50 Cent Criticised For Social Media Post Aimed At Floyd Mayweather
50 Cent has received backlash after he posted a mocked-up picture of Floyd Mayweather wearing a t-shirt misspelling the phrase 'I can't breathe' on social media.
The Amercian rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, has been embroiled in a bitter feud with the undefeated boxer for years.
Jackson claimed his former friend needed to return to boxing because he was running out of money back in February, while Mayweather recently admitted that he felt 'blindsided' by rapper 50 Cent's betrayal but wanted to remain friends with 'Fiddy'.
And now, in a post on Twitter, 50 Cent has used the George Floyd situation to have another jab at Mayweather.
Jackson has thrown various jibes at 'Money' in recent months, including mocking his SuperBowl outfi, but many feel he went too far with his latest post.

Not funny at all♀️- Tiara Brown (@tiarabrownbox) June 7, 2020
Mayweather Promotions fighter Yordenis Ugas voiced his displeasure on Twitter shortly after.
"He (Jackson) has never managed to overcome Floyd's greatness," Ugas wrote.
"This type (of post) is a clear example of when a person surpasses everyone in success and friends, instead of celebrating it, are full of envy.
"What a pity. In the short time you had in boxing, you ruined my bro (Yuriorkis) Gamboa's career."

Earlier this year, Mayweather told NORE's Frinks Challenge per Urban Islands that he wanted to remain friends with 'Fiddy'.
"We could have stayed friends," Mayweather explained.
"I never asked him to get a part of G-Unit or whatever he was doing, I just thought we just had a genuine friendship, that's what I thought, so it is what it is.
"I've been nothing but good to him. I'm a hundred man. I've been nothing but solid with him. I'm a solid dude man, and he know I'm a solid dude."
