Harvard: No Doggs Allowed

While Snoop Dogg will be celebrating Slope Day with Cornell students, Harvard students will have to drink their “Gin and Juice” alone.

According to The Crimson, a May 1 concert featuring the rapper was tentatively scheduled, but negotiations broke off last week for a variety of reasons.

“Due to many unavoidable obstacles, including financial considerations, the [University Council] and the [Harvard Concert Commission] have decided not to move forward with plans to bring Snoop Dogg to Harvard,” Undergraduate Council President Matthew J. Glazer told The Crimson.

Since it was announced that Snoop Dogg might be performing in Cambridge, many Harvard students expressed displeasure with the concert because of lyrics they felt were degrading to women.

Alecia McGregor, a Harvard junior and member of the Association of Black Harvard Women, told the Boston Herald that she was relieved that the concert would not cause division on the Harvard campus.
