KU apologizes for Snoop Dogg's Late Night in the Phog performance
The University of Kansas has issued an apology after a controversial performance by artist Snoop Dogg at Friday's Late Night in the Phog.
"We apologize to anyone who was offended by the Snoop Dogg performance at Late Night," Kansas AD Jeff Long said in a statement.
The performance caught criticism after the rapper brought out dancers with poles, shot fake money into the air, and used profanity in unedited songs.
"We made it clear to the entertainers' managers that we expected a clean version of the show," Long said.
Long personally apologized to those who were offended, adding that he takes full responsibility for not thoroughly vetting all the details of the performance.
"We strive to create a family atmosphere at Kansas and fell short of that this evening," Long said.
He added Snoop Dogg was scheduled as the last act of the night to allow guests to still watch all of the basketball activities, even if they didn't want to stay for the rapper's performance.
