Skip to comments.British woman found guilty for posting 'racist' Snap Dogg lyrics on Instagram (UK thought crime)
Posted on 04/22/2018 7:17:18 PM PDT by Cubs Fan
A British teenager was punished by a court after she posted allegedly racist lyrics from rapper Snap Dogg that said "kill a snitch n---a, rob a rich n---a."
Chelsea Russell, a 19-year-old from Liverpool, argued that the words from the song "I'm Trippin" were not offensive, and that she had posted them in memory of a 13-year-old boy who was killed in a car crash last summer.
But the lyrics on Russell's Instagram biography, which any other user can see, were reported to police last year and transferred to a unit for hate crimes over the alleged racism, according to the Liverpool Echo.
The teen was found guilty of "grossly offensive message by means of a public electronic communications network" and given a curfew order limiting her movements from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m., as well as an electronic ankle bracelet to monitor her.
Britain's "grossly offensive message" law is used for a variety of obscene and threatening speech, including that directed at minority groups.
Russell's defense had said that "n---a" is repeatedly used by rap artists such as JAY-Z and Kanye West at large public festivals where it is heard by thousands of people.

Do they mean Snoop Dog? Or is there a Snap Dog that I’m unaware of?
Odd way to remember the death of a child, but England has an out of control government problem.
He recently did a video on "thought crimes" in Britain.It was outstanding,as are most of his other posts.
Yup, Snap Dogg is also a thing:
Nicknamed the Problem Child of Detroit, he gained fame as a member of Beat Gang. He became most well known after he released the single “Trippin” through World Star Hip Hop. During the filming of the music video for “Trippin,” Detroit police shut down the filming and it was all caught on video. The resulting music video would go viral after its release.
After the death of his twin brother, he would be a boxer and attend college before beginning his musical career.
After the release of his single “My Story,” Chief Keef announced he became a Glo Gang affiliate.
He has two daughters and one son.
He and Lil Durk worked together on the single “Shooters” on Lil Durk’s mixtape Menace to Society.
There is a Snap Dogg.
Certainly not worthy of wasting bandwidth here.
What kind of sentence is Snap Dog or whoever going to receive?
Post the lyrics and go to jail.
Who committed the thought crime?
I’m guessing the girl is not black so isn’t allowed to use the n word.
Bizarro World. Truly.
England doesnt have a first amendment like we do. We need to stay out of other countrys business. Every time we poke our noses in it, it costs us more debt. Stop!!!! We have our own problems.
Britain could use a first as well as a second amendment.
You would be correct.
It actually is snap dogg. I'm surprised he doesn't get sued as its an obvious rip off name.
a comment on one of snap doggs videos
Snap Dogg? What's next? Lol Wayne, Kanye east, 3pac?
a hate crime has to have a victim. Who is the victim? The girl did not say anything bad about a black person or even black people. she just quoted a lyric (don’t rap artists use the “n word” all the time, why isn’t the UK bothered by that?)
Its disgusting what’s happening in the UK. Such a wonderful country, and the left is turning it into a Stalinist/Hitleresque police state where thought crimes are punished. It makes me sick.
Orwellian Left or Fascist Right, same thing.
Who says the Nazis didn’t defeat England in WW2. The only difference was the end results took a long time to surface.
The British Lion now wears a swastika and hammer & sickle on its’ mane.
I remember how furious I was when Thatcher allowed Hong King to be turned over to the totalitarian Chinese. I was wrong. They were lucky. Isn’t that sad?
