50 Cent Claps Back at Conor McGregor for Taking a Shot at Him and Floyd Mayweather

The Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor promotional tour made a stop at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Thursday night, and unlike the first two promo tour stops earlier this week, McGregor was a lot more subdued during this one.

Just kidding.

McGregor did what McGregor has done every step of the way during the promo tour and took a bunch of shots at Mayweather, with most of those shots directed at Mayweather’s recent money troubles. At one point during the event, McGregor handed Mayweather a copy of Jay Z’s new 4:44 album and told him to listen to it and learn how to build “a real empire”:

But McGregor didn’t just take shots at Mayweather this time around. He also let off a couple rounds at 50 Cent, Mayweather’s on-again, off-again BFF, for whatever reason. While once again addressing Mayweather’s current financial situation, McGregor had some harsh words for 50:

“50 Cent is a bitch,” he yelled. “You and 50 are two fake money bitches. He’s bankrupt, and you’re about to be.”

50 was tied up on Thursday making an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and promoting his show, Power. But of course, word got back to him about what McGregor said, and he didn’t let it go unnoticed. 50 Cent took to Instagram and responded by posting this:


👀what the fuck wrong wit this white boy, you fighting Floyd not me fool. LOL

“What the fuck wrong wit this white boy,” 50 wrote, “you fighting Floyd not me fool. LOL”

And a few hours later, he took it a step further by responding again while simultaneously pushing Power. He posted a photo of McGregor tapping out against Nate Diaz along with a caption that said, “Power about to get emotional so try not to get choked up”:


Little leprechaun Vs. KANAN July 16 Sunday 9Pm POWER Episode 4. Ain't no tapping out over here LOL

“Ain't no tapping out over here LOL,” he wrote.

50 also spoke briefly about his relationship with Mayweather on Kimmel and said that he plans to be ringside for his fight with McGregor next month:

50 actually gave McGregor some props during his interview with Jimmy Kimmel and said that he thinks McGregor has a small chance to beat Mayweather. But we doubt he would say that again after hearing what McGregor said about him on Thursday. And if 50 does show up for the fight, we’d look for him to do whatever it takes to try and get inside of McGregor’s head in the moments leading up to the match.

Kevin Durant Claps Back at Twitter Trolls Who Are Talking Trash

The NBA Finals are over, which means Kevin Durant is back on Twitter.

KD has a lot of time on his hands, basking in the glory of his first NBA title. Apparently, he has so much time that he took it upon himself to address a few Twitter users who have been all up in his mentions with their hot takes and other random insults. Here’s him going in a few days ago:

Today, Durant is still being a savage. It all started when he complemented Phoenix Mercury’s Diana Taurasi, who became the WNBA’s all-time scoring leader following the team’s win against the Los Angeles Sparks (90-59) in L.A. From there, KD was having some fun, getting into an argument with one superfan from OKC. A “fart in your face” insult was actually hurled.

At this point, you're probably wondering why KD is even engaging in social media at all. Everyone needs to blow off steam somehow, right?

But this might be the real reason. Says “the legend”:

LOL. Nice curve.

Keep doing you, KD.

Frank Ocean Has Been Accused of Stealing the Art for His blondedRadio Show

Frank Ocean is facing another accusation of plagiarism.

About a week ago, German musician Jesse Osborne-Lanthier went to Twitter claiming someone had tipped him off about an alleged theft. He included side-by-side images of the art for Ocean’s Beats 1 blondedRADIO show and the cover art for Conversation Sur Lettres Mortes, a project by him and fellow electronic artist Grischa Lichtenberger.

LOL been brought to my att that Frank Ocean ripd-off Grischa Lichtenberger n I’s poster that came with ‘CSLM’ on cosmo rhythmatic last year,” Osborne-Lanthier wrote in the post. The similarities between the images are obvious, as both feature white backgrounds with black text placed in a nearly identical pattern.

Ocean’s team has yet to respond to the allegations.

This isn’t the first time the 29-year-old singer has been accused of stealing creative work. In 2016, fans noticed Ocean’s Godpseed screenplay included C. JoyBell C’s writing originally published in Vade Mecum, a book of collected quotes. The writer called out Ocean for ripping off her work and refusing to make it right.

“I was definitely plagiarized, because it was just a simple copy-and-paste; word-for-word. It was not even modified. It was just a copy-and-paste. Like from Goodreads perhaps,” she wrote in a response. “I usually give people the benefit of the doubt, and up until I learned that they have refused to comment, I thought they would just say they found it somewhere and couldn't find the author […] When others inspire you, try to inspire them, too. When you take, you also need to give back to where you have taken from. And that can really help make our world a better place.”

50 Cent Trolls Rival Ja Rule Over Fyre Festival Failure

The Fyre Festival, a “luxury” music festival in the Bahamas that was supposed to happen this week but fell apart because, well, it was a disaster, had a big name attached to it: co-organizer Ja Rule. Ja said the festival chaos was not his fault, but that hasn't stopped people from roasting him—and perhaps rightfully so.

Naturally, a good Ja Rule roast cannot exempt 50 Cent, Ja's longtime rap rival. 50 posted a meme on his Instagram insulting both Ja Rule and President Donald Trump.


😆Can't do nothing right. 😂 LOL

A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent) on Apr 30, 2017 at 10:41am PDT

This was far from the first meme inspired by the festival, which received its fair share of criticism on social media. And Ja Rule is far from the only celebrity being criticized for supporting Fyre Festival.

The festival was “fully postponed” due to lack of organization, no security, lack of funds, poor facilities, bad infrastructure, and much more. Despite the blowback, Ja Rule and the organizers released another statement on Sunday to reassure everyone that all guests were safe. They also revealed a form has been sent out to everyone who wanted a refund.

In other 50-related news, the hip-hop mogul is set to host a late night variety show on BET called 50 Central. You can watch the trailer here.
