(The Post Millennial) – Chelsea Handler, a comedian and ex-girlfriend of Curtis Jackson, better known as 50 Cent, felt she had to call her ex out publicly over his recent tweets supporting US President Donald Trump.
Handler said on Jimmy Fallon’s show on Friday that “he’s a black person, so he can’t vote for Trump,” then goes on to offer him to “go for another spin” (i.e. have sex with him again) if he agrees to publicly denounce President Trump, and presumably support hopeful Joe Biden.
Chelsea Handler says that 50 Cent can't vote for Donald Trump because he's a black person and she had to remind him of that fact, because his support for Trump would influence a generation of black people to also vote for Trump. pic.twitter.com/lTd2u5ioCR

Handler, who briefly had dated the artist and entrepreneur in 2010, had previously tweeted against 50 Cent back on Wednesday, tagging him personally:
Hey fucker! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, fucker! Remember? https://t.co/uQsu7DHrRQ

“Hey f**ker! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, f**ker! Remember?”
Jackson’s original tweet that was the cause of all this polemic is reproduced here below:

“So he doesn’t want to pay 62 percent in taxes because he doesn’t want to go from ’50 Cent’ to ’20 Cent’ and I had to remind him that he was a black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook,” continued Handler during the interview with Fallon.
Handler in turn has received harsh criticism for these recent tweets and comments, with critics accusing her in no uncertain terms of being patronizing and racist:
This is proof that white liberals are the most racist, rude, and nasty people towards the black community https://t.co/f5K0O7kKrZ
