50 Cent Apologizes for Japan Tsunami Tweets


50 Cent


Realizing that his comments made light of Japan's earthquake and tsunami tragedy, the 'Candy Shop' rapper explains on Twitter, 'Some of my tweets are ignorant I do it for shock value.'

50 Cent has offered an apology for his insensitive remarks on Twitter about the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Realizing his tweets could be deemed offensive by others, the "Candy Shop" hitmaker was quick to explain, "Some of my tweets are ignorant I do it for shock value. Hate it or love it. I'm cool either way 50cent."

The 35-year-old rapper shocked many on Friday, March 11 when he made light of the nation's tragedy soon after the natural disaster story broke. In one, he tweeted, "Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my h**s from LA, Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol." In another, he mocked tsunami threat to the U.S. west coast, writing "Wave will hit 8am them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing."

Fiddy soon found himself under fire for the remarks. User @404Pirate tweeted, "50 cent is insensitive and stupid! How can anyone make fun out of such disaster?!!!!! Smh." Another Twitter user @_nathy wrote, "Congratulations, 50 Cent: YOU'RE AN A--HOLE FOR MOCKING WHAT'S GOING ON IN JAPAN!"

Although Fiddy has acknowledged that some of his tweets were ignorant, one Hip Hop Wired reader still expressed disappointment. "I hope he donates some of his money because none of his tweets was funny & AOL reported over 10,000 people lost their lives so even though he say it was for shock value, it still was distasteful because people loss their lives," the commenter wrote. "What if he had a family member over there that was killed or knew someone over there that was killed?"

    It just goes to show you how the man thinks. Raise your hand if after you heard about the devastation in Japan, you thought, "Now some crazy white boys in california are gonna hit the beach. *(no fifty, put your's down) OKAY, NOONE! Who really think's like that? I'm glad I've never met the dude, I'm glad the only way I'd ever meet the dude.. I'd be protected by a crowd of other people at the concert. I'd make a daring escape from the prick before he'd have a chance to pick my pocket for a credit card.

    I used to really think he was musically gifted, despite his offensive homophobic lyrics but with this SUPER IGNORANT public statement I have to say I hold no more respect for him anymore. I used to think he was insensitive but now believe he is as sh***y inside is he is on the outside.
