People are up in arms over Snoop Dogg's congratulatory tweet to President Donald Trump.
In the post, the rapper wrote 'Your new commander and chief' - probably meaning commander-in-chief - above a picture of a cracker covered in peanut butter, swaying in a way to emulate Trump's hair.

Tweeters were quick to call out Snoop for his apparent use of the term 'cracker', a racial slur against white people, to convey a joke.
