On his Twitter page, rapper 50 Cent had posted an item suggesting that any man who doesn't like women should commit suicide, according to Advocate.com . He tweeted, "If you a man and your [ sic ] over 25 and you don't eat pu**y just kill your self damn it. The world will be a better place. Lol."
Truth Wins Out, a non-profit organization that fights anti-LGBT religious extremism, had issued a release, asking 50 Cent to clarify his remarks. According to a subsequent item issued by Truth Wins Out, the rapper later tweeted, "The other night I made a joke about a blow job. My male followers enjoyed it. So I then went on to joke about women receiving the same....Some how they turned a simple joke about oral sex into a anti gay statement. I have nothing against people who choose [ an ] alternative life [ style ] . [ I ] n fact, [ I've ] publicly stated my mom loved women. It [ 's ] funny how people think negative statements are news worthy but positive statements are not worthy of coverage."
Truth Wins Out added in its second release, "It is great that he responded and that his Tweet was not anti-gay. Given the heartbreaking week of LGBT youth suicidesnow up to 5the last thing that was needed was a star encouraging LGBT people taking their own lives. So, his latest Tweet is a relief."
