The 'In Da Club' rapper has been slammed for his controversial comments while speaking to Lil Wayne about dating "exotic" women.
50 Cent is facing major backlash online for his comments on dating "exotic" women and his subsequent commentary on black women.
50 Cent claims Eminem is the "best rapper in the world"
During an interview with fellow rapper Lil Wayne, the 45-year-old 'Many Men' rapper - who is thought to have split from his girlfriend Cuban Link - spoke about his experience dating women he perceives "exotic" and the reaction he says he received.
"That sh** is exotic! This sh** looks a whole different from the sh** you see in the neighbourhood," said Fif. "In some kind of way it's interesting to explore. But they get mad, they get angry. 'How did you end up with this motherf***er?' I'm like, 'Huh?'"
Wayne, 37, chuckled at Fifty's comments, which have been labelled "disrespectful" and "disgusting". Both men are facing intense backlash online for their behaviour.
"I am disgusted af that two BLACK black men would sit there and laugh and the audacity to speak on black women like this," wrote one.
"How can wayne sit there laughing and akikiki when he has a “regular black” beautiful daughter ? both men are disappointing af!" said another.
"We really don’t care if you want something “exotic” or “foreign”. But there is no need to disrespect us. Especially when Black Women are the ones in the streets fighting for you. It’s unfortunate that black women always have to go the extra mile to prove our worth. When some of these so called “black kings” self-hate run so deep. I’m over it," said one user.
"Man ya'll gotta stop hating on blk women. Ya'll blessed with the most beautiful, exotic women on earth and don't appreciate bruh," said another.
