After saying he was planning to back President Donald Trump in the Nov. 3 election over fears that a Joe Biden administration would mean paying higher taxes, 50 Cent appears to have done a full reversal.
This change of mind comes following a harsh callout from the internet and comedian/author Chelsea Handler, who also happens to be an ex-girlfriend. Handler criticized Fiddy on Twitter, then went on The Tonight Show to break down why a vote for Trump is a bad, bad move.
"He says he doesn't want to pay 62 percent in taxes -- which, by the way, isn't a plan of Joe Biden's, that's a lie -- so he doesn't want to pay 62 percent in taxes because he doesn’t want to go from being 50 Cent to 20 Cent,” Handler told host Jimmy Fallon about the man she joked used to be her "favorite" ex. “I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump, and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook," she said.
