If you follow 50 Cent on Instagram, you know there’s ample proof of Fif’s penchant for taking both subliminal and overt shots at fellow celebrities via his feed. Friday, 50 decided to target Sean “Diddy” Combs in one particularly inflammatory post.
Fif posted a picture of himself in a hospital bed surrounded by stuffed animals with a text overlay that read, “Currently recovering from pettiness.”
The aforementioned pettiness would come via 50’s caption.
“Sorry I can no longer help you guys, soon you will all be gay and happy,” 50 wrote. “You are all now left under leadership of PUFFY DADDY. Report to the nearest rainbow. #denofthieves jan19.”
You can view the entire post above. The meme has over 141,000 likes, and plenty of those who have left comments believe Fif posted it in reaction to Diddy’s appearance on the Fabolous and Jadakiss episode of N.O.R.E.’s Drink Champs podcast.
At approximately the 1:10 mark of the episode, which can be seen above, Diddy repeatedly referred to N.O.R.E. as “Daddy.” In turn, 50 Cent seems to have taken the innocuous term of endearment as an opportunity to use an anti-gay slur to go after the fellow rapper.
Fif has been taking shots at Diddy since at least 2005, after they reportedly had a disagreement over Diddy’s proposed price for 50 to buy Mase out of his old Bad Boy contract.
“He’s definitely got enough money to set everything right,” Diddy told MTV’s Shaheem Reid during a 2005 interview. “50 hasn’t called me about signing Mase. If he’s interested in signing him, we could always have a discussion. At the end of the day, I want everybody to be happy and where they want to be. But I’m available, I’m free, he’s got my number.”
Since then, 50 has gone on record in a 2014 GQ magazine interview calling Diddy “a sucker.”
In a 2015 Instagram post, 50 also joked about Diddy’s 2005 arrest for an alleged kettlebell altercation with a UCLA football coach. However despite the countless times 50 has trolled Diddy, sometimes in a playful manner, he's definitely crossed a line this time.
