50 Cent has been praised for his music and recent contributions to Hollywood, but his latest comments about who he’s supporting in the upcoming election has garnered mixed reviews from social media.

Earlier today (Oct. 19), the ‘Power’ actor took to Instagram to announce that he will be voting for Donald Trump on Election Day. His comment was a reaction to Joe Biden’s proposed tax rates for the states of California, New Jersey and New York.

“WHAT THE FUCK! (VOTE For TRUMP) I’M OUT. FUCK NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like Black people 62% are you out of ya fucking mind,” he captioned the post.

Some Twitter users seemed to understand 50’s reason for wanting to side with Trump.

“I’m with 50 Cent. IDGAF what your social politics are, your personal life, who you’re associated with. If you can’t keep your hands out of my pocket, I’m gonna kick you to the curb,” one user tweeted.

Another user applauded him for his courage in supporting the president’s reelection.

“Show him some love,” the user wrote. “It’s not easy to stand up for what you believe in when you know the left will attack you for it.”

Those dissatisfied with 50’s Trump endorsement also spoke out on Twitter.

“50 Cent can go fuck himself for choosing his personal wealth over the health of the nation. What a selfish piece of shit,” a Twitter user wrote.

Another tweet read, “50 Cent literally just declared himself a MAGA lunatic because he doesn’t want to pay more in taxes than impoverished Americans. How nice of him to show he’s part of the same redhat wearing money grifting group as Ice Cube and Kanye West. Makes me physically ill.”

A third user claimed they’re waiting for 50 Cent to be labeled a “coon,” “sellout” and “Uncle Tom.”

Look below for some of Twitter’s reactions to 50 Cent’s announcement.
