Snoop Dogg has Australian Visa cancelled

Rapper fails a character test

Snoop Dogg has Australian Visa cancelled
Snoop Dogg has been denied entry into Australia after failing a character test.

It will mean that he will not be able to appear at the MTV Australian Video Music Awards this weekend.

Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said Snoop Dogg was being issued with a notice of intention to cancel his visa after he failed to pass the requisite character test.

As previously reported the rapper was denied a visa to enter the UK in March.

Andrews said: “The reality is in relation to this man, that he was given a warning the last time, he has a whole string of convictions…He doesn’t seem the sort of bloke we want in this country.

“This man has been a member of a Los Angeles gang - and is still associated with it apparently - that’s been involved in murder, robberies and drug dealings in the LA area."

Andrews said that Dogg would have an opportunity to respond to the cancellation of his visa, reports Stuff.
