Snoop Dogg is being accused of gay bashing because of an Instagram post the Long Beach, California rapper published featuring a man named Cortez Booze, according to a TMZ report published yesterday (January 8).

“Cortez Booze tells TMZ … 5 days ago the rapper posted a pic of him on Instagram with the caption, ‘Whose auntcle is this?’ “ Tmz reports. “The pic triggered a torrent of hate … people calling him f*****, shemale, confused, ugly, punk and a host of other slurs.“

Booze said he will hire a lawyer to pursue action against the LBC rapper over the Instagram post of Booze’s face posted January 3.

The “auntcle” image has over 40,000 likes and a slew of comments.

Snoop was embroiled in a social media maelstrom with Grammy nominee Iggy Azalea in October in which Snoop posted a photo clowning Iggy. She said that Snoop’s meme’s did not reflect his character in person.

“and for the record i only had an issue with the meme in the first place because he acts another way to my face, he even follows me,” Iggy Azalea wrote on Twitter on October 14)

Snoop Dogg later buried the hatchet with a call to Iggy’s mentor T.I.

“Boys and girls, I just got off the phone with my homeboy Tip, the King of Atlanta and it’s officially over,” Snoop said in an Instagram post. “No more bad talk. I apologize. Yeah. I apologize. I’m sorry. I won’t do it again.”

Snoop Dogg has not taken down the Instagram post of “aunctle” Cortez Booze, nor has he commented on his desired course of legal action.

Snoop’s next album, Bush, which is due out in mid March, is produced by Pharrell Williams.

“Snoop’s album is better than mine,” Pharrell said in an interview with Los Angeles radio station Power 106’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood. “It’s Snoop Dogg. You’re gonna bug out from the approach of what we did. We’re almost done. The songs are done. Now I’m just adding the finishing touches…But dude. Snoop’s album is better than mine.”
