50 Cent's Japanese Earthquake Tweets Spark Outrage

50 CENT

Once again, 50 Cent's tweets are a natural disaster.

As Japan works around the clock to dig out and salvage lives and cities from the wreckage of the devastating 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami, the rapper took to Twitter to laugh about the situation.

"Wave will hit 8am them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing," he first tweeted on Friday morning. Later in the afternoon, he said, "Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoe's from LA,Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol."

A few minutes later, he must have come to his senses (or received enough criticism, as he wrote, "Nah this is nuts but what can anyone do about it. Let's pray for anyone who has lost someone."

That contrition didn't last long. "Man they made a movie about all this 2012 now you think that was a lucky guess," 50 tweeted a few hours later. And to defend himself, he said, "Some of my tweets are ignorant I do it for shock value. Hate it or love it. I'm cool either way 50cent."

Meanwhile, 2000 bodies have been found on the Miyagi Coast in Japan, and up to 10,000 are feared dead. And, many more are at risk as the nuclear power that runs so much of the country continues to see plant explosions.
