Rapper Bow Wow has jumped into the fray begun after President Donald Trump hinted that Snoop Dogg could face "jail" time following his video showing him pointing a fake gun at a Trump character dressed as a clown .
Trump’s tweet pondered the possible recriminations had Snoop’s video referenced his predecessor:
Atlanta rapper and actor T.I. defended Snoop in a profanity-laced Instagram post but Bow Wow took things quite a bit further:
"Ayo DonaldTrump shut your punk ass up talking s*** about my uncle Snoop Dogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us," the artist officially known as Shad Moss tweeted. Here's the link to his full message.
UPDATE: The tweet has been deleted .
Irrespective of the video flap, Melania Trump's popularity is on the rise, climbing 16 points since her husband was sworn in A new CNN/ORC poll survey found that 52 percent of Americans have a favorable view of her, an increase from 36 percent before the inauguration.
Reaction to Bow Wow's pointed message indicated many followers thought he took things too far. The First Lady isn't one to traffic much on social media and has kept a very low profile. She doesn't even live in the White House yet. She's still in New York while the Trumps' son Barron finishes the school year.
