50 Cent made headlines after taking to Instagram to endorse former United States president Donald Trump, after seeing president elect Joe Bidenâs tax plan for the ultra-wealthy. 50 posted a picture with Bidenâs proposed tax plan and wrote, âWHAT THE F***! IâM OUT, F*** NEW YORK, the Knicks never win anyway. Donât care if Trump doesnât like Black people, 62% are you out of your f****** mind?â
âA lot of people were upset with 50 after seeing this endorsement, even if it was a joke, including his ex-girlfriend and comedian Chelsea Handler. Her and 50 had a back and forth on Twitter, before the two had a private conversation about his comments. Chelsea then took to popular talk show The View to share that 50 would be voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and that his comments about Trump were a joke.
During his recent appearance on The Breakfast Club, 50 Cent said that the Trump administration had initially offered $500 000 him to come to his inauguration and endorse him, before boosting that offer to $1 000 000.
â50 Cent says that the increase in payment came while he was still confused as to whether or not he should do it, before coming to the conclusion that Trump needed his support to boost his appeal among the Black vote.
â50 says that it wasnât until after he declined Trumpâs offer that he caught wind of Bidenâs proposed tax plan for the ultra-rich, causing him to end up publicly endorsing Trump anyways. But 50 says he wasnât paid to make that post.
âLil Wayne was also under fire after meeting with Donald Trump, posing for a picture with him and posting it on Twitter to endorse him just prior to the election, and 50 Cent says he easily got paid for that.
I guess that means Lil Pump mustâve got paid too, and that I can understand, but Lil Wayne? Did he really need the money that bad?
