50 Cent's Hateful, Homophobic Tweets
I'm pissed and need to vent about the hateful, harmful, ignorant, homophobic things 50 Cent has been tweeting to his three million-plus followers. After a slew of recent gay teen suicides, including the deaths of Seth Walsh, Asher Brown and Billy Lucas, 50 Cent tweeted: "If you a man and your over 25 and you don't eat pu**y just kill your self damn it. The world will be a better place. Lol" Lol? Even if 50 Cent was unaware of these deaths when he tweeted that yesterday, it's a hateful, homophobic thing to write and it's not the first time the rapper has done something like this. Earlier this month he tweeted: "Perez Hilton calld me douchebag so I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding. wasnt his but still made me feel better." In lieu of running a photo with this post of this nasty has-been rap star, let's remember Tyler Clementi, the 18-year-old Rutgers student who jumped off the George Washington Bridge earlier this week after his roommate streamed a video of him having a sexual encounter with a man online. One way to stop the spread of homophobia? Un-follow 50 Cent and check out the great work of The Trevor Project, which runs a 24-hour suicide hotline for gay and questioning youth.
