Snoop Dogg goes after Microsoft and Bill Gates online

Snoop Dogg doesn't think it should be that hard to make Xbox Live work.

Xbox Live suffered a major network outage Wednesday afternoon, and Snoop Dogg immediately went on Instagram to criticize those he thought were responsible.

"A message to Xbox One or Microsoft or whoever the f---. Y'all f----- servers f--- whack, man. Y'all gonna make me switch to PlayStation if y'all don't hurry up and get this s--- fixed," he said in a video first spotted by The Verge. "[Is it] that difficult to play somebody online what the f--- is you doin' Bill Gates? Fix yo s--- man."

Bill Gates is no longer part of Microsoft's day-to-day operations, but still a board member and "technology advisor."

Microsoft first acknowledged that it was "looking into some troubles" on its gaming network at 4 p.m. ET. About seven hours later, the company tweeted that "the issues should be resolved," but that message didn't seem sufficient for Snoop.

Around the same time, he posted his video again with a new caption: "Xbox 1 f------ sucks online yes i said it ps4 here we come. Ceo. Hit my peoples up we done with xbox."

Both posts have received about 70,000 likes combined. The rapper has 8 million followers on Instagram, and talks about how to play him online from time to time.

A Microsoft (MSFT) spokesperson did not immediately respond to request for comment. Neither did a Sony spokesperson.

Snoop has never been shy about his feelings on the tech products that he uses.

An avid tweeter, Snoop said he would step up as CEO of Twitter (TWTR) when the company announced that Dick Costolo was stepping down last year.

Now that Twitter's stock price is at an all-time low, he has resurrected his campaign.

And does Snoop have any qualifications? Well, he has been more active as an entrepreneur over the past few years.

There's Leafs By Snoop, a line of weed snacks; GGN Hood News, a YouTube talk show series; and "Turf'd Up," another YouTube talk show that he launched just last week.

Snoop has even been an investor in startups like Robinhood, a stock trading app.
