On Saturday, the hip-hop mogul took to social media to highlight Brown's impressive record sales: The message appeared to be a screenshot of a tweet that read in part: "@chrisbrown has now sold 69.5M singles in the US, making him the 7th best selling singles artist of all time."
Fif captioned the image with a bold statement, declaring Brown a better artist than Jackson. He also made a reference to the latter's longstanding molestation allegations because, well, that's just what 50 does.
"CB better then MJ to me now," he wrote. "🤔I can’t believe mike wanted to touch the little boys booty.🤦♂️what the fuck man."
The post, which has since been deleted on Instagram but remains up on Twitter, drew polarizing reactions. Some followers co-signed the statement, while others criticized 50 for taking a shot at the late artist.
You can read some of the responses below.
50 has addressed Michael Jackson's sexual abuse allegations during a 2014 interview hot Hot 97.
"Something's not right ... Like when they say Michael Jackson touched the kids, I didn't have to be there to feel like Michael Jackson touched the kids!" he said. "You don't get accused of that like once or twice! Like two or three times! People don't just show up at your door and say, 'You touched my kid's butt!'"
