Snoop Dogg spent his entire Monday handing out Thanksgiving turkeys to underprivileged families at Sofi Stadium in Inglewood. Unfortunately, all that holiday spirit wasn’t enough to save his own Thanksgiving, which, according to a rant on his Instagram stories, stank hard.
Each year, the City of Inglewood hosts a Thanksgiving food drive, with donations from Pepsi, Frito-Lay, Don Lee Farms, and the Los Angeles National Food Bank. This year volunteers, including the LA Rams, the LA Chargers, and Snoop D-O-Double-G, distributed 2500 turkeys and non-perishable foods goods to grateful southern California residents.
One of those residents was Mildred Slaughter, who told ABC7 News, “I’m 89 and it’s a blessing. Heaven sent!” Another woman, Caroline Cruz, excited to cook a feast for her family, said “with these resources I actually have food to put on my table.”
While there, Snoop spoke to reporters about how important the annual drive is to him, saying, “we look forward to making sure the families have something to eat. We want to continue this tradition no matter what we’re going through in the world. We just want to always be able to provide for them and know that they can depend on us.”
Snoop also discussed his love for “the personal side,” of his fame and outreach. He proclaimed how much he enjoys, “[being] close and personal; for people to see me, touch me, take pictures with me, to be able to know I really care.”
Sadly, these warm feelings dissipated after he left the charitable event. Later that week, after apparently waiting an unacceptable amount of time for his own meal, he took to Instagram to lament his experience. His vocabulary choices differed significantly from his earlier remarks.
On a rant posted to his stories, he complains, “You know the shit I hate? Thanksgiving. They make you wait all fucking day to eat, then when you finally eat, the food don’t be worth a fuck. Just straight bullshit. Next Thanksgiving leave me the fuck alone. I’m sleep, bitch.”

Yikes. Who is responsible for ruining Snoop’s Thanksgiving? As someone who once was forced to wait until 9 PM on Thanksgiving just to be served mediocre food with a group of hangry, awkward strangers, I fully relate to his wrath. This should never have happened. Especially after all he did for the community. It just goes to show, no good deed goes unpunished.
Despite Snoop’s terrible misfortune, he still managed to bring cheer to others on Thanksgiving day, and not just the ones to whom he handed out food earlier in the week. His cookbook full of recipes brought joy to many as well.

Let’s hope next Thanksgiving goes better for Snoop. Until then, may he drown his sorrows in gin and juice.
