50 Cent shares his thoughts on the Donald Sterling controversy, indicating that he feels the former Clippers owner was betrayed by his girlfriend.
Many rappers have weighed in on the Donald Sterling controversy, the majority of which have been furious with the former Clippers owner over his racist comments. 50 Cent however, seems to be more concerned with how Sterling himself was treated in the situation.
âI couldnât get past the concept of looking at an older man talking to a woman heâs in love with and making probably the biggest compromise ever, saying maybe, âIf you like them, be with them. Sleep with them. Just donât embarrass me,ââ 50 said in an interview with XXL.Â
The rapper did acknowledge that the remarks he made were wrong, but continued to sympathize with Sterling's position. "So some of the things he said following that were inappropriate, but heâs saying to you that thereâs other people around that Iâm being embarrassed by that think and feel the way I feel," he continued. "Now youâve got one person that youâre pointing to, penalizing for that. Heâs actually saying at that point, âJust donât embarrass me,' meaning thereâs other people that feel exactly like me here to be embarrassed by. I just watched it and I just saw a man being betrayed.âÂ
