Ja Rule – Twitter Clowns Rapper For His Appearance In A Greek Restaurant Ad, He Later Explains It’s For A TV Show
Rapper Ja Rule is causing controversy on social media once again! Post-Fyre Festival, fans seem to think he should steer clear of promoting parties. Ja Rule posted video footage of girls dancing to his hit Jennifer Lopez collaboration, “I’m Real.” His tweet read:
“If you want EXCLUSIVE COVID SAFE Vip experiences like these with your favorite artist book them NOW… ICONN.ME book me personally”
But social media nearly went up in flames when Ja Rule, 44, appeared in a viral commercial for a Greek restaurant called Papa Cristo’s Greek Deli.

But the goofy advertisement had a purpose! Ja Rule is a part of the cast of the latest quarantine-themed TBS show, “Celebrity Show-Off.” He’ll appear with the likes of NeNe Leakes and Tori Spelling, competing against the other contestants on who creates the best social media content from home.
Ja Rule revealed his master plan on Twitter.
