Earlier this month, Chelsea Handler’s ex-boyfriend, rapper 50 Cent, expressed his support for the president in the upcoming election, but now appears to have done a complete 180 after the comedian called him out.
On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Handler got the rapper’s attention by saying that she’d be willing to “seal the deal in more ways than one if he changes his mind and publicly denounces Donald Trump.”
“I might be willing to go for another spin if you know what I’m talking about,” Handler told Fallon.
50 Cent did in fact backtrack on his support for Trump. “A what, another spin,” he tweeted. “F**k Donald Trump, I never liked him. For all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL @chelseahandler @jimmyfallon.”
The backtracking comes just a few weeks after 50 Cent posted a photo breaking down Democratic challenger Joe Biden’s state-by-state tax plan — Instagram marked the post as “missing context” and linked to a clarification from AP. 50 Cent wrote that the 62 percent listed for New York was too high for him.
“WHAT THE F**K! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” he remarked. “F**K NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f**king mind.”
Handler elaborated on this tweet when she was on The Tonight Show, and noted that she hadn’t heard anything directly from her ex. “He shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him, because he’s worried about his own, personal pocket book,” she said.
