Queer people are literally dying on the streets, but 50 Cent still thinks it’s funny to make gay jokes for clout

Curtis Jackson 50 Cent homophobia

50 Cent is spending the lockdown posting homophobic memes to Instagram.

The rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, revived some beef with fellow musician Young Buck – deciding that more gay jokes are what’s needed in the world right now.

Rapper thinks homophobic jokes are funny in 2020.

Sharing a photo of a Pride parade, he wrote: “?Hey is 2020 gay pride parade cancelled? ?asking for a friend, ?young Buck. LOL.”

It’s a long-running trend for the rapper to make posts insinuating that Young Buck is gay or dating a transgender person for laughs.

The relentless online trolling campaign kicked off last year, when he wrote: “Young Buck is almost ready to drop his album. He worked hard on this project, I told him his personal choice to date a tran sexual [sic] will confuse some of his core audience but with the support of the LGBT+ he should be fine.”

In another post, he wrote: “If your [sic] in a relationship with a tranny your [sic] gay. That’s a boy, boy!”

He has also stooped lower than simply slinging mud at another grown adult – also targeting the 12-year-old daughter of NBA player Dwyane Wade, who is transgender.

50 Cent dug up a picture of Dwyane Wade at a fashion show with since-convicted sex offender R Kelly, with a speech bubble from Kelly saying: “Heard you had a daughter now?”

He captioned the meme: “LOL, now some funny s**t.”

50 Cent has always been like this.

The rapper has long-standing form when it comes to what we will generously describe as extremely unsavoury jokes about gay people.

In a 2010 spat with gay celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, he tweeted: “Perez Hilton calld [sic] me douchebag so I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding. Wasn’t his but still made me feel better.”

The same year, 50 Cent suggested that men who do not sleep with women should “just kill” themselves.

He wrote: “If you are a man and your [sic] over 25 and you don’t eat p***y just kill yourself damn it. The world will be a better place.”

In 2015, he complained about “gay stuff” on the TV show Empire.

He wrote: “There are 3 million less viewers who tuned into last night’s Empire episode! Did you watch it? We could not take the extra gay stuff or celebrity stuff last night!”
