A lot of rappers have spoken out about Oprah’s seemingly hostile attitude towards hip hop artists. First Ludacris complained about having his comments edited out when he appeared on her show to discuss the movie Crash. Then 50 Cent told the Associated Press that he “could care less” about Oprah. And to top it all of, Ice Cube bitched to FHM magazine that Oprah had Eve and Cedric the Entertainer on to talk about the movie Barbershop, but not him.
And now 50 Cent has lashed out again. Not only does he accuse Oprah of being a white woman, but he also manages to get a homophobic dig in at Kanye West. From BET.com:
In usual 50 Cent fashion, the rapper has once again decided to pick a fight. This week, 50 Cent has decided to go after Oprah again. In an exclusive interview while backstage at 106 & Park last Thursday, 50 said, “Oprah’s great. I just think the only misconception is that she’s a Black woman. They say Oprah Winfrey’s a Black woman, but she’s [been] catering to a demographic of a middle-aged White woman for so long that I believe she’s a middle-aged White woman.”
These comments stem from a beef that 50 Cent had with Oprah earlier this year after rumors began to circulate that the talk show host refused to have certain rappers on her show. ”
Oprah will have a rapist on her show and have a discussion about why they do it, but won’t have a rags to riches story on her show,” 50 said.
He went on to even throw rapper/producer Kanye West in the fire. “She’ll have Kanye West on her show. I think middle America would rather have they kids be gay, than have them aggressive.”
