Snoop Dogg Denied Entry Into Australia

Thu Apr 26, 2007 10:24 pm

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) — Snoop Dogg has been refused entry into Australia because of his extensive criminal record, the immigration minister said Thursday, the second time this year the rapper has been barred from entering another country.
Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Cordozar Calvin Broadus Jr., was due to fly into Sydney this week to co-host the MTV Australia Video Music Awards.

Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said Snoop Dogg's visa was canceled because he had failed to pass the country's strict character test, which takes criminal convictions into account.

"He doesn't seem the sort of bloke we want in this country," Andrews told Sydney's Macquarie Radio.

Guess if he keeps his act up, he will be touring the US exclusively pretty soon...

Changes to what? He was arrested in Sweden not that long ago for drug possession. I don't think he's going the line of the honest man any time soon.

Um. Why? The rules are the same in many countries, if you think you might be turned away, then contact the embassy or consulate of the country being visited beforehand to check. It's not down to Australia to tell him in advance. The only reason some might think he should get in is because he's famous. An "ordinary" person with a record like his wouldn't be granted entry, so why should he?

Good. Celeberty shouldn't trump over a criminal record as to access to a country. Australia, keep up your standards, but also enforce them evenly.

MCOflyer:
I am all in favor of giving someone a 'chance' if they want to change. Instead this is a man that has glamorized the thug/gangster lifestyle and has worn the criminal lifestyle on his sleeves.
Therefore, I have no sympathy for him being rejected from Australia.

Snoop Fan here... but I do agree that since anyone else with his sorta record would've probably been met with a brick wall to entry, the same should befall him.

Well done Australia.

Oh what insight you have.

Criminals were never sent to Australia, because Australia came into being in 1901. And if you'd like to start comparing national crime rates - go right ahead!

Oh, no no no. I'll never compare crimes rates. I said that because what I've learned was that when Australia was once a British colony, that the more severe convicts, etc were sent there and left there on their own. If I'm wrong, so be it.

What do you mean? As far as I know, most western countries don't admit felons and drug runners into their borders. Haven't you seen the US visa application form? They ask all sorts of weird questions...like anyone would really answer "yes" to "Have you ever been involved in a genocide?"

BTW..well done to our Immigration minister. Mr Dogg and his crap are not welcome here.

The one I always like is "have you ever claimed immunity from prosecution?"

Does that mean that if you shout "You can't do this to me" as they're dragging you away you can't go to the States?

A guy I used to work with was a member of the British CP, he was going into the States and the INS guy asked him "have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?" his reply was "Yes, I am a member".
The INS guy just folded his arms, glowered at him and said "look, buddy, I've had a long day. I'm going to ask you that question again and this time you'd better give the right answer!"  Smile
