Snoop Dogg’s October 4th performance featured pole dancers and profanity – elements which didn’t sit well with university administration.

KU athletic director, Jeff Long issued an apology regarding the performance stating, “We apologize to anyone who was offended by the Snoop Dogg performance at Late Night. I take full responsibility for not thoroughly vetting all the details of the performance and offer my personal apology to those who were offended. We strive to create a family atmosphere at Kansas and fell short of that this evening.”

The controversy was addressed during Snoop’s appearance on the Howard Stern Show.

“They had to cover it up, and, I respect them, and I wasn’t going to put no smut on their name and say they did anything wrong because they invited me to come do what I do, and when you pay for Snoop Dogg, you going to get Snoop Dogg.”, said the legendary rapper.

What do YOU think? Was Snoop wrong for his explicit performance?
