50 Cent gets a lot of backlash for insensitive Michael K. Williams posts. “Damn if you didn’t see Raising Kanan check it out that fentanyl is no joke, killing the clientele. RIP michael k. williams,” 50 wrote on Instagram post.
50 cent is so petty like wow….I’m not surprised but it just confirms that he has zero decency or rather no empathy for people. Idk if it’s because he got sh*t 9 times and lived to tell the story but he’s truly chaotic
