Rapper 50 Cent has attacked media mogul Oprah Winfrey over her Russell Simmons documentary.
Earlier this year, Simmons came under attack from multiple women accusing him of sexual assault. She also sided with the two accusers who claimed that that the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson had sexually assaulted them when they were kids on the damning Michael Jackson documentary called Leaving Neverland, for which she received a lot of backlash.
50 Cent’s issue is that she is doing another documentary on accusers of another black man, while there are several white men facing similar accusations like Harvey Weinstein.
“I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men,” 50 wrote. “No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Micheal jackson and Russell Simmons this sh*t is sad. Gale hit R Kelly with the death blow documentary. Every time I hear Micheal jackson I don’t know whether to dance or think about the little boys butts. These documentary’s are publicly convicting there targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent.”
This isn’t the first time that 50 Cent is speaking on Michael Jackson’s accusations. The rapper/actor previously got into it with the Jackson family and fans of MJ online who went after him for some previous scathing remarks about the late king of pop.
On Thursday, 50 Cent made a surprising statement about Harvey Weinstein reaching a $25 million settlement with his accusers. Fif called the settlement agreement a money grab.
The upcoming film which has been executive produced by Oprah for Apple+ TV, is a profound examination of race, gender, class and intersectionality, and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large.”
It was announced that the documentary will debut at the Sundance Film Festival in early 2020.
