Royce Da 5’9 Calls Out 50 Cent For Apologizing To Madonna But Not Lil Kim
50 Cent has a knack for antagonizing his peers on social media. Whether he’s trolling his former G-Unit artist Young Buck or clowning Lil Kim, no one is off limits. But Royce Da 5’9 has a question for the ornery television mogul.
Days after 50 Cent roasted Madonna for her sultry Instagram photo shoot, he apologized to the Material Girl in a since-deleted Twitter post, saying in part, “I’m sorry I did not intend to hurt your feelings. I don’t benefit from this in anyway I said what I thought when I saw the picture because of where I had seen it before I hope you accept my apology.”
Meanwhile, Royce wants to know why Madonna gets an apology when Lil Kim doesn’t. 50 Cent has publicly ridiculed the Queen Bee’s appearance multiple times, comparing her to an owl and Lubdan, the troll-looking character from the 1993 comedy horror film Leprechaun.
On Friday (December 3), the Grammy Award-nominated MC shared an Instagram video with the caption, “A message to 2 of our GOATS, Respectfully… @50cent x @lupefiasco R.I.P. The Great Virgil Abloh.”
He continued in the video, “My brother 50 Cent, who is one of our kings, if I’m a young person coming from another genre or come from another walk of life, and I’m following the way things are right now, I would think Madonna is worthy of an apology, but Lil Kim is not. That’s ain’t the message we want to send, is it? Nah, that’s not the message we want to send.”
Madonna originally shared a series of seductive photos to her Instagram account on November 25, which included a shot of the 63-year-old pop icon sprawled out facedown under a bed in nothing but fishnet stockings and high heels.
50 Cent evidently found this hilarious and re-shared the photo with the caption, “Yo this is the funniest shit! LOL. That’s Madonna under the bed trying to do like a virgin at 63. she shot out, if she don’t get her old ass up. LMFAO.”
Par for the course, the post was removed from 50 Cent’s feed but not before Madonna sank her teeth into him. Shortly after 50 Cent’s post started making the rounds, the Grammy Award winner shared a photo of herself with the Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ rapper from 2003 to her Instagram Stories.
“Here is 50 Cent pretending to be my friend,” she wrote. “Now you have decided to talk smack about me! “I guess your new career is getting attention while trying to humiliate others. The least elevated choice you could make as an artist or an adult. You’re just jealous you won’t look as good as me or have as much fun when you are my age!”
