50 Cent is laughing off the body shamers.
The hip-hop mogul was mocked for his apparent weight gain ever since Sunday, when 50 made a surprise appearance alongside Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar at Pepsi’s Super Bowl LVI Halftime Show.
Despite recreating the iconic upside-down stunt from the music video of his No. 1 hit “In da Club,” at the age of 46, no less, Fif was hit with fat jokes.
And yet, it looks like 50 Cent is taking the body-shaming in stride.
On Thursday, he took to Instagram to remind haters that he can’t be shamed, using the attention to promote a line of G-Unit tank tops and headbands. “Get your G-Unit Tank tops & Headbands Now,” he tweeted.
From there, Fif took to Instagram clap back at critics who think he’s worried about his weight.
“I call this teasing me,” he wrote. “They’re just teasing me because they know i can drop the weight. That’s why i laugh with them. Fat shaming only applies when you’re ashamed of your fat. LOL.”
