I musikvideon till låten "King" visas Snoop Dogg rökanden något som likar en marijuanacigarrett, när han samtidigt sitter på en gyllenetron krönt med en zoroastrisksymbol. Yahoo News skriver:
And while Snoop smoking is nothing new, this time he’s lighting up near a sacred Zoroastrian symbol – something the faith finds disrespectful and blasphemous. It also doesn’t help that the video features shots of scantily clad pole dancers.
The Calcutta Zoroastrian chapter which issued the public interest lawsuit is hoping to ban the video, and a representative said: “The wrong use of religious and sacred symbols and iconography hurts, insults and outrages the religious sentiments and beliefs of Parsi Zoroastrians.”
From a completely secular perspective though, “King” is offensive because, honestly, it’s just not very good.Döm själva.
