Chelsea Handler claims her ex 50 Cent was just kidding when he posted his apparent support for Trump in the upcoming election.
According to ABC News, the comedian who appeared on “The View” earlier today, detailed a phone conversation she had with the rapper after a social media post he made showing support for Trump made headlines.
50 posted a picture of a CNBC graphic showing the impact of Biden’s proposed tax cuts on October 19th, with the rapper humorously claiming he didn’t want to become “20 Cent”.
The infamous post was marked by Instagram for “missing context.” Biden has already clarified that his his plan wouldn’t raise federal income taxes for Americans earning less than $400,000 a year. Once 50’s posts went viral, Handler stepped in, even offering to pay his taxes.
Handler who is promoting her new HBO Max comedy special “Evolution” has claimed in several interviews that she has spoken with 50 and that he’s admitted to her that he was just kidding.
“I had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump, and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook,” she told the show’s host, Jimmy Fallon on October 23rd.
Today on “The View”, she reiterated by explaining that she spoke on the phone with 50 Cent on Monday and that he further clarified who he’s supporting for president during their call.
“He wasn’t serious. He was just screwing around on his Twitter. He is supporting Joe Biden. He made that very clear to me,” Handler said.
