AceShowbiz - 50 Cent has joined other celebrities in weighing in on the riots happening across the United States following the death of George Floyd. Fiddy took to his Instagram account to share his thought on the matter, alluding that he's upset that this happens amid a pandemic.
"This s**t is just sad," he said on Sunday, May 31 on Instagram alongside a picture of the Statue of Liberty with her hands on her head. "Well i guess we know the cure for the corona virus was racism everybody back outside mad as a mother f***er."
In another post, the "In Da Club" hitmaker posted a video of a NYPD car driving into the the protesters. "now why the f**k would he drive the car into a crowd. they gonna have a hundred law suits for this s**t," he captioned the clip.
Fans were equally shocked over the video. "Why would you drive into a crowd!? There life wasn't in danger!Pure wickedness," one follower wrote in the comment section. Another one continued, "REALLY??? WTF is wrong with cops in the US?"
However, some others insisted that the crowd was in the wrong for vandalizing the police car during the protest. "So they can attack their vehicle with malicious intent and expect to get away with it right? The cops were wrong but they are literally inciting these reactions," one noted. Denouncing the violent protesters, one other added, "They ain't out there for George, they just f***ing s**t up. Stop playing this bulls**t."
"Why should these people be destroying the cops car? He's not the bad cop that did it.. you guys don't understand how PROTEST WORK. This isn't a protest. It's a riot," someone else criticized the looting. "Hopefully a lot of the people who vandalized stores and stole get charged."
