Amidst the hashtaggable backlash the Academy is receiving for the lack of black talent on this year's Oscars nomination list, rap legend Snoop Dogg has taken to Instagram to air out his grievances with the Academy Awards.

“Somebody was actually like am I gonna watch the motherfucking Oscars. Fuck no," he said about the annual ceremony in a video clip.

"What the fuck am I going to watch that bullshit for? They ain’t got no n----s nominated. All these great movies and all this great shit ya’ll keep stealing from us. Fuck you! Fuck you!” 

Other rappers who have blasted the Oscar nods -- which sparked the trending topic #OscarsSoWhite -- include Bun B and Jeezy. 

 

Fuck da. Oscars
