Did Snoop Dogg just become the latest celebrity to make a major faux pas on social media?

A homophobic slur showed up in his his Twitter and Instagram feeds early Monday morning, when the rapper posted a photo of two men lying in bed together, along with the following message:

“U n ya boyfriend since u like Jumpn on my page disrespectn bitch boy go suck ya man n get off my line f. A. G.”

The post was deleted 30 minutes later, but not before it was captured by Buzzfeed.

So far, neither the rapper nor his reps have commented on whether he was actually behind the damning post, but in an interview with the Huffington Post last year, Snoop Dogg said that he didn’t have a problem with gay marriage.

“Satisfy yourself accordingly,” he said. “I have no issues with nobody, I live for me and I live my life doing what I do, so you should have the right to do whatever you want to do.”

In another interview with The Guardian last year, he also said that he had gay friends.

“I don’t have a problem with gay people,” he said. “I got some gay homies.” In the same interview, Snoop Dogg added that the rap world might not be ready for a gay rapper yet.

“It’s acceptable in the singing world,” he said, referring to Frank Ocean coming out. “But in the rap world I don’t know if it will ever be acceptable, because rap is so masculine.”
