No Snoop for You!

The question is not Who let the dog out? but rather who will let him in?

Controversial US rapper Snoop Dogg is being denied entry to Australia after failing a character test, the federal government says.

 

The cancellation of the rapper, record producer and actor’s visa means he will not be able to appear at the MTV Australian Video Music Awards this weekend, as planned.

 

Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said Snoop Dogg was being issued with a notice of intention to cancel his visa after he failed to pass the requisite character test.

 

Snoop Dogg, 35, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, pleaded no contest to felony gun and drug charges in the US earlier this month.

 

“The reality is in relation to this man, that he was given a warning the last time, he has a whole string of convictions, and just two weeks ago I was told he was convicted on a number of charges again and sentenced to three years imprisonment on two, and three years imprisonment on another, with five years probation and a suspended sentence,” Mr Andrews told Macquarie Radio.

 

“He has been denied entry into the United Kingdom because he was caught with others causing affray at Heathrow Airport (in London)

 

“He doesn’t seem the sort of bloke we want in this country.”

Which begs the question: how the hell did this guy get in?
