Rapper 50 Cent made headlines following his surprise Super Bowl LVI halftime appearance, though for all the wrong reasons. After a meme went viral on social media poking fun at his weight, the hip-hop artist shared the image in a recent Instagram post.
The Super Bowl LVI halftime show was headlined by Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar. The rapper surprised everyone with his appearance and the top-selling artist spat his most popular hit, “In Da Club”.
With such a star-studded lineup of talent, the Super Bowl halftime was one to remember. The opening of the show saw Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg kick things off. The pair of rappers then pointed down, and 50 Cent started to perform while hanging upside down.
50 Cent’s physique seems to be taking over the social media landscape. The rapper has shown off his shredded build before and that is why some were taken back by his look at the Super Bowl LVI.
50 Cent Made into a Meme Following Super Bowl Halftime Show
The popular rapper was seen during the halftime show with his signature white tank top and white headband. However, he is pushing 48-years-old, and some thought he was looking softer than usual. Nevertheless, Curtis Jackson’s build still looks incredible given his age. The famous celebrity shared the meme on his Instagram page.
“👀who the fvck did this? 😠” 50 Cent shared.
Fans flocked to social media following his performance and echoed that he was ‘looking like a whole dollar’. This marked 50 Cent’s first halftime show. Since fans were comparing his physique to his former 28-year-old self, many trolls were quick to go after the popular artist. Here are what some people on social media had to say about the famous performer’s physique.
“50 Cent looks like he was hit by inflation,” one Twitter user joked.
“50 Cent looking like a whole dollar bill,” another person said.
“Looks like 50 Cent has been spending a lot of time at the candy shop,” someone else wrote, referencing another of the 46-year-old’s hit songs.
Curtis Jackson was in the spotlight two months ago after he shamed fellow platinum producing artist Madonna. After body-shaming the superstar on social media in a since-deleted post, people swiftly pointed out the irony of the rapper looking heavier at the halftime show.
The Super Bowl halftime was a blast from the past with several rappers taking part in one of the most commercialized events of the year. While 50 Cent’s physique may not stand up to his former 28-year-old self, at least the hip-hop star is taking the jokes in good stride.
