*50 Cent doesn’t like to hold back much of anything, let alone his opinion. Since joining Twitter in August, the rapper has been causing a stir.
Earlier this month, the rapper took his brazen jokes a bit too far when he retaliated against gossip blogger Perez Hilton on the social networking site. As a result, it led the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) to mount a campaign against him.
After Hilton shared a few words about 50, the rapper responded to the openly gay former athlete.
GLAAD responded to the Twitter posts. “It’s wrong to make jokes and promote violence against the gay community,” said GLAAD spokesman Rich Ferraro. “Taking down the post is not enough. We wanted him to tell his Twitter followers that what he did was wrong.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he revealed his sentiments about the offensive tweet. “Joking about violence is not funny,” Hilton said. “50 Cent should stick to what he does best, rapping, and leave the funny business to comedians.”
