50 Cent Continues To Use Michael K. Williams’ Death To Promote ‘Power’ Amid Backlash
Curtis James Jackson III, also known as 50 Cent, is under fire for posting insensitive post about the sudden death of a popular actor Michael K. Williams. The rapper reportedly used the tragic death of ‘The Wire’ actor to promote his Starz series, Power Book III: Raising Kanan.
As per the deleted post,
Damn if you didn’t see Raising Kanan check it out that fentanyl is no joke, killing the clientele. RIP michael k. williams.
Surprisingly, 50 also misspelled the name of Emmy nominee actor in his bizarre tribute post. Besides, the rapper also added some inappropriate hashtags on the post that really made people angry.
He wrote #bransoncognac, #lecheminduroi, and #bottlelover to promote his own alcohol brand. That said, the cause of death of Michael K. Williams is not confirmed officially.
Unfortunately, 50 still holds a grudge against a dead man. When he deleted his first post, he did not stop himself from writing another post. 50 wrote in the second deleted post,
Don’t ever try to understand me i’m different. I don’t do all the fake love s**t.
Fans are not appreciating 50 Cent’s marketing gimmick
Fans are not amused by 50 Cent’s marketing stunt at all. They assume that the rapper is misusing the death of Williams for his own personal gains. They have called 50 Cent insensitive.

One user even called him a cruel human being who does not respect other people,
50 Cent is a piece of garbage. He is a horrible and nasty human being. His post about Michael K. Williams was so offensive and gross.

Another user termed ‘The Wire’ as one of the best TV series ever produced in the Television industry,
I see @50cent still upset his shows can’t hold a candle to what Michael K Williams has done. The Wire is considered the best tv series of all time while 50s shit is basically Tyler Perry shit

Fued between 50 Cent and Michael K. Williams
The entertainment world already knows that 50 Cent and Michael K. Williams had differences over the potential assault of James Rosemond, Jr, AKA Jimmy Henchman. According to 50, Rosemond was reportedly assaulted but Williams categorically refused his claims.
As a result, 50 Cent showed his anger by sharing a post mocking Omar Little, Williams’s memorable role in ‘The Wire’ TV series. He also warned Williams to mind his own business previously. In short, the two were not considered the best of friends by the entertainment world.
Fans have rightly called 50 Cent, insensitive or cruel human being since his actions tell a lot about his own personality and character. Even after the death of Williams, he has been trying to make the most of the situation.
We join fans in extending our condolences to the Williams’ family.
