Is it just me or is anyone else a little angry angry with Money-Supermarket for using the presenter of a Hardcore porn movie - Snoop Dogg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snoop_Dogg%27s_Doggystyle) & massive sexist in their TV adverts.

What message does it send to children when a family brand like Money-Supermarket endorses people involved with a predatory industry that is already too much a part of mainstream culture.

I'm ashamed to say it (mainly as I sound like my mum), but I for one will not be using them from now on!

He's resurrecting his huggy bear role for the ad. I'm not sure he's relevant anymore anyway

Love Snoop grin hes never pretended to be anything he isnt,and hearing his voice on the ad made me look up from MN to see if it was him, so job done in getting people to take notice. Are you actually outraged op? Does it consume you? If so i have serious concerns for you, there is much more important things to worry about than MoneySupermarkets choice of ad stars grin

I agree with you OP. But nobody cares how badly male celebrities treat women.

Flame me all you like for this but if you are getting involved with somebody like that you know exactly what you are in for.

The porn industry may be disreputable and exploitative but it stands on higher moral ground than both the banking industry and the tobacco industry.

Also, I'd rather have the porn-related Snoop Dog round for dinner with my family than the non-porn-related Kerry Katona.

Let's get things in proportion.

I love Snoop

can not understand why people get so worked up about some rap artists, what do you want them make music about a nice happy world were women and men are treated equally, black men and woman are treated equally, about their happy perfect lives living in some sort of stepford wives world

really it is an advert, he is very cool and many admire him and can see beyond the persona, music and videos
