50 Cent really is a controversial artist. The rapper creates sensation all the way he's walking his career. Not only in music industry, he also makes one in film. His upcoming movie "Get Rich or Die Tryin'" has sparked controversy among Los Angeles community leaders.

It isn't the content of the film, but the film ads, containing gun theme that stir protest. To your notice, billboards, posters and other ads for the movie depict the rapper brandishing two handguns as a promotion for the movie. Per Website AllHipHop.com reports the campaign has led to a call for a boycott from a number of organizations.

"Gun violence is one of the leading causes of death for young black males in South Central Los Angeles and across urban America. It's irresponsible for Paramount Pictures to promote and market a movie that glorifies carrying guns. Guns are weapons of mass destruction that are used to kill people." So said Najee Ali of Project Islamic Hope.

Hence, the group is demanding that Paramount Pictures remove the film ads, while Paramount representatives have not yet commented on the demand.
