It’s widely known that 50 Cent is a bit of an internet troll who enjoys poking fun at everyone, but this week he seemed to have turned his sights on the star of his own show, ‘Power.’
Earlier this month the rapper posted a meme on Instagram making fun of Naturi Naughton, the leading lady of his hit Starz series which is currently in its final season.
In the savage meme meant to mock her appearance, Fif compared her hairline to that of Goro from the video game Mortal Kombat. After she called her boss out for being “mean,” the executive producer actually apologized, which for him is incredibly rare.
“He knew what he did was shady and apologized for it,” Naughton told Page Six. “He realized it wasn’t the nicest thing to do. I accepted his apology, I’ve moved on.”
“He’s an EP on the show, I’m a star on the show, I can’t be worried about something like that,” she continued. “He believes in the work that I do on ‘Power,’ so it was just a matter of making sure that that comes across. I think he gets it, we’re cool. I’ll see him at work within the next couple of days. I don’t hold grudges, it’s water under the bridge.”

Wednesday, the rapper was kicked off Instagram altogether for his antics, but unfortunately he didn’t seem to learn from his mistakes and just took the trolling to Twitter.
“who the f—k did this, POWER is #1,” he wrote in the caption that accompanied an unflattering split screen.
Naughton once again chose to take the high ground in her response, stating, “There’s so much I wanna say but… You don’t even have an Instagram account so… 🤷🏾♀ why waste my characters or come out of my CHARACTER! But do pick up a copy of my upcoming book: #whatNOTtoDoWhenYoureABoss 🤦🏾♀ #ImNotACharacter #IAmARealPerson #IAmAWoman #IAmABlackWoman.”
