You really should think twice before you post anything on social media when you’ve had a few drinks. That applies to anything that you want to post. If you’re posting condolences you really should think potentially more than twice before you send anything out! Otherwise, you run the risk of doing what 50 Cent did. The rapper-turned businessman took to social media yesterday to post his condolences over the untimely death of actor Michael K. Williams. What he ended up posting looked more like a promotional picture rather than sincere condolences.
Is He Saying Drugs Contributed To The Actor’s Death?
Looking at it now it kind of seems like 50 Cent had some type of template for his posts. He forgot to delete the text before hitting publish. What ended up happening is that he posted a picture of an article announcing the passing of Michael K. Williams. With a caption that read,
“Damn if you didn’t see Raising Kanan check it out that fentanyl is no joke, killing the clientele,”
Immediately after that line, he did write RIP Micheal K. Williams. On top of everything misspelling the name of the actor.
The Hashtags Take It To Another Level
If the misspelling of the name and 50 promoting his series wasn’t disrespectful enough, he went ahead and sprinkled some hashtags on the post that really threw people over the edge. He wrote #bransoncognac, #lecheminduroi, and #bottlelover. Yeah, you’ve had to have a couple of bottles in order to be this out of touch. The rapper has since deleted the post. However, by then it had been passed around social media. Obviously, 50 Cent is getting a lot of pushback from fans over this incident.
He Doubled Down
50 Cent can sure hold a grudge. Even after that person has passed away. His recent IG posts are proof of that. Even after he deleted the initial post he doubled down and wrote a cryptic message in a subsequent post. Using another screenshot from an article that talked about the “beef” that 50 Cent and Michael K. Williams had had. He wrote in this second post,
“don’t ever try to understand me i’m different. I don’t do all the fake love s**t”.
What Was The Beef That 50 Cent & Michael K. Williams Had?
50 Cent and Michael K. Williams had their differences over the potential assault of James Rosemond, Jr, AKA Jimmy Henchman. After 50 Cent had come out and reported that the former executive had been assaulted Michael K. Williams debunked those claims. That lead was a series of social media posts of all things. In which 50 Cent warned Williams to mind his own business. Fifty also proceeded to mock Williams by posting pictures of gay sexual intercourse scenes that Williams’ character on the show The Wire, was involved in. It’s safe to say that the 2 were not the best of friends. Still, 50 Cent could’ve just let this one slide and take the high road.
