Rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson III attends JCPenney and Michael Strahan’s launch of Collection by Michael Strahan on September 30, 2015 in New York City.

*A rep for 50 Cent is now claiming the rapper didn’t see the homophobic comment made about “Empire” in an item he reposted about the show’s dip in ratings last week.

As previously reported, 50 shared a post that blamed the ratings hit on an overload of celebrity guests and excessive “gay stuff.”

50’s rep tells TMZ the rapper deleted the post once he saw the homophobic comments attached to it. The rep says the comments were “not a reflection of his views at all.”
