50 Cent Accuses Oprah & Gayle King Of Being Silent Amidst George Floyd Protests
Rapper and mogul 50 Cent is not afraid to call out anybody on social media, his latest victims are TV host and best-friends Oprah and Gayle King. 50 Cent took to his Twitter to allege that the two have not been noticeably missing from taking up for the lives of black people during this time. He posted a “missing” photo with both women on it, reading
“Last seen, tearing down black men, but no where to be found when it comes to murder of Greg Floyd, or any injustice directed at black men.”
He captioned his post with, “just facts people”.
“Once again I say thank goodness that there’s videotape, you know, I think as the daughter of a black man and the mother of a black man, this is really too much for me today. I’m still rattled by that last story, and she’s practically strangling her dog, practically strangling her dog to make these false accusations, against another black man. I’m still so upset Vlad, I’m so sorry. I’m still so upset by that last story where the man is handcuffed underneath a car where people are pleading, ‘please, he can’t breath,’ and we’re watching a man die. So we go from that story, now to this story, where she falsely accuses a black man on television. I mean, I don’t even know what to do or how to handle this at this particular time. I know that this is, [staggering] I am speechless. I’m really, really speechless about what we’re seeing on television this morning. It feels to me, like a open season and that it’s just, a not, sometimes a safe place to be in this country for black men and today is too much for me. Tony and Anthony, I’m gonna turn it over to you.”
Gayle King recently addressed 50 Cent’s beef with Oprah, 50 Cent recalled the run in:
“Gayle is the real deal — a very sophisticated, secure, and smart lady. She’s never afraid of a situation…so she marched right up to me and basically said, ‘Why you talkin’ sh*t about my girl?’”
Ari Lennox who recently slammed both Oprah and Gayle King, issued an apology for her “insensitive” comments about Oprah and Gayle King,
“I am sorry. I was acting like an a**. Im sorry for being insensitive. I truly love y’all so much. I swear to god i be meaning well. I’m not the most structured when i start talking and that has been a blessing and curse. I’ve grown too comfortable with viewing my supporters as my bestie that I can freely vent to with no repercussions. I feel the need to protect people that I feel are genuinely good people. If you know me, you know I speak on what’s unjust in MY mind. But it doesn’t matter if ultimately my opinion is perceived as toxic and ignorant and harmful.”
