Snoop Dogg isn’t happy with who was nominated for the 2016 Oscars and wants to let everyone know. Taking to Instagram, the 44-year-old Long Beach, California native yelled about how “no ni**as were nominated” and is very clearly boycotting the annual movie award ceremony.
“Somebody asked me was I going to watch the motherf**king Oscars,” he told his followers. “F**k no. All these great movies and all this great s**t y’all keeping stealing from us. F**k you.”
Snoop is just the latest celebrity to boycott The Academy. Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee yesterday both said they would not be attending the Oscars this year. Many claim 2016’s nods lack diversity as the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite blew up after the list was released. No major nominees of color other than The Revenant director Alejandro González Iñárritu received a nomination. Pinkett Smith’s husband Will Smith was up for a nomination for Concussion but didn’t receive one.
