As the coronavirus pandemic forces people into self-quarantine and scientists around the globe work tirelessly to find a cure (or at least a vaccine) for COVID-19, Donald Trump and former host of The Apprentice is facing criticism for not getting ahead of the situation.
On Saturday (March 28), 50 Cent made it perfectly clear how he feels about the way Trump is handling the pandemic, sharing an Instagram post that read, “You wanted a reality show host as president. Well now you’re on Survivor.”
He wrote in the caption, “yeah we fucked up big time, but we gonna be alright watch. LOL.”
It was only two weeks ago that 50 was hitting a strip club in New York City as the coronavirus was making its way across the globe. In video of his wild night out, 50 threw dollar bills at the dancers and wasn’t adhering to the social distancing rules set in place.
But the situation has grown exponentially more serious since then. The United States now has more reported cases of COVID-19 than any other country in the world. New York alone has over 52,000 cases.
New York officials forecast the apex of the pandemic in the state is still 14 to 21 days away. At that point, the state expects it will need 140,000 hospital beds. According to the latest report from the CDC, there are 103,321 reported cases in the U.S. and 1,668 deaths.
