“Starz is a shit show, they better sell it fast,” he wrote alongside a caption of a roaring lion. “They put the fucking ‘BMF’ show on, then took it down. What network does that? They just ruined the anticipation of the episode I directed. I WORKED HARD ON THIS. I can’t work with these people anymore.”
“Episode 7 of ‘BMF’ is the best work, I have done directing to date,” he continued. “I’m disappointed that Starz handled this so poorly. I used my personal relationships to make things happen they couldn’t have made happen.”
As 50 explained, Starz contacted him and expressed their desires to hold episode seven of “Black Mafia Family” so the show would end just in time for the Nov. 21 premiere of “Power Book II: Ghost.” “I said cool, “I like that idea.’ Then these shit head people put the fucking episode out for 3 hours then take it down,” he wrote. “This is not ok, when I get uncomfortable, I make everybody uncomfortable. Now, who [is] getting fired? Until you figure that out, don’t call my phone respectfully.”
He also shared that he is looking into “buying the Starz network.”
In the wake of 50’s venting session, a representative for Starz chalked the mistake up to a technical glitch.
“The fan demand for ‘BMF,’ and specifically this highly anticipated episode directed by executive producer Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson, is undeniable,” the spokesperson said. “There was a technical glitch that allowed fans that have the Starz app who logged in right at midnight to temporarily access the episode early. The episode will be released globally as planned on Sunday, Nov. 14, across all Starz platforms.”
