50 Cent Responds To Lawsuit Accusing 'Power' Producer Of Racial Discrimination: 'This Does Not Surprise Me'

50 Cent has responded to a lawsuit that accuses a former Power producer of racial discrimination and creating a hostile workplace.

According to legal documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times, which broke the news, one of Emmett’s former assistants, Martin G’Blae, filed the lawsuit on Tuesday, Nov. 1, accusing the television executive of racial discrimination and creating a hostile workplace. 

The documents state that Emmett referred to 50 Cent as “This f–king n–ger” in August 2020 after reading the rapper’s book “Hustle Harder, Hustle Smarter,” which didn’t paint the producer in the best light. G’Blae claimed that Emmett told him: “All you guys are alike. All you guys do is hustle people,” before throwing the book at him.

According to the 24-claim complaint:

“G’Blae was unlawfully terminated due to his race, religion, and disability; in retaliation for requesting reasonable accommodations for his disability; in retaliation for complaining of racial harassment; in retaliation for complaining of unpaid wages; and complaining of and resisting numerous unlawful and unsafe activities and instructions.”

50 Cent took to Instagram to share his thoughts on these allegations:

After the lawsuit against Randell Emmett was filed, 50 Cent took to his Instagram, where he shared a screenshot of the LA Times article, to share his thoughts on the news.

The hip-hop mogul captioned the past, “This does not surprise me this guy is a real piece of s–t. Randell(Sorry Fofty) Emmett,” he wrote before asking, “but wait is he canceled for this?”
