Those who saw the last episode of “Power” saw things get heated between Omari Hardwick‘s character Ghost and Naturi Naughton‘s character Tasha. And it’s something that 50 Cent poked fun at, which he’s now getting backlash for.
Ghost was upset that their son Tariq is involved in the drug game and that Tasha is okay with it. Tasha tells Ghost that she’s accepted who her son is, and he should do the same.
From there, Hardwick’s character warns Tasha to get her “sh– together” or there will be consequences. “I’m going to get your business shut down, and then I’ll take Yaz away from you for good,” he threatens.
Tasha doesn’t seem intimidated, however, and she relays to Ghost that she’ll tell the feds about all the crimes he’s been involved in, namely killing Terry Silver.
After that, Ghost grabs Tasha by the arms and slams her against the refrigerator. He then covers her mouth after she threatens to scream.
He lets her go at that point, grabs his coat and heads for the door. But before he does, Tasha says she’ll kill him if he puts his hands on her again.
“If Tariq dies his blood is on your hands,” Ghost says in return. And then he pushes her head back with his index finger.
After the episode aired, a screenshot of that finger push became a meme, which 50 Cent picked up on. He also included a separate picture of Naughton under the screenshot and was slammed for what he wrote in the caption space.
“POWER never ends, Ghost f–ked up the edges. LOL,” wrote the G-Unit rapper, who’s also an executive producer of the series.
“Damn that’s messed up. Don’t do my girl like that 😟,” someone wrote under 50’s post.
“You dead f–king wrong fofty🤣🤣🤣 if I was her I would quit the damn show 🤣🤣🤣🤣)” wrote another.
“Ah we’re not doing that to the queen. Ghost is a punk,” someone else stated.
And someone else wrote “🤣🤣🤣No one safe around this mf 💯.”
The photo of the actress that 50 posted was taken earlier this week when they went to Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. to talk about diversity in entertainment.
Naughton hasn’t responded to 50’s shot at her yet, but people keep leaving comments on the rapper’s page about it.
