50 Cent is one of the most famous rappers in the game. Now, the music star is making headlines after saying he is considering legal action against a member of the NYPD.
Fox News broke this incredible story on Monday. According to reports, an NYPD Commander allegedly told his officers to shoot 50 Cent on the spot when they see him.
"50 Cent, the rapper best known for the hit song 'In da Club,' is reportedly considering legal action after it was reported that an NYPD commander allegedly told officers to 'shoot' the rapper on the spot," wrote Fox News.
"The comments were allegedly made by Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez during a roll call over the summer. The rapper was scheduled to watch police officers who have 'beef with each other duke it out' at an event in the Bronx," The New York Post reported.
Now, 50 Cent is speaking out about the news. He took to social media to share his feelings on the report and to let everyone know he is taking the accusations very seriously.
"This is how I wake up this morning, 🤷🏽♂️ This guy Emanuel Gonzales is a dirty cop abusing his POWER. The sad part is this man still has a badge and a gun. I take this threat very seriously and I'm consulting with my legal counsel regarding my options moving forward," wrote 50 on Twitter.
"The president of the Captains Endowment Association told TMZ that Gonzalez never instructed his officers to shoot the rapper," wrote Fox.
It will be interesting to see this investigation unfold. If this is true, it is a terrible thing for a member of the NYPD to be saying. He would most certainly lose his job if it's proven to be factual.
