Zoroastrians Are Suing Snoop Dogg After Music Video Shows Him Smoking Under Religious Symbol
According to Patheos, The Faravahar is an important symbol of Zoroastrianism, depicting a guardian angel of sorts.
So when Snoop Dogg is sitting on a throne, smoking a joint, with the symbol right above him, you can understand why some religious types might get all offended...
It all happens in the music video for "King" by Iranian pop singer Amitis.
And it's pissed off one community to the point where they've filed a completely unnecessary lawsuit:
A public interest lawsuit has been issued by the Calcutta Zoroastrian chapter in the hopes of getting the video, which also features pole dancers in golden underwear and men as cliched Ancient Egyptian servants, banned.
A representative said: "The wrong use of religious and sacred symbols and iconography hurts, insults and outrages the religious sentiments and beliefs of Parsi Zoroastrians."
