50 Cent’s antics on Instagram may have prompted him to take another break.
After initially suggesting that he had been shadow banned from the platform, 50 shared a photo, explaining content he posted was removed “for bullying or harassment.”
The post that was removed, according to 50 is a young woman in a thong bikini bending over while sitting on the ground. A few Instagram users in the comments decided to put on their sleuth hats to determine what exactly made the content violate Instagram’s Terms of Agreement. Even 50 himself was confused.
“I don’t understand this, why am i getting this?” 50 wrote. “it says the post is removed for bullying but the post is still on my page. ok time to take a break from IG.”
The break wouldn’t be the first for the Queens mogul. Last year, he temporarily deactivated his Instagram account after suggesting that he “liked Twitter better,” and made a similar move in 2018, suggesting that he would be on Twitter more and post whatever he so desired on the platform to his 12.1 million followers. The break, however, was short-lived as he returned to IG to lust after Lizzo and continue his trolling ways.
50’s stunts on Instagram have long been a spot for controversy due to his unfiltered opinions about anything. However, he’s also managed to be contrite in recent weeks, including apologizing to Megan Thee Stallion for posting insensitive memes about her shooting incident.
“Damn I didn’t think this shit was real,” 50 wrote in a since-deleted post. “It sounded so crazy @theestallion i’m glad your feeling better and i hope you can accept my apology. I posted a meme that was floating around. I wouldn’t have done that if i knew you was really hurt sorry.”
In the hours since announcing he would be taking a break from IG, 50’s kept it mostly promotional. He’s shared images from his hit ABC drama, For Life, his son Sire Jackson and his liquor line, Branson Cognac.
