Snoop Dogg discloses what he meant to mean by “quit smoking,” fans react.
American rapper Snoop Dogg sparked a flurry of reactions after deleting his earlier posts where he had announced his apparent decision to quit smoking. As it turns out, the iconic rapper was not bidding farewell to smoking altogether but rather embracing a “smokeless” lifestyle. In a clever move, Snoop managed to playfully deceive the internet with his initial declaration of quitting.
On Monday, November 20, 2023, observers noted the absence of his previous posts, and instead, Snoop shared a new video. However, the surprise unfolded as the video revealed itself to be an advertisement for a smokeless stove, showcasing Snoop Dogg’s knack for humor and unexpected twists.
In the video, he said, “I have an announcement, I’m giving up smoke. I know what you’re thinking, ‘Snoop, smoke is kinda your whole thing.’ But I’m done with it, I’m going smokeless.”

Snoop Dogg’s post has ignited a range of reactions from his followers and the broader social media community. Many hailed him as a marketing genius, appreciating the clever play on his initial announcement of quitting smoking. Some even admitted that they had suspected it was a ploy from the beginning.
Chanel West Coast commended Snoop, declaring, “Marketing genius!!! Man, best marketing play ever, Snoop, you really had everyone bout to quit smoking.” Meanwhile, another user expressed skepticism, stating, “I knew it when he said ‘smoke’ that all was not what it seems.”
However, not everyone found the post amusing. Some users criticized Snoop Dogg for being insensitive, particularly towards those who are actively working to overcome addiction.
One disgruntled user voiced their displeasure, saying, “Joking around with sobriety/quitting substances is lame af. Snoop has just become a puppet for whatever commercial brand has the bread at the moment. He’ll say whatever you want him to. Sad trajectory.” The mixed reactions reflect the diverse perspectives on Snoop Dogg’s unconventional marketing approach.
