50 Cent is certainly one of the most influential names in the hip-hop world. His brand value is a lot, as he has his name in many mediums outside of just music. 50 Cent recently reacted to NYC pastor getting robbed of $1 million worth of jewelry during church service.
During a recent live-streamed church service, a prominent Brooklyn pastor was robbed. Bishop Lamor Whitehead and his wife reportedly had more than $1 million worth of jewelry stolen by masked gunmen, according to the NYPD. As someone who never holds back on his opinions, 50 Cent responded to the widely publicized church robbery on Twitter.
👀 Meanwhile back in New York, they robbing the church while it’s in service. 🤷🏽♂️WTF
Bishop Whitehead was a prime target in the theft at the Leaders of Tomorrow International Church because he had a reputation for flaunting his wealth through jewels and other priceless stuff. There were no reported injuries during the robbery. Whitehead reported that after being pursued by the three masked guys outside the church, they got into a white Mercedes-Benz and changed into new clothes.
The case has not yet resulted in any arrests. It sounds like Whitehead won’t alter his flashy purchases and luxury attire despite being a victim of an armed robbery. Check out the viral robbery video and 50 Cent’s candid reaction to it below.
