Taking to Instagram, the television executive shared a screenshot of a Twitter that read, “Somebody leaked episode 9 of Force and I’m telling u this is the best episode this season. If you have STARZ you can watch episode 9 of Power Force.” Another tweet summed up the plot in less than 140 words.
50 Cent expressed his frustrations with STARZ in the caption, writing, “see they leaked the episode again these people are incompetent. I went to Harvard, so the fuck what ! SMH.”
50 Cent has been vocal about his issues with the STARZ Network in recent weeks. At the beginning of March, the 46-year-old rapper-turned-exec blasted threatened to pull all of his shows from the channel.
Sharing an Instagram video of a man packing his suitcase, Fiddy wrote, “This is me packing my stuff, STARZ. Sucks, my deal is up over here I’m out. They renewed High Town, and FORCE is the highest rated show they have sitting in limbo. If I told you how much dumb shit I deal with over here, you would think they all went to school on a small yellow bus.”
In four additional Instagram posts, he suggested an exodus was on the horizon, writing, “Hold my calls i’m traveling. Getting the fvck away from STARZ. @bransoncognac @lecheminduroi. Anil get your fvcking bag’s in the car now, we are out of here, take that fvcking sign off the door no more G-unit film and television over here.”
He added, “Josh hurry the fvck up, get all the scripts we out! Micheal what the fuck are you takings so long for, let’s go! Why are you holding all of your clothing so perfect, we can just get new clothes when we get where we going.”
A couple of weeks later, Fiddy explained in another angry post he only ha a few more episodes of Power Book IV: Force left and then six months of nothing.
“FORCE is the highest rated premier of any show on the network. when they take too long to green light it, it pushes the production time line back,” he wrote. “after tonight’s episode there are 3 left, April 10 it’s a wrap. Then 6 months till i have anything new.”
