    I don’t buy any apology from anyone who refers to being gay as “choosing an alternative lifestyle.” I’m sure his publicist put him up to that and if it were up to him he would have tweeted about murdering all the fags who took it the wrong way. Go away.

    I agree with the gents who have already commented: this sorry explanation doesn’t absolve him of the homophobic statements that he’s made in the past. I wonder how many booty warriors this ape met in prison? He needs to be in a fucking cage at the zoo with the other primates.

    This is the same very gay looking guy who posted his shots from working out in the extra tight tee shirt…

    Why print anything this idiot says? Does it really matter what this douche thinks? His music sucks and his pathetic need for attention makes him even creepier. Ignore the goat, it’ll wander back into the woods and get eating by wolves.

    Well that explains it all, right? One big mistake? I guess I am not his follower since I didn’t laugh. Our global society is simply too money driven and pay to much money and attention to people in show business.

    Although 50 cent has made some major missteps in the past, this was really much ado about nothing. The whole exchange was directed toward straight men, clearly.

    I guess the C-word gets blocked by Towleroad’s comment filter. LOL

    To paraphrase my censored comment… Vag, I felt a little bad for shitting on you the other day, but I appreciate you resolving me of that. Kindly go fuck yourself.

    Did this guy ever go to school? Is English not his first language? Or, is grammatical ignorance a virtue in this circle?

    Boondocks mention! Woot! Not to change the subject (but to change the subject, because this one’s a lost cause), but this is a sicker, though simpler, beat than that ducksauce streisand hit…and apparently, it was mixed specifically for one episode.

    God, I didn’t believe that his intent was to be anti-gay from jump and I thought this particular tweet was a bunch of unnecessary hype about bullshit but good Lawd, that man needs a remedial English tutor.

  11. TampaZeke says

    Oh, Mr. Cent, we remember your previous, “supportive” statements about gays when you spoke of your mom loving women.

    You said that your mom loved women and that was cool. Women with women was “cool” and “hot” but gay men? “Disgusting faggots!”

    Falling back on your record is probably not the smartest thing you could do. There again, saying/doing the smartest thing has NEVER been your style.

  12. Chitown Kev says

    Yeah, commenting about his mother being a lesbian…

    I have a cousin (who was like a brother to me at one point) who is a homophobe (i.e. he quoted Leviticus on me and the Sodom and Gomorrah story, etc., etc., ad nauseum) who has a gay son and he hides behind his son whenever I challenge him about his homophobia.

    To me, that’s really nothing more and nothing less than the “I have gay friends” bullshit.

    And it’s weak.

  13. Jeff says

    I’m pretty sensitive to homophobic comments and will almost always call them out when I hear them, but in this case I really don’t think he intended the tweet to be homophobic. He may be homophobic otherwise, but this case is better described as heteronormative. I mean, just read the original tweet. Why would you have to specific someone’s age as over 25 to count as being gay? I think his idea was that if you are that old and can’t pleasure your woman (i.e., you lack a certain amount of sexual maturity), then you ought to kill yourself — the assumption being that the men reading it are all heterosexual.

  14. Sean R says

    Gay men are also MALE as well, jeez. Male fans are not wholly heterosexual…

    50 cent: you’re digging a bigger hole for yourself – so just stop tweeting!

    Perhaps we can chip in and buy more bullets for the dude who shot him up. Just kiddin’ Fitty.

  17. Kayla says

    Firstly, Fiddy is soo funny with his semi-illiterate self, LOL

    Secondly, Fiddy is a no talent hack!

    Thirdly all the white gays on this forum,constantly threatening to boycott Fiddy, or his public offerings, please stop it. You’ve never spent a dime on this man or almost any other black entertainer ever, stop embarrassing yourselves.

    lastly, I have been praying for the death of this hip-hop bullshit for years, when will my prayers be answered?? Woe is me!!

  18. yeahisaidit says

    Ouch Kayla! Some of us, while not sticking up for fiddy, LOVE “this hip-hop shit…”

  19. Gypsy says

    Yes his mom is a lesbian, and maybe he doesnt understand and thinks people choose this life, he doesnt know that we are born this way. I think he just put his foot in his mouth, cant hate on the uneducated.

    I really like a millionaire who writes and spells on a 4th grade level.
    thank you . and fuck you.

  21. sigmund says

    I can’t believe this guy gets any attention. He is seriously the worst rapper out there right now. Justin Bieber makes him look like a complete bitch.

  22. Randy says

    50 is a dumbass. His excuse basically is that the word “man” means “straight man” unless explicitly stated otherwise.

  23. Chris says

    That’s cool if 50 Cent doesn’t like gays, I don’t like blacks.

    WOW….I don’t think any of us Black folks care!!! At least you’re an honest fag!
