Fifty Cent faces backlash after promoting his cognac brand in tweet about 9/11 20th Anniversary


On Saturday, millions of people in the nation and in the world were posting grief, remembrances and more on social media as it was the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks which left almost 3000 dead and thousands injured. However, one rapper, 50 Cent saw an outpouring of anger and disdain against his tweet on 9/11 as he added promotional hashtags of his cognac and wine brand which netizens found tacky and crude.


50 Cent posted a black and white photo of the second hijacked plane going towards the south tower of the World Trade Center. He said, “This day will be forever remembered, to those who lost loved ones my condolences.” He added hashtags #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi.


His blatant advertisement, on both Twitter and Instagram, in the wake of the tragic 9/11 terrorist attacks, made several Twitter users very angry. They not only considered his post to be tacky but also rude. Commenters on Twitter ripped into him and called him out for his bad taste.


One person said that every time he saw that second plane hit, he would remember to have a cognac with champagne.


Another one said that his thoughts and prayers were with the little bottles of cognac and champagne that were aboard #AA11 and #AA 77 as well as #UA175 and #UA93 on 9/11 and also added #BransonCognac to the post.


One called it the “wildest thing” the user had “seen so far in my life” while the other said that it was “the most American tweet I’ve seen.”


This is not the first time 50 Cent used a tragedy to promote his brands. When Michael K. Williams, who starred in “The Wire,” recently overdosed, the rapper had also promoted his brands. The 46-year-old rapper posted emojis of wide-open eyes, a screenshot of the exclusive report of Williams death in Brooklyn by the New York Post and promoted the Starz tv show “Power Book III: Raising Kanan” which based on his childhood in Queens, NYC.


He had also written “R.I.P. micheal k williams” He not only misspelled “The Wire” star’s name but also added hashtags promoting his wine and cognac liquor brands. He was called out by many following which he deleted the posts.
