Snoop Lion Granted Work Visa for Australia Despite Criticism from Women’s Rights Group
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.15.2014



The Guardian reports that Snoop Lion has been granted an Australian work visa, despite a petition with 2,500 signatories that asked the rapper not be allowed to enter the country.

Snoop Lion is set to perform at the Big Day Out festival later this month. The Collective Shout group asked for his work visa to be revoked, claiming his lyrics glorify violence against women. Immigration minister Scott Morrison reportedly said, "Snoop Dogg has a visa."

He apparently received a letter from Collective Shout that said:

"Snoop Dogg's lyrics glorify violence against women which puts all women in danger. His behaviour also contradicts our national plan to reduce violence against women... If you really care about women and girls, you will revoke his visa and deny him entry."
