50 Cent is making news on social media again. The rapper took to Instagram to drag actor Jussie Smollett after a judge recently dismissed Smollett’s motion to dismiss his case over a hate crime hoax.

50 posted a headline from Baller Alert regarding the case. There was a photo of Smollett with a huge smile on his face. The Get Rich or Die Trying star had some sharp words for the former Empire actor in the caption.

“Yeah he smiling but he crying inside. SMH he was trying to shine, it’s hard to shine when I’m out here.”

It isn’t the first time 50 cent has trolled another celebrity on the internet. Smollett happens to be the rapper’s latest target. The rapper has also been critical of Smollett’s performance Empire.


Jussie Smollett faces charges relating to a 2019 incident in which he allegedly faked a hate crime. His attorney also claimed his client’s rights were being violated. The motion was dismissed by the judge, and his disorderly conduct trial will begin next month.

The 39-year-old actor has not worked in film or television since the incident became public. He was fired from Empire after the show wrapped up its fifth season.
