Rapper 50 Cent apologized to Megan Thee Stallion in an appearance on Big Boy’s Neighborhood for his tasteless meme that compared her to Jussie Smollett.

Around the 7:50 mark of the interview, Big Boy and his crew asked 50’s opinion on several hot-button issues, including his take on Megan Thee Stallion and Tory Lanez, to which 50 replied, “I’m gonna apologize to Megan Thee Stallion.”

He continued, “I said some things, and it was because. … On social media, I posted things that, when she was with Gayle [King], she said: ‘Were you intimate with Tory Lanez?’ And she said: ‘What?’ and it was like, ‘No.’ And I was like, ‘Ah, she lying.'”

“At that point, I knew she was lying, it wouldn’t be no reason for them to be around each other. From that, it felt like she was lying to me.”

He added that he did not support Megan throughout the trial because he felt she was dishonest. However, he changed his stance when he heard the recording of the telling phone call from Lanez to Megan’s former friend Kelsey Harris.

“I should apologize to her because when I heard the phone conversation — that made me feel like, ‘Oh s**t,'” he said. “‘ Now I know what happened.’ I’m sure that was probably what swayed people in court, too.”

The meme that 50 has since deleted featured an image of Megan transforming into Smollett. Both images captured them during intimate interviews about their court cases.

The outcomes were hugely different for both. The phone conversation 50 Cent mentioned in his interview was a recording of a phone call Lanez made to Harris the next day from a Hollywood jail.

During the call, 50 noted, Lanez spoke with Harris a day after the shooting incident. He didn’t mention it, but prosecutors argued he was apologizing for shooting Megan.

Lanez asked Harris if she was “good” and which hospital had treated Megan before apologizing to both women for allegedly sleeping with them at the time.

“I know she probably never ever gonna talk to me ever again. … But I just want you to know, bruh, I was just so f**king drunk, I don’t even know what the f**k was going on, bruh, like deadass. I’d never do some s**t like that.”

“Regardless, that’s not gonna make anything right, and that’s not gonna make my actions right, but I’m deeply sorry for that. I never even move like that at all. For real, for real, dawg.”

“I know,” Harris replied with a sigh. “It was a lot, it was a lot that happened.”

The conversation recording and other evidence were enough for a jury to find Lanez guilty of three felony charges. As a result, he is facing up to 22 years and eight months in prison.

Smollett’s ruling was not in his favor. Blavity reported the actor was found guilty of making a false report to the police in 2019 after claiming he was the victim of a hate crime committed by brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo. 

A judge later sentenced Smollett to 150 days in prison and 30 months probation for staging the incident.

Although 50 did the right thing by publicly apologizing to Megan, this isn’t the first time he had to eat his words about the Houston rapper.

Shortly after the traumatic moment in 2020, 50 shared several cruel memes directed toward Megan about the shooting.

Blavity mentioned one of the most jarring memes: an edited clip from Boyz n the Hood that shows Megan’s face on Ricky’s body, which 50 captioned, “Run Ricky, Run.”

He later posted an apology to Megan for taking part in sharing the memes after she did an Instagram Live speaking on her shooting and her injuries.
