Snoop Dogg has been accused of homophobia after a picture of two men apparently in bed was shared on his social media channels, alongside an anti-gay comment.

The black and white image was posted on the rapper’s Instagram and Twitter feeds, with the words: "U n ya boyfriend since u like Jumpn on my page disrespectn b**** boy go suck ya man n get off my line f**."

The image and caption was swiftly deleted, but not before it was reshared on social media.

It is unknown as to whether the image and comment was shared by the rapper – real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus, Jr – or was the result of a hacking.

A spokesperson for the rapper could not be reached.

Snoop said in 2013 that he has "no problem with gay people" and has spoken in support of gay marriage.

"Satisfy yourself accordingly," he told The Huffington Post. "I have no issues with nobody. I live for me and I live my life doing what I do, so you should have the right to do whatever you want to do."

However, he has also admitted in the past that there is still homophobia in the rap world.

"It's acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don't know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine," he told the Guardian. "It's like a football team. You can't be in a locker room full of motherf**king tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, 'Hey, man, I like you.' You know, that's going to be tough."
