Snoop Dogg took to social media on Monday to show his support for the Sierra High School student who was allegedly banned from playing on the girl’s basketball team for retweeting him.
According to a lawsuit filed last month, 18-year-old Racquel Alec was suspended from the team for liking and sharing posts from musicians on Twitter and other social media sites, including one of Snoop Dogg “holding what appeared to be a marijuana joint in his hand.”
Her lawyer alleges that the district’s punishment was an overreaction and a violation of her freedom of speech “for merely a passive clicking/liking of an image posted of a celebrity artist.”
The famous rapper seemed to agree, taking to Instagram to share the story.

“Have her lawyers hit my team this is nonsense,” Snoop Dogg posted.
The Alec family had not yet heard from Snoop Dogg Monday afternoon.
