The rapper promoted his own projects, misspelled Williams’ name, and then doubled down after facing backlash.
The musician promoted his latest TV show and his alcohol brands in an Instagram post about Williams, who was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment on Monday. An investigation into the cause of death is ongoing.
“R.I.P micheal k williams,” he added, misspelling the actor’s name and including the names of his own alcohol brands as hashtags.
In other posts, the rapper referred to his years-long feud with the actor and an unconfirmed report about drug paraphernalia being found at the scene of his death.
The three posts have since been deleted.
But one post, in which 50 Cent references the backlash to his comments and then doubles down on them, remains on the platform.
