Los Angeles - Snoop Dogg has branded Caitlyn Jenner a "science project".

The 42-year-old rapper lashed out about the former Olympian - who was known as Bruce Jenner before her transition - and insisted she isn't worthy of being "major news" compared to the endeavours of other people, such as his friend Akon and his charity work.

In a picture of Akon, Snoop wrote: "Shout out to Akon! He is about to supply 600 million africans with solar power. Im really upset that this isn't major news but that science project bruce jenner is #Society.

He then captioned the Instagrammed snap with: "News flash. @akon tune in to ggn for some real news.(sic)"

News flash. @akon ??????????? tune in to ggn for some real news.

Snoop's comments came as Tom Cruise's son Connor criticised the decision for Caitlyn to be honoured with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2015 ESPYS in July, arguing their were other topics more deserving of being newsworthy.

Despite Snoop and Connor's comments, Caitlyn - whose female persona was revealed in Vanity Fair magazine for the first time this week - has received messages of support from legions of celebrities, including singers Lady Gaga and Sam Smith and actresses Demi Moore and Susan Sarandon.

The 65-year-old reality star broke records by reaching 1 million Twitter followers in four hours - faster than Barrack Obama when he became US President.
