Rapper Shad Moss, aka Bow Wow, threatened to “pimp” out Melania Trump, the first lady, Wednesday night on Twitter.
The despicable threat came after President Donald Trump responded to a music video for the song “Lavender,” in which controversial rapper Snoop Dogg pretended to shoot a parody version of the president.
“Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!” tweeted the president on Wednesday.

Moss responded by threatening Melania Trump and calling the president a “punk a**.”
Moss said he and Dogg would “pimp” out the first lady and “make her work for us.”
Trump wasn’t the only one to take issue with Snoop Dogg’s incendiary video. Rapper Ice-T shared concerns as well.
“The part where you point the gun at the president is against the law — you know you [Snoop Dogg] gotta know that,” the “Law and Order: SVU” star told TMZ. “You can’t kill the president. But I think he pushed the line.”
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio also responded negatively to the video. The noted rap fan told TMZ, “We’ve had presidents assassinated before in this country, so anything like that is really something we should be very careful about.”

Along with Moss, rapper T.I. stuck up for Snoop Dogg and had some extremely vulgar words for the president — all of which we will not print here for that reason: “@snoopdogg is a F***in Legend u F***ing Tangerine Tanned Muskrat scrotum skin… ” the rapper wrote on Instagram, and more in that distasteful vein.
However, even that unintelligible and rambling insult didn’t amount to the misogynistic words of Moss. No matter one’s feelings on the president or the way Snoop Dogg expressed himself, going after the first lady and threatening to “pimp” her out just because someone called a friend’s career “failing” is beyond wrong. It’s unpatriotic, inappropriate, misogynist and cowardly.
