50 Cent claps back at fat-shamers with awesome merch promo
Despite pulling off his upside-down performance - that the rapper debuted in 2003 - effortlessly at the age of 46, the internet was focused on 50 Cent’s apparent weight gain
50 Cent has been severely blasted with fat jokes on social media since his surprise performance during the 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show on Sunday, February 13. But the rapper claps back at the fat-shaming haters by using the attention to promote his merchandise. In the show, the rapper rocked his iconic hanging stunt during a fiery performance of 'In da Club.'
Despite pulling off his upside-down performance - that the rapper debuted in 2003 - effortlessly at the age of 46, the internet is not going easy on him and have shifted their focus on the rapper’s apparent weight gain. The critics took to social media with a streak of puns charged at the rapper’s appearance. One Twitter user said “50 cent got fat now he a dollar,” another wrote “50 Cent out here looking like a FAT BAT.”

Trolls even took a shot at the veteran rapper with his lyrics from his love song '21 Questions' saying “I love you like a fat kid loves cake”. While many fans of the American rapper came forward to defend him saying “What psychological delusion leads some to believe 50 Cent is FAT!? I don’t even give a f**k about Fifty, but this is ridiculous,”. “People tried to clown 50 Cent during the Super Bowl saying he got fat knowing damn well most of them aren’t in the same shape they were in 20 years ago either,” said another.

50 Cent, however, appeared to be unperturbed by the mean comments online and somehow leveraged it to promote his new line of G-Unit streetwear. Amid a digital fat-shame rain, the veteran rapper wrote on Twitter “Get your G-Unit Tank tops & Headbands Now,” he counter blasted haters with a meme that begged him and his fellow performers at the Super Bowl - Dr Dre, Mary J Blige, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar, to headline a collaborative tour.
50 Cent was recently in the news after actress and comedian Chelsea Handler, who once used to date 50 Cent, took a dig at her former beau after the rapper showed support to Donald Trump while ditching his opponent Joe Biden. According to reports, 50 Cent was not happy with the Democratic nominee’s tax plan and tweeted, “Yeah, i don’t want to be 20cent. 62% is a very, very, bad idea. 😟i don’t like it! #abcforlife nov 18 #starzgettheapp.” The ‘Patiently Waiting’ singer also shared a TV news graphic of Biden's tax plans on his Instagram account and claimed that he did not care if the Republican leader “doesn’t like Black people.” He shared the same thoughts in his tweet that upset his ex. Handler did not understand her former flame’s logic behind supporting Trump and tweeted, “You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend.”
