Rapper and “Power” producer 50 Cent has been salty about the success of “Empire” ever since fans have compared it to the Starz hit, but he’s taking his dislike of the show to the next level by slamming the BET Awards for awarding Terrence Howard for Best Actor when Omari Hardwick didn’t get nominated.
“It’s a damn shame what happened to the BET Awards,” 50 Cent says in a video posted by Say Cheese TV. “FOX bought the whole goddamn show. How you gonna have a best actor award given to Terrence Howard and not even mention Omari Hardwick?”
Hardwick is the lead in 50’s program Power, which the rapper has championed over Empire.
As he continues to voice his opinion of the BET Awards, he also takes a shot at one of the event’s performers.
“Motherf*** BET,” he says. “The highlight of the whole g**d*** show was Puffy busting his a*s. F*** ’em. F*** ’em all.”
