50 Cent continued his trolling in November by laughing at a photo of Madonna facedown under a bed wearing stockings and heels. On Thursday (December 2), she responded to 50 Cent’s comments on her Instagram Stories, calling him out for making jokes while sharing a photo of them together on MTV’s Total Request Live in 2003.
“Here is 50 Cent pretending to be my friend,” Madonna said. “Now you have decided to talk smack about me! I guess your new career is getting attention by trying to humiliate others on social media. The least elevated choice you could make as an artist and an adult. You’re just jealous you won’t look as good as me or have as much fun when you are my age!”
Shortly after, 50 Cent apologized on Twitter, writing, “I must have hurt Madonna feelings. she went and dug up a old MTV photo from 03. ok Im sorry i did not intend to hurt your feelings. I don’t benefit from this in anyway i said what i thought when i saw the picture because of where i had seen it before i hope you accept my apology.”

Various memes were posted by 50 Cent relating to the photo, including Madonna photoshopped underneath Dorothy’s house from The Wizard of Oz.
“Yo this is the funniest shit! LOL,” he wrote in his initial post. “That’s Madonna under the bed trying to do like a virgin at 63. she shot out, if she don’t get her old ass up. LMFAO.”
Madonna shared the original image as part of a photoshoot on her Instagram page, but the platform ended up taking it down due to part of her nipple showing. This prompted the pop superstar to hit back at Instagram for the decision.
“I’m reposting photographs Instagram took down without warning or notification,” she wrote. “The reason they gave my management that does not handle my account was that a small portion of my nipple was exposed. It is still astounding to me that we live in a culture that allows every inch of a woman’s body to be shown except a nipple. As if that is the only part of a woman’s anatomy that could be sexualized.”
She continued, “The nipple that nourishes the baby! Can’t a mans nipple be experienced as erotic ??!! And what about a woman’s ass which is never censored anywhere. Giving thanks that I have managed to maintain my sanity through four decades of censorship…… sexism……ageism and misogyny.”
