Snoop Dogg Denied Visa in the UK, Hopes to Appeal Decision

snoop2.jpgAccording to Reuters, Snoop Dogg has been denied a visa to enter the United Kingdom for the Pass The Puff European Tour he is currently on with Sean “Diddy” Combs. Although the British Home Office will not comment on individual cases, it is likely that Snoop is being denied entry to the country because of a brawl he and his entourage were involved in at Heathrow Airport in London last year. Snoop and Diddy are scheduled to perform at Wembley Arena on Tuesday and also have shows planned at Cardiff, Manchester, Glasgow, and Nottingham. According to a spokeswoman for the rapper, Snoop is appealing to the British Government to make an exception and allow him to enter the country and move forward with his scheduled performances. “Snoop still sincerely hopes that the British Government will reconsider their decision and U.K. shows will be allowed to go on as planned,” his spokeswoman said in a statement. “Many routes are being explored to the Prime Minister to have the decision reversed.”

    I applaued England for making these grown ass men have some sort of responsibility. Snoop and his people are too damn old to be starting fights and getting high. Any man who is still doing the same shit at 40 that he did at 17 is a damn fool and a bitch to boot. Grow up snoop, act your age you skinny gay bitch. Suge was right you are a bitch.
