And Uproxx pointed out that Todd recalls Bob from marketing, a white character Martin Lawrence played in the early seasons of his 1990s sitcom, Martin.

It's unclear whether Snoop Dogg invented Todd for fun, or if the character will appear in a forthcoming sketch or movie. BuzzFeed has reached out to a spokesperson for Snoop for comment.

Back in March, Nick Cannon was criticized for wearing whiteface to promote his album, White People Party Music, in a since-deleted Instagram.

"There's a big difference between humor and hatred," Cannon told Good Morning America that month. "I was doing a character impression. Blackface is about oppression."

On Twitter, Cannon said he loved the conversation his photo prompted:

I love this conversation though. It’s showing a lot of people’s true colors… #punintended #wppm woooo!!!
