AceShowbiz - 50 Cent was called out by Naturi Naughton, one of the main stars on his Starz crime drama television show "Power". The 35-year-old actress was not impressed with a meme posted by the rapper on his Instagram. The image seemingly made fun of her hairdo.
It featured a "before" image from the show with her and onscreen husband Omari Hardwick having an argument and an "after" picture that showed a cropped pic of her from a recent visit to the Capitol. Taken from her Instagram, it showed her flashing a big smile in an animal-print suit and the fiercest face-lift high ponytail. "POWER never ends, Ghost f**ked up the edges. LOL," 50 Cent wrote in the caption of the meme.
Naughton didn't comment on his post but responded on her Instagram Story, calling the rapper "mean." She wrote, "Don't I make you look good every Sunday night?" Letting him know that she was hurt, she added face-palm and sad-face emojis.
50 Cent quickly wrote a public apology on his page. "Yes you do a great job on the show @naturi4real. I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings," he penned. Although he regretted his insensitive post, the meme hasn't been taken down and remains live on his social media.
"Power" debuted in 2014 and is currently in its sixth season. It follows a drug dealer who pursues legitimate business interests. Despite its high ratings at Starz, the show will not return for a seventh installment.
Co-creator 50 Cent recently slammed CEO of Comcast for "ruining" the show. He told his followers, "This is the guy f**king up (Power)over at @Comcast for no reason Brian Roberts, mother f**ker look like he been pushed around his whole life. He need to chill out, go to a golf course or sit his a** down some where."
While the original series will soon end, a spin-off titled "Power Book 2: Ghost" is in the works with Mary J. Blige expected to play one of the lead roles. "This is probably the most exciting thing that's going to happen to me this year," she said earlier this year. "I've been a fan of 'Power' since the very beginning, and I want to thank Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent for starting this conversation with me."
