50 Cent Japan Tragedy Joke

As the world watches in horror at the tragic eents taking palce in Japan, some are also up in arms about the disrespectful tweets seen this weekend from the rapper 50 Cent.

The platinum selling rapper and actor made several irreverent comments on twitter about the earthquake and tsunami, that have caused Japan to need tremendous aid from around the world to cope with this natural disaster, as well as causing intense concern about the nuclear power plant that threatens to go into meltdown.

But 50 Cent has treated the incident as a joke, saying "Wave will hit 8am, them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing." and "I had to evacuate my h-es from L.A., Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol." on his twitter page.

He has since apologized and will join Katy Perry and many other stars in donating money to relief efforts.

50 Cent has offered an apology for some insensitive remarks he made about the tragedy in Japan. 50 Cent was even called out by some of his twitter followers for not taking it seriously. The rapper, actor, and businessman claims that he only posted the comments on twitter for shock value and whether we "hate it or love it," 50 Cent claims "I'm cool anyways." Although 50 Cent offered an apology for his remarks, most still found his tweets very distasteful and expressed a hope that he would donate some of that hip hop money to help those that were affected. As reported on, the death toll in following the Japan earthquake and tsunami has reached 14,000 and is steadily rising.
