Snoop Dogg says he’d ‘protect’ Emilia Clarke’s eggs any day in bizarre first meeting
| Last updated
Did anyone have Snoop Dogg and the Mother of Dragons forming a beautiful friendship on their 2023 bingo card?
Nope, us neither, but it might just be the best thing to happen this year so far.
While none of us quite saw it coming, it turns out Snoop and Emilia make quite the pair after meeting at one of the Dogg Father's show at the O2 earlier this week (21 March).
On meeting for the first time, the unlikely duo appeared to form a heartwarming friendship as Snoop heaped the Game of Thrones actor with praise in a now-viral TikTok.
The 51-year-old rapper beamed as he told Emilia how much he admires her and her work.
“You’re an amazing actress, beautiful spirit, you’re so believable," he said.
"I would protect your eggs any day."
Snoop's team laughed as an amused Emilia responded: "Can I get that in writing?"
Luckily for us, the heartfelt conversation was caught on camera by the 'Sweat' rapper's tour promoter and later shared on TikTok, where it has since been viewed more than 4 million times.
And unsurprisingly, fans have been lapping it up, with one commenting: "Snoop, protector of the realm and the 7 kingdoms," while another added: “Snoop is Snoop Dragon. Queen's Protector.”
A third GOT fan wrote: “Snoop Dogg, First of his name, Spokesman of the Rasta, Voyager of the Entergalactic Realm, Protector of The Mother of Dragon lol.”
While the fans on TikTok and the rapper had many kind words to say about Emilia, not everyone has been so kind recently, with the actor facing a barrage of insults on social media last month.
The Terminator Genisys star posted a make-up-free selfie on Instagram as she held a mug from her mother, which read: "You're doing f***ing great."
Despite racking up more than 2 million likes on Instagram, the photo was later shared to Twitter by vile trolls, who picked on the 36-year-old's appearance.
In one mean-spirited tweet, a user wrote: "Lmao wow Daenerys Targaryen didn’t just hit the wall she flew into it full speed on a dragon."
Fortunately, fans were quick to jump to Emilia's defence, with one responding: "All of these comments are really just men mocking a woman way out of their league."
Another added: "Mediocre misogynistic men never learn to shut the f*** up. She is beautiful, natural, and newsflash: people age.
"Also, she is one of the kindest, friendliest and positive celebrities who went through 2 deadly brain aneurysms whilst filming Game of Thrones so f*** you."
