Anyone who’s been to Los Angeles has likely had a run-in with at least one celebrity. The City of Angels is a playground full of famous faces just waiting to be spotted. But one particular “celebrity” caused an uproar on Twitter over the weekend. On Sunday (July 11), She Rates Dogs podcast co-host Mat George shared a snap of his mother allegedly meeting Snoop Dogg.
“I’ve been in LA for a year and haven’t seen a single celebrity,” George captioned the photo. “My mom comes for a weekend and meets Snoop Dogg.”
But as it turns out, the man is a longtime Snoop Dogg impersonator named Eric Finch who bares a striking resemblance to the D-O-Double-G. As hundreds of people pointed out his mother had been duped, George replied, “Can everyone stop saying it’s not Snoop Dogg. My mom’s gonna be heartbroken the next time she logs onto Twitter.”
