Here's Why Snoop Dogg Thinks Everyone Should Boycott The 'Roots' Remake

"They going to just to keep beating that s**t into our heads about how they did us, huh?"

Published May 30th

Snoop Dogg took to his Instagram this afternoon to voice his frustration about the new Roots remake.

Spoiler alert: he has no intention of tuning in. 

Sending the message out in a video he posted on Instagram, Snoop urged fans to join him in boycotting the four-part series, which made its debut today on The History Channel.

“I’m sick of this s**t,” he says in the video. “How the f**k are they going to put Roots on, on Memorial Day? They going to just to keep beating that s**t into our heads about how they did us, huh?"

Snoop also mentioned 12 Years A Slave saying that he has no interest in watching shows that “keep showing the abuse we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago.”

He does raise a good point, calling for creatives in 2016 to “create our own s**t.”

"I ain't watching that s**t, and I advise you motherf***ers as real n****s like myself; f**k them television shows," he continued. "Let's create our own s**t based on today, how we live and how we inspire people today. Black is what's real. F**k that old s**t.”

Check out his full commentary in the video clip below.
