Amidst His Legal Woes, 50 Cent Announces He’s Quit Instagram
50 Cent had a bumpy 2015, and the beginning of his 2016 isn’t looking so smooth either. After filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, a judge then questioned the validity of his financial woes when Mr. Jackson posted a photo of himself sitting next to stacks of money. The Power executive was forthcoming with the courts admitting the money was fake and a lot of his luxury cars were rented.
Yet despite reaching an agreement with creditors, which will allow him to pay back only 3/4 of his debt, the Queens native took to Instagram early Friday morning (March 11) to post several photos ranting about being treated differently in the courts due to his celebrity status.
When a judge reads a prepared statement to start proceedings to state they treat everyone the same in court. You should be concerned, I already new I would be treated differently. They know the difference between chapter 11 and chapter 7 they just never saw anyone from HipHop culture use it. #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #thisimageiscourtapporved
While using black-and-white photos of the homeless to illustrate his frustration, 50 Cent didn’t hold back his anger at what he believes has been an unfair mistreatment.
“When a judge reads a prepared statement to start proceedings to state they treat everyone the same in court, you should be concerned,” 50 Cent said.
I have millions of dollar in my company’s, the court knows this. I was accused of committing fraud with nothing but a IG photo. I can careless what these people think of me but it’s not right. Now someone from secret service is asking if prop money was counter fitted. How the fuck would I know that shit head? Smh #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #thisimageiscourtapporved

All of 50’s ranting led up to his final post, which indicated he will no longer run his own Instagram account in hopes to reduce his own legal woes and in essence, stay out of trouble.
After his announcement, comments ranged from “I’ll miss you” to many asking if they could have the job of managing his social media. If Mr. Jackson is staying off Instagram to reduce his legal problems, smart move, but if we know Fif, this may not last too long.
