Rapper Snoop Dogg mocked Bruce Jenner's transition to the female identity Caitlyn Jenner, calling Jenner "a science project," and chided the media for its coverage.
"Shout out to Akon!" Dogg wrote in a photo caption on Instagram. "He is about to supply 600 million Africans with solar power. I’m really upset that this isn’t major news but that science project Bruce Jenner is #Society."
Jenner has received widespread praise for the photo shoot and interview in Vanity Fair that announced Caitlyn, but some have criticized the accompanying developments, like Jenner's receipt of ESPN's ESPY award for courage. Many tweeted that Lauren Hill, who played college basketball with terminal brain cancer before dying in April, should have received the award.
