50 Cent was in Washington on Wednesday, and, according to reports, the rapper and businessman went to Capitol Hill to speak about diversity in entertainment. He also talked about keeping Starz, which houses his show “Power,” on Comcast Xfinity.
50 has been calling out Comcast ever since it dropped Starz, because the two entities couldn’t reach a deal to stay in business together.
At one point during his visit, the “In Da Club” rapper met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and the two posed for a photo together, which he posted to Instagram on Wednesday.
“My #1 Lady Nancy Pelosi – Big Changes Coming,” 50 captioned the post.
But in the comments, instead of talking about those changes, people brought up a similarity between the rapper and Ghost, the character Omari Hardwick plays on “Power.”
Because, in the last episode, the character Ramona Garrity said she’s leaving Councilman Rashad Tate to join gubernatorial candidate Lorette Walsh’s campaign. And they both talked Ghost into running for lieutenant governor.
“50 cent think he ghost 🤣😂,” someone wrote under the rapper’s post.
” This niggas ghost in real life lol,” wrote another.
“You about to pull a ghost mad bad. a Congressman James St. Patrick, good look for you. we need you in there, 💪🙏👀🌎” a third person stated.
And 50’s followers aren’t the only ones who commented on his visit to Capitol Hill. The representative for Illinois’ 1st Congressional District, Bobby Rush, did as well. He did it while addressing 50’s push for more diversity in TV and film.
“It is important that we see people who look like us in government AND on the big screen,” Rush tweeted on Wednesday. “Thank you @50Cent, @naturinaughton, & @STARZ for coming to speak w/ me about the importance of diverse programming.”
