Bunny Wailer is accusing “Snoop Lion” formerly known as “Snoop Dogg” of using the reggae culture as an act for publicity.

Wailer, a former drummer for The Wailers, claims Snoop’s new image is an “outright fraudulent use of Rastafari Community’s personalities and symbolism.”

Snoop is planning on releasing a new album titled “Reincarnated” along with a documentary of the same title which will focus on Snoop’s new reggae image.

According to TMZ, the Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council or otherwise known as the “Rastafari Millennium Council” has threatened legal action against Snoop.

The group says Snoop does not represent the “Rastafari Indigenous Culture” just by smoking marijuana, listening to reggae music, and enjoying Bob Marley.

The council is asking for “financial and moral support” and a public apology.
