Martha Stewart Asks Lil Yachty If It Bothers Him When Snoop Dogg Says “N**** S#!t”
Martha Stewart has her foot in the hip-hop industry, as she has a strong friendship with Snoop Dogg, but it looks like some of her recent comments could potentially hinder that. Filming for season two of Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party, Lil Yachty made an appearance on the show, where she allegedly asked the rapper a controversial question.
Fader's new cover story about Lil Boat details the rapper's time on set of the cooking show on VH1, and states that Stewart asked Yachty a question that used the n-word. While Yachty was asked about his new album, Teenage Emotions, while on set with other guests Laverne Cox and Gary Owen, the image of his album cover didn't appear, as the network had failed to clear the artwork. This led Snoop Dogg to allegedly curse at the staff with a "swear-filled finger wag," where he reportedly referred to Yachty's artwork as "this nigga's shit."
The magazine article mentions that Stewart did not seem to be fully prepped on Yachty's background, and being that he doesn't drink or smoke, she spoke to him "like an innocent child."
"Taping stopped and the Doggfather stood up, chastising the powers that be for never getting stuff cleared. In a very loud, swear-filled finger wag, Snoop appropriately referred to Yachty’s album cover as 'this nigga’s shit,'" writes Rembert Browne in the Fader piece. "So Martha, sitting at a table with her co-host, Yachty, comedian Gary Owen, and actress Laverne Cox, leaned over — while wearing a sari for their Indian food-themed episode — and, both maternally and ignorantly, said, “Yachty, does it upset you when Snoop says ‘nigga shit?’”
Browne then details the reaction of the show's guests, as well as some of the crowd, which was mixed with horror, outrage and some laughter.
"The room filled with every imaginable reaction: anger, horror, embarrassment, laughter, joy, pain. Throughout the exchange, Martha Stewart did not seem to understand what the big deal was. Yachty’s reaction: a huge smile. It had been a long morning of sitting and waiting, following a day of interviews that involved a great deal of sitting and waiting. Once he finally made it on stage, he was charismatic, but seemed to be running on fumes. When Martha had her record scratch moment, though, Yachty came alive."
Viewers at home will not be able to hear the alleged comments from Stewart when the episode airs, as they were made when taping was paused.
