50 Cent is horrified by Joe Biden’s proposed tax plan.
With the US elections just around the corner, candidates are making their last ditch attempt in order to convince voters to award them their precious ballot. Earlier this week, Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, announced his policy, which would involve those making over $400,000 a year paying 62.6% in taxes in California, 62% in New York City, 60% in New Jersey, and 58% in New York state. Suffice it to say, 50 Cent would feel the pinch.
The rapper-cum-television exec took to his Instagram to blast the proposed plan, and, to the shock of his followers, endorsed Biden’s opponent and incumbent President, Donald Trump. “WHAT THE F***! (VOTE For TRUMP) IM OUT, F*** NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway,” he wrote, “I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% of you out of ya f***ing mind.” He followed up the post by saying, “I don’t want to be 20%. 62% is a very, very bad idea. I don’t like it!”
Twitter users began calling out 50 Cent on his hypocrisy, saying that he is content to excuse Trump’s racism and vote for him if it means he can keep every cent of his fortune. Fifty’s post led to an amusing exchange with former flame, Chelsea Handler, who tweeted, “You used to be my favourite ex-boyfriend.” The Power producer replied to the comedienne, asking not to let Trump and Biden come between them, to which she responded, “I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, f***er! Remember?”
Hey fucker! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, fucker! Remember? https://t.co/uQsu7DHrRQ
