50 Cent Lashes Out at STARZ Over ‘Power:’ ‘What Does Your Network Mean?’
If there is one thing we know about 50 Cent, it’s that he will say exactly what he feels on social media, no matter how contentious his point of view.
Most recently, 50 took to Instagram with a complaint.
“If the biggest show on your network doesn’t mean anything, what does your network mean STARZ?” he captioned on IG. The straightforward statement served as a caption to a collage of the gun-toting character Kanan Stark, played by 50 in the series.
The sudden threat to leave the show, or take it elsewhere, comes after Sunday’s episode that saw the death of two major characters and was supposed to include additional storylines and be split into two parts. But Starz didn’t agree to extend the episode order, which forced the Power team to have to sacrifice some important story elements. The incredibly popular show is in its fourth season at Starz and is the highest rated series on the network.
This isn’t the first time the rapper-actor-producer has let his opinions be known via social media, and it probably won’t be the last. In December, he took to Instagram to express his unhappiness with the lack of nominations for Power at the Golden Globes. He also poked fun at P Diddy, on the Gram, when the music mogul released a clip from his new documentary, dancing in his underwear, “Look at this crazy motherf**ker man. Whatever he took, don’t give me that sh*t. LOL”
Power airs on STARZ on Sundays at 9pm PDT.
