After loudly and proudly endorsing Donald Trump for his “tax breaks,”50 Cent casually drew back on his support once ex-girlfriend Chelsea Handler reached out. Now, he’s got jokes.
In a Twitter post shared on Monday (November 2), 50 posted a meme showing a white man holding a Black Lives Matter sign in a stand-off with a Black man holding a confederate flag. Because Eminem endorsed Joe Biden and Lil Wayne now infamously endorsed Trump, the Queens-bred rap legend captioned it with a laughing emoji and called it “Wayne vs. Eminem.”

Wayne handed out his endorsement on Thursday (October 29) after meeting with Trump at the White House. Sharing a photo with him on Twitter, Wayne praised the Commander-in-Chief for his work with criminal justice reform and The Platinum Plan he’s been toting for the Black community.
“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus,” Wayne said. “besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
In response to Wayne’s post, 50 got on Twitter to denounce the photo.
“oh no WAYNE, he wrote. “I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE.”
Meanwhile, Em is ridin’ with Biden and even loaned his 2002 mega-hit “Lose Yourself” to the campaign in his endorsement. In a tweet posted Monday, Slim Shady encouraged fans to vote with a black-and-white clip showing people lined up to vote while wearing their masks as the track plays.
