(AllHipHop News) 50 Cent is known to troll damn near anyone on social media. The man born Curtis Jackson recently caught heat for dragging the late Michael Jackson.
Fiddy compared the King of Pop to modern R&B star Chris Brown by bringing up the sexual abuse allegations against Jackson. After MJ’s daughter, Paris Jackson, publicly responded to 50, the Hip Hop mogul wrote, “Why am I the bad guy, I understand how you feel Paris, but does anyone care about how the little boys butts feels.”
AllHipHop caught up with TJ Jackson. MJ’s nephew and former 3T member had some words for 50 Cent and what he perceives as the 44-year-old entertainer’s immaturity.
“I loved ‘In da Club’ and some other 50 Cent songs, but I lost a lot of respect for him. A lot of respect, for many reasons. I just don’t think it was cool to attack my uncle without doing any research on the truth,” said TJ. “Then for him to attack my younger cousin who has to deal with all this, is even more immature and more disgusting. Hopefully, he’ll mature and see more of a respectful side, but it is what it is.”
On 50’s comments about “boys butts,” TJ added, “I think it’s silly, stupid, insensitive, and wrong… to everyone. Again, he just has to mature and understand the importance of respect. Not trying to get attention by posting stupid things, he should be beyond that.”
When Paris Jackson addressed 50 on Instagram, she made sure to make it clear that she was not throwing shade at Chris Brown. TJ Jackson also avoided bashing CB in order to call out 50 Cent.
“Me and my family have nothing but love for Chris. He’s always been incredibly respectful to all of us. He’s always paid great tribute and homage to my Uncle Michael. We all wish him nothing but the best. I hope he keeps breaking records, that’s my answer. I respect what he does as an artist and he will continue to grow,” TJ told AllHipHop.
The Michael Jackson Estate has repeatedly denied all sexual abuse accusations leveled against the 13-time Grammy winner.
Plus, TJ Jackson and his brother Tariano “Taj” Jackson specifically slammed HBO’s Leaving Neverland documentary which featured Wade Robson and James Safechuck claiming they were molested by Michael Jackson as children.
It will always be a flaw of humanity to cheat and exploit a beloved popular figure for personal gain. Do know the main actors involved swore under oath of my uncle’s innocence. What’s changed? The need for $. I feel terrible for my uncle & my cousins. They are the true victims. https://t.co/PN4ggq0fJ6
