50 Cent is certainly one of the most influential names in the hip-hop world. He received heavy criticism for his unexpected presence during the Super Bowl LVI Pepsi Halftime Show back in February this year. 50 Cent has finally responded to those who dubbed him “fat.”
50 recently reacted to his body-shamers during a recent visit to 97.9 The Box in Houston, Texas. He said that the jokes about his alleged weight gain were highly exaggerated. Fifty even stood up to show he’s more fit than fat.
They said I was fat at the Super Bowl. I’m bigger than I was in the original [‘In Da Club’] video, but damn, I ain’t fat! After the Super Bowl, I’ve been hungry since, man. I’ve been hungry, I’ve been getting it off.
50 Cent performed his 2003 hit song “In Da Club” during the Super Bowl Halftime Show. He was hanging upside down in a white tank top, just like in the song’s music video. Immediately, the fat jokes started to circulate on social media.
Surprisingly, 50 accepted the jabs after the show and posted a picture of D12 rapper Bizarre hanging upside down in the band’s 2004 “My Band” video with the remark, “Who the fv-k did this?” When images of his dramatic 54-pound weight loss for the 2011 movie All Things Fall Apart reappeared on social media, 50 Cent previously addressed his weight.
