UPDATE: October 15 at 4:40 p.m. ET
The beef is officially squashed.
Snoop Dogg posted an Instagram video Wednesday afternoon saying he spoke with Iggy Azalea's manager, the rapper T.I., and that he apologizes for the "bad talk" toward the Australian recording artist.
Azalea accepted Snoop's apology on Twitter.
I appreciate the apology @snoopdogg— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) October 15, 2014
Let that be that people, time to focus on the positive things I've got going on. no time to dwell on the negative.— IGGY AZALEA (@IGGYAZALEA) October 15, 2014
Thank God that's over. Now we can all go back to more pressing matters, like finding out how basic we are online.

In your weekly reminder that the Internet is a great place for doing dumb things you'll regret later, Snoop Dogg, Iggy Azalea and Nick Young are waging a social media war over an Instagram picture.
From there, Snoop and the "Fancy" rapper went down an ugly rabbit hole of social media trash talk and meme-slinging.
Azalea posted a now-deleted picture of the rapper titled, "When your drug addict aunt gets clean."
Snoop shot back with memes comparing Azalea to the Wayans brothers in White Chicks.
The rapper then posted an Instagram video calling Azalea a "c--t" and telling Young to "check [Azalea] before I do." (NSFW language)
More social media ugliness followed, and eventually, Young—Azalea's boyfriend—chimed in on Twitter with some remarks for the "old head."
These old heads turnin into sucka's ..— Nick Young (@NickSwagyPYoung) October 15, 2014
Ain't nobody worried about no SnoopLion .. This dude Just goin thru a midlife Crisis you Go get convertible yet . OG's out here losin— Nick Young (@NickSwagyPYoung) October 15, 2014
As of Wednesday morning, Snoop had yet to respond to Young's remarks, but it would be a distinct breach in his operating procedure if the rapper let the remarks go unanswered.
Unless some sort of truce or stand-down is secured by November, it's going to be awkward times at the Staples Center this NBA season. There's only so much avoiding you can do when the man who threatened your girlfriend during an exceedingly dumb social media exchange is sitting courtside.
So let this be a lesson to all those keyboard warriors out there, both famous and anonymous: Don't be a social media samurai, kids. Sometimes you need to throw a tarp on the Internet machine and go outside.
