Rap legend 50 Cent has laughed off his haters and claims they are only “teasing” him with fat-shaming comments after his epic 2022 Super Bowl performance.
Super Bowl LVI’s half-time show was met with enormous praise from fans, with Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blige and Kendrick Lamar headlining the performance.
Joining the ensemble Super Bowl headliners for the acclaimed performance were none other than rappers Anderson .Paak and 50 Cent.
50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, performed a rendition of chart-topper song ‘In da Club’ while hanging upside down in the same vein as the music video for his iconic 2002 track.
However, the 46-year-old American superstar was also taunted on social media over his physical appearance, with fans specifically mocking 50 Cent over his weight.
50 Cent initially laughed off the reaction to his appearance by posting a meme on Instagram of where he had been replaced with American rapper Bizarre from D12.
“Who the f**k did this?” he wrote as the caption, adding eyes and angry face emojis in his post.
The former G-Unit kingpin took to Twitter on Thursday to brush aside criticism over his physique during his stunning cameo at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
“I call this teasing me, they’re just teasing me because they know I can drop the weight,” 50 Cent tweeted.
“That’s why I laugh with them. Fat-shaming only applies when [you’re] ashamed of your fat. LOL.”

Eminem’s sensational performance of his Oscar- and Grammy-award winning track ‘Lose Yourself’ was capped off with the rap icon taking the knee.
Dr Dre has claimed that there was “no problem” with Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, taking the knee after initial reports that the NFL were against him doing it.
The Los Angeles Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals at the Super Bowl in a thrilling 23-20 victory after a last-minute touchdown from Cooper Kupp.
