Snoop's 'Trump clown' YouTube video causes outrage

Pressbox (Press Release) -
It's not every day that a music video gets millions of YouTube views, and a senator's critique of it is also trending on the site.
On Tuesday, however, that was precisely where we found ourselves with respect to Snoop Dogg's slightly controversial video for "Lavender (Nightfall Remix)."
It depicts a world in which everyone is a clown, but the police are still bad clowns and the president is a clown with oddly straw-colored hair and the name Ronald Klump.
There's a scene in this video that will surely not be to everyone's taste.
Snoop, who for some peculiar reason of art or ego isn't a clown in the video, pulls out a gun and conducts a mock assassination of Klump.
It's a toy confetti gun, of course. But the feeling it leaves behind isn't exactly playful.
