50 Cent is criticizing Oprah’s efforts to bring men in the entertainment industry who stand accused of sexual assault to justice.
On Friday (Dec. 13), the Power creator hit up his Instagram timeline to vent about his thoughts on Oprah’s upcoming #MeToo documentary. The untitled program will focus on the harrowing journey of a former music industry executive who struggles to tell her sexual assault experience in public. 50 believes the documentary won’t do anything but make defendants “guilty until proven innocent.”
“♂️I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men,” 50 wrote in his caption. “No Harvey Weinstein, No Epstein, just Micheal jackson and Russell Simmons this shit is sad. Gale hit R Kelly with the death blow documentary. Every time I hear Micheal jackson I don’t know whether to dance or think about the little boys butts.These documentary’s are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent. #lecheminduroi #bransoncognac #starzgettheapp #abcforlife”
The accuser in question, Drew Dixon, is one of the women who’s accused Russell Simmons of sexual misconduct. The documentary, which is slated to air on Apple TV+ in 2020, will also feature Michael Jackson’s accusers, Wade Robson and James Safechuck.
50 Cent, who toured overseas earlier this year, and Oprah’s luke-warm relationship goes back to 2006 when 50 bashed Oprah’s lack of understanding for rappers during the prime of his career. He even went as far as naming his dog after her. Then, in 2012, the pair hammered out their differences in an interview with the revered talk show host.
