- Not only did he face a lot of backlash from his fans, but he also got a response from Chelsea Handler who slams 50-cent for his opinions.
- Chelsea wrote, “You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend”.
- Chelsea and 50-cent dated each other briefly during 2010 before a public split.
The current state of the country has been in turmoil for the past few weeks since the elections have been on the horizon. Apart from all the controversies surrounding Donald Trump’s conduct during his appearances, celebrities around the world seem to be garnering attention for all the wrong reasons. First, it was Chris Pratt who got serious backlash for expressing his political opinions and had to be rescued by his fellow peers at Marvel.
And now it’s 50-cent. You would think that someone who has been in the industry for as long as 50 cent has, they would be familiar with racism and the importance of taking a stand for the right things. Despite this and the current state of the black community in America, 50-cent seems to be following Kanye West’s footsteps instead.
Apprantly 50-cent has decided to vote for Donald Trump during these elections.
And Chelesea Handler was not happy about this.
Chelsea has always been a vocal comedian in the mainstream circuit who has rarely been affected by political correctness. Naturally, when she heard that her ex, 50 cent was going to support Donald Trump she was not happy. Chelsea Handler slams 50-cent and expresses her opinion by saying that he is no longer her favorite ex.
For the unintitated, 50 cent criticized Joe Biden’s tax plans and said…
Yeah, i don’t want to be 20cent. 62% is a very, very,bad idea50- Cent via Twitter
He then further said…

His tweet was soon responded to by Chelsea who wrote..
You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriendChelsea Handler replying to 50-Cent via Twitter
If you don’t know then Chelsea and 50 cent had dated back in 2010. Chelsea appeared on the Howard Stern show after the split and talked to lengths about her relationship with 50 cent before she slams him for his political opinions today. According to the conversation, the split happened due to one of 50-Cent’s exes named Ciara. Ciara apparently came to Chelsea’s talk show and said to her…
[Fifty Cents] called me to tell me something about her like she still calls him all the time, and she still tells him that she loves him or something.Ciara
Chelsea obviously was not amused by this and responded by saying…
I’m at my job, and I go ‘Curtis, honestly this is like eighth grade s**t. Why are you telling me this? This girl is coming on the show tomorrow, and now I have to look at her and think you guys have some weird thing going on or had going on,Chelsea Handler
She then explained that the phone call after this between the two was the last straw for her which resulted in the split.
