Snoop Lion Aggravates The Rastafarian Community

"Smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and Reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari indigenous Culture!"

Snoop Lion
Snoop Lion formerly Snoop Dogg, new image does not sit well with various members of the Rastafarian community.  Bunny Wailer, only surviving and founding member of Bob Marley and the Wailers, has reportedly told TMZ that Snoop Lion lied about becoming a Rasta just to make a movie and sell records...The TMZ article further stated that Bunny Wailer is heated about the docu-film "Reincarnated"..which documented Snoop's immersion in the Rasta culture as he recorded his first reggae album in Jamaica last year and they're threatening to sue.

Bunny Wailer
TMZ reports that Bunny Wailer claimed Snoop has engaged in "outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community's personalities and symbolism"....and has failed to meet "contractual, moral and verbal commitments."

The popular website reported that Bunny Wailer further stated that the converted Reggae crooner (Snoop Lion) failed to meet the "contractual, moral and verbal commitments of Rastafari causing the Council question Snoop's motives for making the switch and demanding he drop the 'Lion' off his name immediately!  "Smoking weed and loving Bob Marley and Reggae music is not what defines the Rastafari indigenous Culture!" 

Snoop Lions transformation has not only pissed off Bunny Wailer but, and according to TMZ, has also left leaders of the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council (aka Rastafari Millennium Council) burned. 

In explaining the demand of Bunny Wailer and the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council from Snoop Lion, TMZ summarized, they want Snoop to stop using the name "Lion" up the "financial and moral support" they claim he committed, and issue a public apology.  If Snoop refuses....they're gonna sue his ass.  

But while Snoop Lion is yet to respond, he showed up at LAX sporting a 'Bob Marley shirt and a badass Rasta cap.'
