The Wrap previously reported, that the TV show “Empire” attracted a massive 16 million viewers during its premiere last week. But the ratings dipped on Wednesday night to 13.7 million viewers. While those are still huge numbers, 50 Cent(@50cent) who has a long beef with “Empire” jumped at the chance to gloat.
He said he knows why “Empire’s” ratings dipped in its second episode of the season- too much “gay stuff.”
In an Instagram post that has since been deleted, Fifty shared a page called @industryonblast_ that said the Fox show’s ratings fell because of too many celebrity cameos and “gay” plots.
“There are 3 million less viewers who tuned into last night’s Empire episode!!!! did you watch it?” the post said. “We could not take the extra gay stuff or celebrity stuff last night!!!!”
50 Cent chimed in with his own commentary by urging Cookie Lyon, “Empire” character to call him for help.
“EMPIRES TV RATINGS TOOK A HUGE HIT. Ok I’ll stop now. COOKIE CALL ME BABY. I’ll tell every body to watch the show for you. LOL,” he wrote.
The rapper, who in the past has accused the Fox series of copying the promotional campaign of his Starz drama “Power,” mocked the Fox series last week on Instagram after it took a dig at him in its Season 2 premiere.
During Wednesday’s episode, Cookie Lyon dropped a wisecrack calling 50 Cent “thirsty.”
