Martha Stewart’s ‘Disrespectful’ Trump Picture Sparks Outrage (Photo)

The image was posted online by artist Newlin Tillotson, who later turned her Instagram account private. On Stewart’s own Instagram account, she posted a less controversial version of the photo, giving peace signs to both of the portraits, according to The Hill.

Kevin Sharkey, who took the second photo, is reported to work as an executive with Stewart’s company. He posted the version of the photo that he called “politically correct,” saying that it was a “so much less interesting” version of another.

In the pair’s VH1 show, they host celebrities in a “half-baked evening of cocktails, cooking, conversation, and fun where nothing is off-limits.”

Snoop Dogg has previously come under fire in March for a controversial video featuring a parody of Trump. In the video for BADBADNOTGOOD’s “Lavender,” the rapper points a prop gun at a clown version of Trump, Billboard reports.

Even Trump himself weighed in on the video on Twitter.

“Can you imagine what the outcry would be if Snoop Dogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama?” the president tweeted. “Jail time!”

Other artists in the rap and hip-hop scenes came to Snoop’s defense, such as Ice-T and Treach, who expressed their support for Snoop Dogg in a joint interview.

“And it was a confetti gun,” said Treach. “Anybody got shot, confetti came out. It was artistic.”

“I don’t think it was threatening neither,” he added.

“I was nervous,” Ice-T said.

“He’s messing with the line,” he continued. “We’ll see how this weighs out, but I roll with Snoop. I thought it was a good video.”
