Snoop Dogg is ‘pursuing legal action’ against the creator of the ‘Snoop on a Stoop’ toy, according to reports.
The novelty item, which is reportedly inspired by a children’s book, has had a modern makeover and now resembles the rapper with a blunt in its hand and sunglasses.
However, Snoop Dogg has taken to Twitter and insisted that he in no way endorses this item.

He tweeted: “I have no connection to the SNOOP ON A STOOP product and will be taking legal action against those making it and whoever is selling it.”
According to the New York Post, the 3D print company, called MuckyChris’, has confirmed that there’s been contact with the 50-year-old’s legal team over the doll.
Chris Milnes reportedly told the publication: “I was contacted by Snoop’s lawyers and immediately removed all Snoop references from my website within a day.”
The business’s representative then went on to claim that many Chinese-based companies have also copied the brand’s original idea.
He continued: “What happens next was not my doing.
“Apparently, scam companies using my photos flooded social media with ads and took orders. I placed an order as well to find out what was going on. 100% scam from Chinese-based companies. They take the orders and disappear with your money in a week.”
Milnes has even informed the company’s followers about the copycats on Instagram, commenting: “Hello friends, I’m aware there is a Scam company taking orders for Snoop on The Stoop. They are even using my product photos!
“They take your money and disappear 1-2 weeks later. If you didn’t get Snoop on the Stoop directly from me (or Joseph @ Out of Step Offbeat Boutique) you can be sure it’s a scam.”
It’s believed that ‘Snoop on the Stoop’ is no longer available on the store’s website. However, it’s not been made clear whether it’s to do with the current legal threat.
