AceShowbiz - Benzino is calling for a fight. After a few back-and-forths with 50 Cent on social media, the former star of "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" challenged the "In Da Club" rapper to a celebrity boxing match.
"Let's throw those right there," the TV personality said while showing off his hands to the camera. "Listen, man. You want to beat man about things, man? Step in the ring, because that's [where] men settle their differences. F**k all that internet s**t. Step in the ring."
50 Cent has yet to respond to the challenge. However, he kept dissing Benzino online by posting a screenshot of a tweet from Shauna Brooks, a trans actress who was allegedly in a relationship with Benzino.
"My intent is NEVER to 'out' any1 but MY truth is always T while it's PAINFUL to relieve PUBLICLY... I'm TIRED of men LOVING girls like us ONLY behind closed doors & treating us as if we're disposable when it's NO longer convenient," it read. "They want you to be their toy on their time."
The beef between the two started after 50 Cent insinuated that Benzino is gay in a homophobic remark. On April 13, the Queens native wrote alongside a clip in which Benzino talked about his sexual preferences, "Young Buck, Benzino just embrace who you are but don't pat nobody butt when they score a basket. fool. Hahaha, Nah. FOR REAL! PUNK."
In the said video, the father of Coi Leray could be heard admitting that he "[loves] porn." The "Rock the Party" rapper went on to say, "I don't watch trans porn. I don't watch trans porn, but that's just me. You know what I'm sayin'?"
In a separate post, 50 Cent added a clip which seemed to be a leaked phone conversation between Benzino and Shauna. In it, Benzino explained why it could "look bad" for him to be seen with a trans woman.
Benzino later responded by writing on his Story, "Keep pushing my buttons boy @50cent." He added, "You not getting anymore Crab Trap hook ups," with a series of laughing emojis. He also reposted 50 Cent's homophobic post and wrote over it, "Hey f**k you @50cent."
