Snoop Dogg and George Lopez respond to President Trump's criticism of Marshawn Lynch
WASHINGTON (Sinclair Broadcast Group) -- After President Trump criticized Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch for standing during the Mexican national anthem, Snoop Dogg fired back in an expletive-filled Instagram post.
In a tweet sent on Monday morning, President Trump said, "Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down."
The rapper responded by calling for Trump to be "suspended" after the President called for the NFL to suspend Lynch.
"They should suspend your (expletive), all the goofy (expletive) you do everyday," he said. "When are you going to get suspended mother****er? F*** you."
The rapper continued saying, "I'm with Marshawn Lynch. Stand up for the Mexican national anthem, we f*** with Mexicans, (expletive). They the homies."
He even shouted out LaVar Ball who has also been at the center of criticism from Trump after saying the President didn't do much to get his son LiAngelo out of prison in China.
"LaVar Ball, good looking out. I wanna thank that mother****er," he said. "Should've left him in jail, what kind of (expletive) is you?"
Comedian George Lopez re-posted Snoop Dogg's video on his social media pages.
Lopez carried a similar sentiment to Snoop Dog's statements saying, "it's embarrassing that the office of the president has been reduced to someone hiding behind social media tweets to get his point across."
The comedian also reiterated his belief that NFL players sitting or kneeling during the national anthem was not about the American flag or patriotism.
This isn’t about patriotism , it’s not about the flag , if you think it is , you probably thought voting for a guy with zero political experience was a good idea , we are more divided and we have less respect for each other than I can ever remember , you want to point fingers , go ahead it’s easy , but actions speak louder than words , so if you’re pissed over at @beastmode not standing or the national anthem yesterday , then maybe you’ve forgotten what its like to have freedom of expression . I was in that stadium yesterday the country of Mexico came out to support @raiders @patriots 77 thousand of them , they wore the hats and the jerseys of two great professional American football teams , the way this country turns its back on people , it’s own people , people who are abused and murdered and rounded up like animals everyday is frankly embarrassing . It’s embarrassing that the office of the president has been reduced to someone hiding behind social media tweets to get his point across , come out and speak to the American people . You seem to have more to say behind people’s backs , If you want to be a leader, than lead . If you don’t have the courage to do that then come out and take a knee, it beats hiding in the White House with your head up your a**! I appreciate the post @snoopdogg #chingon
