50 Cent has a severe bone to select with Oprah Winfrey.
Thursday night time (Dec. 12), the rapper seemingly reignited his beef wth the media mogul after he took to Instagram to name her out over the upcoming #MeToo documentary she’s producing that may concentrate on Drew Dixon–one of many girls accusing Russell Simmons of sexual misconduct.
The movie, directed by Kirkby Dick and Amy Ziering, is described as “…a profound examination of race, gender, class and intersectionality, and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large,” in response to the Los Angeles Times.
50 Cent says Oprah solely targets alleged sexual predators who’re black males, all whereas remaining silent on white male high-profile predators.
Fiddy used Oprah’s controversial sit-down interview with Michael Jackson accusers Wade Robson and James Safechuck as one instance, and her upcoming documentary about Russell Simmons’ documentary as one other.
“I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men,” 50 wrote. “No Harvey Weinstein, No [Jeffrey] Epstein, just Micheal jackson and Russell Simmons this sh*t is sad.”
He then centered his consideration on Oprah’s BFF Gayle King, who did a primetime interview with R. Kelly earlier this yr amid renewed outrage over his alleged sexual abuse.
“Gale [sic] 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 [documentaries] are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent.”
50 adopted that publish up with one other one exhibiting a set of male celebrities who’ve been accused of sexual misconduct, declaring that solely the black males, thus far, have been jailed over rampant accusations, in contrast to their white male counterparts.
The picture confirmed Epstein, Weinsten, Kevin Spacey, and Donald Trump with the phrase “walk,” whereas Bill Cosby and Kelly’s pics had the phrase “jail” written on them.
“You think Oprah don’t notice how this sh*t playing out?” 50 requested within the publish’s caption.
50 Cent has a rocky relationship with Oprah. He sat down along with her on her “Next Chapter” present again in 2012 to squash a years-long beef that apparently began after Oprah criticized rappers over their lyrics.
50’s messages got here simply someday after Harvey Weinsten reached a $25 million settlement with dozens of his accusers. The disgraced film producer, who denies all the allegations in opposition to him, remains to be dealing with life in jail over sex-crime prices he’s dealing with in Manhattan.
Meanwhile, Russell Simmons has since taken to Instagram himself to reply to the information that Oprah is producing a documentary relating to the sexual assault allegations in opposition to him.
In his publish, Simmons not solely denies the allegations, however calls it “troubling” that Oprah has determined to “single” him out.
Simmons wrote, partially: “Dearest OPRAH, you might have been a shining gentle to my household and my group. Contributing a lot to my life that I couldn’t record a fraction of it on this weblog. I’ve given you the present of meditation and the groundbreaking ebook ‘THE POWER OF NOW’ we bonded to say the least.
“This is why it’s so troubling that you just select me to single out in your current documentary. I’ve already admitted to being a playboy extra (appropriately titled as we speak “womanizer”) sleeping with and placing myself in additional compromising conditions than nearly any man I do know.
“Not 8 or 14 thousand like Warren Beatty or Wilt Chamberlain, but still an embarrassing number. So many that some could reinterpret or reimagine a different recollection of the same experiences. Please note that ur producers said that this upcoming doc was to focus ONLY on 3 hand chosen women.”

Dearest OPRAH,you might have been a shining gentle to my household and my group. Contributing a lot to my life that I couldn’t record a fraction of it on this weblog.Ihave given you the present of meditation and the groundbreaking ebook”THE POWER OF NOW “we bonded to say the least. This is why it’s so troubling that you choose me to single out in your recent documentry. I have already admitted to being a playboy more (appropriately titled today “womanizer”) sleeping with and placing myself in additional compromising conditions than nearly any man I do know. Not eight or 14 thousand like Warren Beatty or Wilt Chamberlain, however nonetheless an embarrassing quantity. So many who some may reinterpret or reimagine a distinct recollection of the identical experiences. Please be aware that ur producers stated that this upcoming doc was to focus ONLY on Three hand chosen girls. I’ve refused to get within the mud with any accusers, however let’s acknowledge what i’ve shared. I’ve taken and handed 9 3-hour lie detector checks (taken for my daughters), that these tales have been handed on by CNN, NBC, BUZZFEED, NY POST, NY MAG, AND OTHERS. Now that you’ve reviewed the details and also you SHOULD have discovered what I do know; that these tales are UNUSABLE and that “hurt people hurt people”. Today I obtained a name from an outdated girlfriend from the early 1980s which signifies that they’re utilizing my phrases/proof in opposition to me and their COMMITMENT/ (all the claims are 25 to 40 years outdated) It is inconceivable to show what occurred 40 years in the past, however in my case proof exists of what didn’t occur, largely signed letters from their very own mother and father, siblings, roommates, band members, interns, and within the case of two of your Three accusers,their very own phrases of their books. Shocking how many individuals have misused this essential highly effective revolution for relevance and cash. Maybe you must title your documentary “FLAVOR OF LOVE”!? In closing, I’m responsible of exploiting, supporting, and making the soundtrack for a grossly unequal society, however i’ve by no means been violent or pressured myself on anybody. Still I’m right here to assist assist a obligatory shift in energy and consciousness. Let us get to work on uplifting humanity and put this second and outdated narrative behind us
