The flurry of jabs exchanged between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather has recently caught the attention of 50 Cent. After watching McGregor call him a “bitch” during a press conference at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Thursday (July 13), 50 Cent responded back to the MMA fighter on Instagram.
“What the f–k wrong wit this white boy,” 50 wrote in response to McGregor’s comments. “You fighting Floyd not me fool. LOL.” Besides calling him a “bitch,” McGregor skewered 50 about his financial woes during his encounter with Mayweather. “You and 50 are two fake money bitches. He’s bankrupt and you’re about to be,” he said tauntingly. He added: “It should be, ’50, nah, Bentley, nah. We owe bullocks to the IRS.”
Following his initial post, 50 went on a vicious streak and strung together several captions mocking McGregor. In one of his posts, which features a FaceTime conversation between he and Mayweather, 50 guaranteed victory for his longtime friend.
“It’s 50, champ about to be 50-0, and the Little leprechaun is just the 50th Victim. Floyd said I’m a put the hand of God on that boy. LOL,” he wrote.
Recently, the G-Unit commander stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! and took credit for orchestrating the bout between Mayweather and McGregor. “I actually ran into Dana [White] when they were putting the fight together, and I told ’em go after it. I spoke to Floyd and he felt better about it,” he said.
