Snoop Dogg Calls for Boycott of 'Roots' Remake: 'They Just Keep Showing the Abuse We Took Hundreds of Years Ago' [Video]


Snoop Dogg is NOT here for the premiere of History’s ‘Roots’ remake tonight.

The rapper took to social media to sound off on the show, saying he can’t stomach anymore movies that depict black people being treated poorly.

“12 Years a Slave, Roots, Underground… I can’t watch none of that shit,” he says. “They’re going to just keep beating that shit in our heads how they did us, huh? I don’t understand America. They just want to keep showing the abuse we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago. But guess what? We’re taking the same abuse. Think about that part.”

He questions when Hollywood will stop trying to use the slave narrative for entertainment and start telling other stories pertaining to Black people.

Check out his video below. Do you agree or disagree with his sentiments?
