50 Cent mocks tsunami disaster

2011-03-15 09:58
Los Angeles – Controversial rapper 50 Cent has caused an outrage after tweeting about the natural disaster in Japan on Friday.

Unlike most celebrity tweets that conveyed sympathy and shock, 50 Cent took to Twitter to crack jokes about the situation, reports The Huffington Post.

"Wave will hit 8am them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing," he first tweeted on Friday morning.

Later in the day he tweeted again saying: "Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoe's from LA, Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol."

Only later did the rapper apparently experience a change of heart, writing that everyone should pray for those who have lost their loved ones.  

"Nah this is nuts but what can anyone do about it. Let's pray for anyone who has lost someone. Who have lost their loved ones."

His commiseration however did not last long.

"Man they made a movie about all this 2012 now you think that was a lucky guess," 50 tweeted a few hours later.

As a defence against criticism he finally claimed: "Some of my tweets are ignorant I do it for shock value. Hate it or love it. I'm cool either way 50cent."

    What a moron.

  • JohnnyWotten - 2011-03-15 10:54

    His jokes affect the people in Japan no more than the "Thinking of the people of Japan" posts on Facebook and Twitter do. I assume everybody that's raging so hard about it on here has donated money to aid organisations?

    What else can you expect?

  • Deon - 2011-03-15 23:42

    Can't see what he did wrong. What he said doesn't mean he doesn't care about the tragedy in Japan. He is a decent human being.

      Are you for real?!?

  • Susannomore - 2011-03-16 06:33

    What an IDIOT! Unfortunalty, our youngsters insist on following him. Wonder what his reactions would have been if this was his home town?

  • mlh@24.com - 2011-03-16 09:04

    I have NEVER understood the reasoning for jokes about human tragedies!! And PLEASE dont tell me, as some well-known people have said, that "oh well, we need to laugh at ourselves' or "lighten up-life's so serious..."! RUBBISH! THESE ARE HUMAN LIVES! SOMEONE'S MOTHER, FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER, FRIEND!! SICK flipping world we live in with people who have this type of mindset!!
