50 Cent said ‘Fu*k Donald Trump’ after recent support
50 Cent circled back after ex-girlfriend Chelsea Handler called him out
50 Cent said “Fu*k” President Donald Trump in response to his former girlfriend, comedian Chelsea Handler’s public chiding. Handler also jokingly alluding to rekindling their relationship if he were to denounce Trump.
On Sunday, 50, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, posted on Twitter and Instagram, a video of an interview between “The Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon and Handler, The Hill reported.
“Fu*k Donald Trump, I never liked him. for all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL,” 50 Cent tweeted.
In the interview, Handler noted that Jackson was her “favorite ex-boyfriend,” saying she was disappointed by his “endorsement.”
“He doesn’t want to pay 62 percent of taxes because he doesn’t want to go from 50 Cent to 20 Cent,” said Handler. “I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump, and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook.”
The “endorsement” stemmed from 50 Cent’s reaction to a screenshot of Democratic-nominee Joe Biden’s supposed tax plan.
As theGrio previously reported, 50 Cent shared a screenshot of CNBC infographic, taken out of context, highlighting that Biden’s plan would increase state and federal tax rate for top earners.
50, alongside rappers Ice Cube and Kanye West, has received backlash from Black social media groups for assoicating himself with the Trump administration.
Regardless, White House officials like Trump’s senior campaign advisor, Katrina Pierson, are elated by the rapper’s “endorsement.”
