Another 'Empire' Cast Member Just Ripped Into 50 Cent

Another 'Empire' Cast Member Just Ripped Into 50 Cent

He clearly messed with the wrong show.

Published September 29th

50 Cent started a war that he just can't win. After the rapper and Power star took shots at Taraji P. Henson and Vivica A. Fox on social media, the Empire stars have all been jumping to each other's defense.

Now we can add Jussie Smollet to that list. The co-star took to Instagram to share a lengthy post putting Fiddy on full blast.

“I’ve always taken the high road when you’ve said our show was too gay, was stealing the word ‘power’ in our marketing from your show, or was too whatever you felt like saying at the moment… but now you’re messing with @TarajiPHenson,” he wrote.

“What I don’t respect is how detrimental you don’t realize (or perhaps just don’t care) you are,” he continued. “Every time one of us, from Kanye to Empire (both of which who continue to win), have some success, instead [of] celebrating (or just keeping quiet) you have fallen for that classic 'All Lives' banana in the tailpipe. You can say what you want or poke fun at sexuality or who I love but guess what? You’ve never heard me disrespect a woman once.”

He added, “It’s our responsibility to protect our women. you’re in your 40s brother. It’s time to leave all childish, pettiness behind.”

#JussieSmollett calls #50cent a 'crab in a barrel' over his criticism of #Empire. @50cent responds. (@empirefox @jussiesmollett #powertv)

Well... damn.

Clearly, Fif isn't ready to lay down his arms. He responded to Jussie's eloquent remarks with a peak petty post of his own (see above).
