Because of his criminal past, Snoop Dogg was refused entry to Australia where he was to moderate MTV Australia video Music Awards. It’s not the first time that the Dogg’s character, weapons and drug offenses have caused him border entry problems.
“This man has been a member of a Los Angeles gang, and is still associated with it apparently, that’s been involved in murder, robberies and drug dealing in the LA area,” Immigration Minister Kevin Andrew said in Sydney. “I do not believe that we want this sort of type in this country.”
Snoop Dogg, whose real name is actually Calvin Broadus, was to fly in this week to Sydney, where he was to moderate with MTV Australia video Music Awards. Earlier this month the 35 year old Dogg was condemned due to weapon and drug offenses and sentenced to five years probation and 800 hours of community service.
It is the second time in just over a year the rap singer has been denied entry into a foreign country. In March of last year the Dogg and colleague P. Diddy were refused entry to Great Britain.
Snoop Dogg had 28 days to give a reason why he should be allowed into Australia, Minister Andrews said.
“He has been denied entry into the United Kingdom because he was caught with others causing a riot at Heathrow airport,” added Andrews. Snoop Dogg was arrested during a fight at London’s Heathrow airport last year.
