Last night, 50 Cent threw out what may go down as the worst first pitch in the history of first pitches before the Mets game against the Pirates. As you can see in the GIF above, he came nowhere close to getting his first pitch over the plate and almost managed to hit a photographer who was set up to capture his throw. It was, in a word, awful.
Fif's first pitch was so awful that, more than 12 hours after he took the mound and made the throw, people are still going in on him on Twitter. They're taking aim at his delivery, his throwing motion, and his entire legacy as a rapper based off of one first pitch that, truth be told, was supposed to be a celebration of how far he's made it as both an artist and a person.
To show you just how hard people are being on him right now, we've gathered 25 of the craziest Twitter reactions we've seen to 50 Cent's first pitch below. So much slander.
