Twitter can be a bit of a dangerous thing…sometimes someone could say something and they don’t realize how bad it really is.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Apparently that’s what happened with rapper 50 Cent, when he wrote a few choice texts about the aftermath of Japan’s earthquake and tsunami.
The rapper took to Twitter Friday while the U.S. West Coast braced for a potential tsunami, writing, “Wave will hit 8am them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing.”
Two other tweets that followed also made jokes:
“Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoess from LA, Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol,”
“Its all good Till b**ches see there christian louboutins floating down da street shit gone get crazy.”
After receiving a flood of backlash, 50 got somewhat serious, saying that he tweets for the shock value:
“Nah this is nuts but what can anyone do about it. Let’s pray for anyone who has lost someone.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Some of my tweets are ignorant I do it for shock value. Hate it or love it. I’m cool either way 50cent.”
The question is, did 50 go too far?Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â At least in the end, he did somewhat apologize, unlike Gilbert Gottfried…
