We’re all used to seeing 50 Cent crack jokes on Instagram no matter the occasion, but now, he’s actually apologizing for a meme he got very wrong.

In an interview with Los Angeles radio legend Big Boy on Wednesday, the rapper apologized to Megan Thee Stallion for posting a meme hinting that she was lying in connection to Lanez’s trial late last year.

“I’m gonna apologize to Megan Thee Stallion,” 50 said Jan. 11. “I said some things, and it was because… On social media I posted things that — when she was with Gayle [King] — she said, ‘Were you intimate with Tory Lanez?’ And she said, ‘What?’ and it was like, ‘No.’ And I was like, ‘Ah, she lying.’ At that point I knew she was lying, it wouldn’t be no reason for them to be around each other. From that, it felt like she was lying, to me.”

The Power executive producer went on to add that he “should apologize to her, because when I heard the [jail] phone conversation [between Lanez and Meg’s former best friend Kelsey Harris] … That made me feel like, ‘Oh sh–, now I know what happened.’ I’m sure that was probably what swayed people in court too.”


50 Cent’s overdue apology comes after he shared a meme to Instagram in December comparing Megan to Jussie Smollett, the former Empire actor convicted of lying about being physically attacked in a 2019 hate crime that included both racist and homophobic slurs.

“Damn I’m confused all this sh– going around I don’t know what to think LOL,” he wrote at the time.

For Tory Lanez’s trial, a verdict was reached Dec. 23, in which Lanez was found guilty of assault with a semiautomatic firearm; carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm in a vehicle; and discharging a firearm with gross negligence. He faces up to 22 years in prison.
