King Of Shades, 50 Cent real name Curtis Jackson is famous for his unbridled tongue but should he be shot for it?
According to reports, a New York Police Department precinct Commander asked his colleagues to shoot 50 cents on sight.
This comment was allegedly made on June 7 2018 while the rapper was scheduled to attend a boxing match in the Bronx.
The officer Emanuel Gonzalez, had submitted complaints one month prior to making the ‘shoot on sight’ comment claiming that 50 Cents threatened him on Instagram.
The rapper’s comment on Instagram was ‘get the strap’, a phrase he used as a character in the series “Power”. The phrase means that drama is about to break out and which he often uses on his post on Instagram with a hashtag.
However, the comments to shoot the US rapper was not recorded by anyone and Officer Gonzalaez passed it off as a joke.
But this drew attention and is being investigated by The Internal Affairs, who handle corruption cases.
According to a spokesperson, 50 Cent has taken the threat seriously and has consulted lawyers on the matter.
The Officer in his complaint said that some of the rapper’s followers on Instagram also threatened him. The complaint was investigated but there was no charges made.
This is not the first time that the ‘Candy Shop’ rapper is getting reactions for his posts and shades but perhaps the first time he is being mortally threatened for it.
Let’s all hope that this issue dies a natural death without the actual death of someone.
