Let’s jump right into it, Fox News headlines ” 50 cent Tells Gays To Commit Suicide”. This deriving from a tweet he posted Thursday, here is the tweet in question “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,”. Fox News and some others blasted the story and 50 then tweeted an explanation “the other night I made a joke about a blow job. My male followers enjoyed it So I then went on to joke about women receiving the same”. Sounds like more of a public service announcement (PSA) if you will to let his male followers know women need love too. Sounds much like the media as usual took this one out of context.
I woke up to news story after story stating 50 Cent tweets gay people should kill themselves. This post would have almost been titled “Tell them how you really feel” and I would have gone hard (no pun intended) on the rapper for being so stupid. The news stories I saw lined this story up with the suicide death of the Rutgers student.
Shame on the media, and any one else whom read and agreed with the views of the news story, people whom had nothing better to do. in context assuming the tweet is a bash to being gay is a far stretch, clearly it means exactly what it sounds like (with the exception of the “kill yourself” that’s just a statement). Seriously reading this as a strike against the Gay community is just the same as your friends on Facebook assuming your recent angry post is about them, and responding as so. Grow up, it’s not always about you, either you were feeling guilty that day, or were just bored and needed some attention. Let’s be a little bit smarter, think before you act. – Vonte
