Snoop Dogg denied opportunity to spread peace and love

// 27 March 2007

snoop doggMisogynistic rapper Snoop Dogg has been denied a visa to enter the UK on his European tour with Sean ‘Diddy’ Coombs, reports Yahoo! News.

Snoop will be contesting the decision as the pair apparently “feel strongly that the uniting message of the One Love Peace Tour will need to be shared with fans no matter what”. One does wonder, however, how exactly Snoop aims to convey a message of love and peace with such lyrical gems as:

Can you control your ho? (You got a bitch that won’t do what you say)

You can’t control your ho? (She hardheaded, she just won’t obey)

Can you control your ho? (You’ve got to know what to do, and what to say)

You’ve got to put that bitch in her place, even if it’s slapping her in her face.

Ya got to control your ho. Can you control your hoe?

This is what you forced me to do, I really didn’t want to put hands on you, but bitch you

playin’ with fire, I’m so sick and tired. Of bitches like you, a nigga had to go and put
tips on you, bitch you playin’ with fire, I’m so sick and tired.

I guess peace and love only applies if you have a penis.

Nice to see the government put Snoop in his place; here’s hoping it stays that way.

Oh, and remember, ladies: if a guy beats you, it’s only because you made him do it.
