50 Cent is usually hilarious on social media. However, the Power star went too far by mocking Wendy Williams fainting on live TV yesterday (31 October).
Williams, 53, was hosting a Halloween edition of The Wendy Williams Show when she suddenly slurred her words, stumbled backwards and collapsed on the floor in front of her live studio audience and viewers at home. The outspoken talk show host returned to finish the show after a long commercial and explained that she “overheated” in her Statue Of Liberty costume.
Fans of Williams were concerned for her wellbeing but others said it looked like a “stunt”, which 50 Cent agreed with. The Candy Shop rapper posted footage of the incident along with the caption: “LOL… What is this🤦♂️it just looks like bad acting to me. LOL she said she over heated in her costume.”
Promoting his own show, 50 Central, the rapper added: “Happy Halloween Catch 50Central tomorrow night at 10:30 PM, I’m gonna over heat in my costume. LOL.”
It did not take long for memes of Williams fainting to begin circulating on social media. 50 Cent shared one which joked: “When you talk s**t online and run into the person in real life.”
There is no love lost between Williams and 50 Cent. In September, the talk show criticised the rapper over his child support battle with son Marquise. Williams’ comments ignited a feud and 50 Cent, 42, has mocked her online ever since.
However, their petty row does not excuse the fact 50 Cent was wrong for laughing at Williams’ poor health. One of his Instagram followers hit out at the musician: “Dats not funny… u can pass out like dat i did f*****g dummies.”

Another weighed in: “This may look fake but some people that have real seizures and stroke’s look like this.”
One other Instagram follower said: “And all of you ass kissers that find this funny, karma coming your way too. Im no fan of hers but NOTHING she’s ever done deserve to laugh at this.! It could have been worse where she died. None of us are perfect, so be very careful with all of your giggling and stuff.”
