‘Lil Bow Wow’ with blatantly trying to extend his 15 minutes of fame 15 years too late.
