AceShowbiz - 50 Cent always knows how to catch attention with his social media posts. This time, the rapper caused Instagram frenzy after he posted on the photo-sharing site a picture of Bob Marley, whose face had been swapped with Fofty's face.
"No women no cry. No women no cry. LOL," Fofty captioned the edited photo, quoting lyrics from the late reggae legend's mega hit "No Women No Cry". The "In Da Club" rapper added in the comment section, "Blooodklaaaat me won far drink Branson. I don't think look works for me. Lol." He also left a grinning squinting face emoji.
Several of his friends commented on the post, including Bob's son Rohan Maley. He simply said, "You crazy bro." La La Anthony was also among those who left a comment underneath the post, dropping several face palm emojis. A lot of his followers, on the other hand, were making fun of Fofty, with many calling him Fofty Marley. There were also some who thought that the edited photo made the "Power" creator look like somebody else rather than Bob.
Someone joked, "Look like 'If Regina Hall and Joel Embiid had a baby,' " as one other said, "N***a look like a retired park basketball player." An individual said Fofty looked like Offset in the photo, while another commented, "Look like when they show the first homosapian."
The hilarious photo aside, Fofty is currently facing backlash after he was announced as one the headliners at the controversial Jeddah World Fest that was funded by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Saudi Arabia. People were enraged because the ruler of the country is behind the torture and imprisonment of women seeking greater rights.
Human Rights Foundation blasted him and other headliners through a statement that read, "These individuals constantly make public statements of support for LGBTQ+ rights, Black Lives Matter and women's rights, except, apparently, when a seven-figure check is attached. The hypocrisy is breathtaking. Principal apparently matters to them far more than principles."
Fofty has yet to respond to the backlash.
