Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent mock Oprah Winfrey's on-stage fall in LA: 'Michael and Kobe blew a gust of wind'
Rappers Snoop Dogg and 50 Cent mocked Oprah Winfrey after she fell on stage while on tour in Los Angeles just weeks after the 'Young, Wild, and Free' hitmaker faced backlash over attacking the media mogul's longtime pal Gayle King.
Just moments after 50 Cent posted LA Times footage of Winfrey falling during her 2020 Vision Tour on stage (which she blamed on "wrong shoes") over the weekend, the duo launched an expletive-laced commentary on Instagram, Fox News reports.
"What the f--- happen here," wrote 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, before joking that "Michael Jackson's ghost trip her."
Meanwhile, Snoop, real name Calvin Broadus Jr., also chimed in. "Michael and Kobe blew a gust of wind… balance," he wrote.
The fall took place in the Los Angeles leg of Winfrey's cross-country tour, "Oprah’s 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus," which she describes as an effort toward making "2020 the year of transformation for you—mind, body, and spirit."
The famed talk show host later explained that she is "only a little sore" after the fall.
Snoop came under fire in February after launching an attack on 'CBS This Morning' anchor King after she brought up rape allegations against NBA legend Kobe Bryant just days after his tragic death in a helicopter crash that also claimed the lives of his young daughter and seven others.
The rapper called King crude names on Instagram, warning her to better back off "before we come get you." He then proceeded to post a series of derogatory photos and memes about her.
However, Snoop later apologized on the social media platform.
"Two wrongs don't make no right. when you're wrong, you gotta fix it," he said.
"So with that being said, Gayle King, I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off of emotions of me being angry at a question you asked. Overreacted," he continued. "I should have handled it way different than that, I was raised way better than that, so I would like to apologize publicly for the language that I used and calling you out your name and just being disrespectful."
