“Stunt 101”: Bankruptcy Judge Blasts 50 Cent, Says No More Instagram Stunts

(AllHipHop News) Yesterday (April 6) a Connecticut bankruptcy judge roasted 50 Cent in bankruptcy court for making fun of the court process with this social media posts that glorify his wealth.

The case stems from the drama surrounding Rick Ross’ baby mama and the $7 million case against the Queens rapper in Manhattan Supreme Court.

“There is nothing funny going on here. This is all very serious business,” Judge Ann Nevins said according to New York’s PageSix.  “I am not trying to impede on anyone’s right to exercise free speech. But I would appreciate it if we can keep the tone of this case very serious.”

“You have all been advised. This is not funny.”

In addition to altering the tone of the case, the Judge officially warned 50 to stay away from commenting on the bankruptcy case via his social media sites.

“I want to make this very clear, that I am discouraging the use of social media to comment on this case, especially when parties are in a courtroom or in the conference room.”

So does this mean that 50 won’t be “teaching us how to stunt” on IG anymore?

We never know with 50 Cent, but he appeared to be assuming a more compliant stance in the case when Judge Nevins confronted him about his social media.

Fifty backed down on the IG posts saying he had changed his ways,  “Instagram? Nah, that’s not me anymore,”

It was just last Summer the 50 filed for bankruptcy just a few days after Rick Ross’ baby mama Lastonia Levinston won her judgement.

More news as the case proceeds on.

    Despite what the judge ordered,this is 50 we’re talking about. He’s going to find a way to be heard and seen.

    Now he’s getting verbally spanked by Judges lol. “Stop being a brat Curtis” lmao. This must be some sort of record for L’s in a year. Countdown for the stans and their “50 a boss/ fif do what he want/ fif a beast” nonsense.

    I don’t really get the judges ruling he’s a entertainer. They pose with money and props all the time.its his entertainer image. His social media posts is no different than making a music video. Does that mean in his music videos or movies he can’t pose rich and flaunt money in his songs? Makes no sense at all

        Not a Stan he’s a entertainer tho…actor and rapper

        Ok…. But 50 went to the courts. The courts didn’t go to him. And at the foundation of bankruptcy is the fact that we are all “supposed” to be citizens on the same level. His fame should not give him special privileges above everyday citizens in bankruptcy court. Sorry. He ain’t superman. No matter what he has folks believing.

        I’m not saying he’s superman my point is spot of celebrities bankrupt or not use their instagram or media to promote things. Under the judges logic I guess he can’t perform music videos or act in any roles suggesting he has money? Where does the judge draw the line with a entertainer

        Bankruptcy doesnt mean you are broke obviously he not.

    I am not a 50 fan. But this just goes to prove what Malcolm X said years ago. It doesn’t matter how much you make, you can be a doctor but in the end they will still think of you as a n!!ger. Now he’s being put in his place by being told he can’t even be a rapper anymore, which I guess I should be happy about but white performers aren’t put through this.
