Snoop Dogg is getting a lot of backlash after he posted an Instagram about Caitlyn Jenner than many fans are interpreting as transphobic.

Snoop posted the insensitive meme Wednesday while promoting Akon's new do-gooder initiative in Africa.

The photos feautres an image of Akon with the text, "Shout out to Akon! He is about to supply 600 million africans with solar power. Im really upset that this isn't major news but that science project bruce jenner is #Society." Snoop captioned the pic, "News flash. @akon tune in to ggn for some real news."

The 43-year-old rapper was immediately on the receiving end of nasty comments from haters who found his Caitlyn comment rude and distasteful.

"You guys are absolute idiots. Newsflash to you @snoopdogg, most people are not old stoners and are actually capable of caring and eventually helping more than one cause at the time... You are disgusting," one person commented.

Another wrote, "Disgusting. Why is there a need to bash someone in order to applaud someone else?"

"Just deleted all your music off my iTunes," another shared. "You have no respect for trans people so I have no respect for you. What Akon is doing is heroic, but that does not need to be used to denounce Caitlyn's heroism. Coming out on such a huge scale will ad has inspired so many LGBTQ people, so f—k you Snoop, that not a science project."

"You just lost a fan. What a loser you are," another commented.

(With the release of her Vanity Fair cover on June 1, Caitlyn has chosen to publicly identify as a woman and E! News will refer to her using female pronouns. In stories published prior to this date, Caitlyn was referred to as Bruce and male pronouns were used.)
