Last week 50 Cent stirred up controversy by endorsing Donald Trump, citing a study which falsely claimed that Joe Biden would raise his taxes to 62%. 50 Cent has been facing criticism ever since, particularly from Chelsea Handler, who offered to pay his taxes if he would get behind Biden.
Now 50 Cent has retracted his endorsement of Donald Trump, apparently citing fictional Scarface character Angel Fernandez in the process:
👀a what, 😳another spin 💫Fu*k Donald Trump, I never liked him. 🤨for all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL @chelseahandler @jimmyfallon pic.twitter.com/Tya6EqDBFt

So there you have it, for whatever it’s worth. Donald Trump has had an incredibly difficult time landing high profile endorsements, and now he’s just lost one of the few he did manage to land. But this election won’t come down to which musician endorses which candidate. It’ll come down to voter turnout, so let’s spend these final nine days doing everything we can to drive turnout.
