Snoop Dogg Blasts Remake of Roots

Snoop Dogg went on an Instagram tirade with The History Channel over its new "Roots" miniseries.

The 44-year-old rapper criticized the network for producing TV shows and movies that continue to show African Americans as slaves.

"I'm sick of this s---. How the f--- are they going to put 'Roots' on, on Memorial Day?" he began in a profanity-laced Instagram video."They going to just to keep beating that s--- into our heads about how they did us, huh?"

In the Instagram video he also disapproves of other period dramas such as WGN's "Underground" and the Oscar-winning 2014 film "12 Years a Slave," slamming the entertainment industry for continuing to show "the abuse that we took hundreds and hundreds of years ago."

When you all going to make a motherf------ series about the success that black folks is having?" he asked. "The only success we have is 'Roots' and '12 Years a Slave?'"

The rapper finished his plea by vowing not to watch the new "Roots" remake and urged his fans to boycott it with him.

"Let's create our own s--- based on today," he concluded. "How we live and how we inspire people today. Black is what's real."

The new "Roots" miniseries premiered Monday, Memorial Day on The History Channel.
