Seems like The University of Kansas wasn’t too pleased with Snoop Dogg‘s choice of backup dancers. Lets just say, the dancers didn’t take Snoop’s notable hit, “Drop It Like It’s Hot” true meaning lightly.
Recently (Oct 4th), The University of Kansas’ athletic director Jeff Long released an apologetic letter to those who were offended by Snoop Dogg’s not so family friendly performance at their latest basketball game.
“We apologize to anyone who was offended by the Snoop Dogg performance at Late Night,” Long said. “We made it clear to the entertainers’ managers that we expected a clean version of the show and took additional steps to communicate to our fans, including moving the artist to the final act of the evening, to ensure that no basketball activities would be missed if anyone did not want to stay for his show. I take full responsibility for not thoroughly vetting all the details of the performance and offer my personal apology to those who were offended. We strive to create a family atmosphere at Kansas and fell short of that this evening.”
This statement follows KU’s Late Night in the Phog event which marks the start of the basketball season.
According to XXL, “Snoop put on a big 35-minute show that was reportedly supposed to feature radio edits of his songs. He performed the explicit versions of his hits and also had multiple pole dancers performing alongside him at points during the show. One video captured Snoop performing “Gin & Juice” while a woman in short shorts dances on a pole next to him.”
