50 Cent has once again taken to mocking LGBTQ people on his Instagram page.
After it was reported that actress Halle Berry was backing out of playing a trans man in an upcoming film, the rapper shared a headline about the news with his 26 million followers, along with the caption: “You wanted to do what? Why? Oh my God. So if I still think you’re beautiful. I’m gay a** a MF. No. Next idea.”
The implication here, of course, is that if a straight, cisgender person is attracted to a trans person, that somehow makes them gay.
But this isn’t the first (or second, or third, or fourth…) time 50 Cent has made transphobic or homophobic remarks on social media.
In February, he went after Dwyane Wade’s 12-year-old daughter, who had recently come out as trans.
In 2015, he complained that Empire, Lee Daniels’ acclaimed LGBTQ-inclusive series about a hip-hip music company, had too much “extra gay stuff.”
In 2014, he alleged Diddy, Rick Ross, and ex-record exec Steve Stout were in a same-sex relationship together.
And then there’s this tweet from 2010 that’s still up on his Twitter feed:
If you a man and your over 25 and you don't eat pu**y just kill your self damn it. The world will be a better place. Lol
