50 Cent, Erin Andrews Kiss: The Real Reason The Reporter Rejected The Rapper (CARTOON)

50 cent erin andrews kiss

50 Cent is usually pretty lucky with the ladies. He's been seen on the red carpet with a range of women from Vivica Fox to Ciara, and is even known for being wrapped up in a bit of a love triangle with comedian Chelsea Handler.

But last week, the rapper fell short with Fox News reporter Erin Andrews. After he attempted to kiss Andrews, who was covering the Daytona 500, she turned her head so that the smooch would land on her cheek instead of her lips.

Although Andrews attributed the mix up to the chaotic atmosphere at the race, cartoonist Kevin Eason has another explanation for the awkward moment. According to Eason, a show of affection between the reporter and the rapper may have ruffled a couple of feathers at Fox News and elsewhere.

What do you think? Would a smooch between 50 and Andrews be cause for a firestorm? How would Fox News react? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
