Former co-host of “The Star & Buc Wild Morning Show” on WWPR-FM Star took to his “Live & Direct” online radio show to chastise Snoop Dogg for his recently donning whiteface in a series of Instagram posts. Snoop posted several images and videos of himself in a blonde wig playing a character he calls Todd. In one of the posts Snoop also promotes a dating website called White Guys Connect and says his interests are paintball, crotchet, and spoken word.
On his most recent edition of “Star: Live & Direct” the radio show host claims that the timing of Snoop’s stunt was poorly conceived given the racially charged tension in Ferguson, Missouri.
“Today is, just how racist is Snoop Doggy Dogg Friday? He’s gotten a pass long enough,” Star said. “I haven’t really went in on him—pause—like I have other people. There’s no particular reason why I haven’t, he just doesn’t affect me. I don’t take him seriously. He’s not a pimp. I’ve never really had an issue. I never gave a fuck about his music. What is it he did with Dr. Dre? The Chronic. The Chronic was banging. ‘Gin and Juice‘ was my shit. But after that, I couldn’t name one fucking Snoop Dogg track if you gave me a million dollars. I don’t know what the fuck he did down at Priority Records. I have no concept. But nigga you need to pump the fucking brakes. He’s now painting his face white, wearing a white wig, running around calling himself Todd. Nigga, what the fuck are you doing? People are down in motherfucking Ferguson, Missouri, this is the pulse of the nation right now. He picks this time to come out with some stupid shit. He’s got some corny people around him, amping him up, smiling.
Briefly offering his opinion on the context of the disguise, Star also mentioned Nick Cannon’s recent Whiteface portrayal in comparison.
“Now, there are many people who say, ‘Black people cannot be racist,’” he said. “I think Black people are some of the most racist people on the planet. I’m a bi-racial racist, race-baiter. That’s me goddamnit. Nick Cannon just did some whiteface dumb shit and people were like, ‘Nigga, kill yourself, we don’t give a fuck how much money you got.’ I wanna go in today on this nigga Snoop.
“I can’t sit here as an objectivist and give Snoop Doggy Dogg a fucking pass,” he added. “I can’t do it…White person puts on Blackface they come down on them, should Snoop Doggy Dogg get a pass? Or is it just fun? Why is a nigga of that caliber doing that dumb shit?”
During the show Star also spoke briefly about the ongoing aftermath in Ferguson, Missouri before redirecting his attention on the rapper.
“Just how racist is Snoop Dogg? I encourage White people to call in today. Don’t just assume because I’m a man of color that I’m gonna take the side of people of color. I think the mainstream press should come down on this nigga like a ton of bricks.”
