50 Cent’s Empire Beef, A Complete Guide

On Sunday, Vivica A. Fox visited Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live and social media went crazy after her remarks about the 50 Cent Vibe cover.  The two began discussing Vivica Fox’s Empire role leading to questions about 50 Cent blaming the Empire TV show’s rating drop on the “gay stuff” on the show.

Cohen asked Vivica, “What were your thoughts when 50 Cent blamed the season ratings dip on ‘gay stuff’?”

Is 50 Cent Gay
Vivica responded, “First of all, you know the pot called the kettle black is all I’m saying.” Vivica had the world wondering: Is 50 Cent gay? Cohen then asked the 51-year-old actress if she meant 50 Cent was gay and she answered “he’s not.”

Vivica Fox then added, “I’ll just never forget there was a Vibe cover with him and Souja Boy that made me go, ‘hmmm’ he looked like a booty snatcher on that one to me.”

When Fox commented on the 50 Cent Vibe cover she was actually referring to the 50 Cent and Soulja Boy XXL cover, which featured 50 wearing a white mask with his arm on Soulja Boy’s shoulder.  50 Cent and Soulja Boy are rather close on the magazine’s cover.
