Last week was pretty rough for 50 Cent, who went from being praised for the hundreds of millions he’s earned over his career to having to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Now, the rap mogul is in the headlines again after accusing AT&T of being racist.


In a series of Instagram posts this weekend, 50 brought up AT&T’s past issues with racism and claimed that the company is still opposed to “urban friendly” television because they are allegedly dropping all channels from their roster that cater to Black audiences.


50 claims that AT&T has dropped STARZ from its roster of channels and that 500,000 homes across the nation will no longer be able to view his hit show, “Power,” which is STARZ’s highest rated and most successful original series, unless they switch to a different cable provider.

Well, that’s a pretty major accusation, but that’s not all that 50 had to say about AT&T. Read the rest of his posts after the cut.
