Musician Snoop Dogg took to social media on Thursday to protest the decision by Facebook and Instagram to ban Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan from their platforms for inciting hatred.

Snoop called his followers to post their favorite Farrakhan videos and “show some love to a real brother.”

Farrakhan was expelled along with other controversial personalities like Milo Yianopoulos and Laura Loomer. In the past he called Hitler ‘a great man’ and claimed Jews were involved with the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Snoop claimed Farrakhan was “putting the truth out there” and that “I stand with him, ban me 'motherf***er.”

Born Calvin Broadus Jr, Snoop is one of the most successful rappers to hail from the US, selling 35 million albums worldwide since he was discovered by Dr. Dre, with whom he collaborated repeatedly.  The nickname Snoopy was given to him as a child by his parents because he liked the Peanuts comic character; he began playing piano in the Baptist Church.


He was reported as a follower of the Nation of Islam in 2009 but had since then discovered the Rastafari movement, converting to that faith in 2012.
