Chelsea Handler Criticized 50 Cent for His Trump Support, Saying She Had to Remind Him ‘That He Was a Black Person’

Chelsea Handler on The View


The comedienne Chelsea Handler was one of those to criticize 50 Cent. The way she did it – by bringing up his race – caused some blacklash. “Shoutout to Chelsea Handler for reminding 50 Cent that he is Black. I’m sure he really needed that reminder from a pasty white racist liberal woman,” wrote one woman on Twitter.

Handler is the ex girlfriend of 50 Cent, according to Fox News, which quoted her as saying:

So he doesn’t want to pay 62 percent in taxes because he doesn’t want to go from ’50 Cent’ to ’20 Cent’ and I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook.

She made the comments on Fallon Tonight. She also tweeted at 50 Cent, writing, “You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend.”

50 Cent responded to Handler on Twitter, writing, “Man facepalming oh my God this is effecting my love life now. @chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don’t let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl. #starzgettheapp.”

Handler then responded to 50 Cent again, this time by using expletives. She wrote, “Hey f–ker! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, f–ker! Remember?” She has frequently criticized the president in the past.

Some people didn’t like her comment. “Wow, just wow, I don’t even know where to begin to unpack that. Maybe 50 cent is better off without you,” wrote one man on her Twitter thread. However, other people criticized 50 Cent, with one man writing on the thread, “Maybe 50 always just cared about $, doesnt care if democracy dies or ppl get disappeared in unmarked vehicles or Russia and China take over as world superpowers while America drowns in debt, poisoned air and 0 healthcare. Mbe Trumpism let’s us know which of us prefer $ over ppl?”
