Folks are rallying around Megan Thee Stallion after she spoke out about having been shot earlier this month, as Blavity previously reported

For more than a week, people shared abhorrent jokes and patently offensive cracks in the wake of the traumatic incident, including rapper 50 Cent.

Despite his past experience with the trauma of being shot, the Power producer decided to join in on the jokes, sharing an edited clip from Boyz n the Hood that shows Megan's face on Ricky's body, reports Billboard. He included the caption "Run Ricky, Run," in reference to Megan being shot. 

The rapper shared another now-deleted photo of Tory Lanez's head photoshopped onto the body of Mini-Me from the Austin Powers films holding a gun. 

He has since taken down both posts and has offered half-hearted apologies on Twitter and Instagram.

Along with the video of Megan speaking on her experience, he wrote, "Damn I didn’t think this s**t was real. … It sounded so crazy @theestallion i’m glad your feeling better and I hope you can accept my apology. I posted a meme that was floating around. I wouldn’t have done that if i knew you was really hurt sorry."

Social media users slammed the apology as insufficient. Many people said the memes spoke to a general lack of respect for the safety and well-being of Black women.

Some even referenced 50 Cent's own past shootings as a reason why he should have understood why the memes were offensive. 

Others said the content of the apology made it seem like he was only sharing the message because of the backlash and not because he genuinely felt his initial posts were disrespectful.

People also questioned why anyone would joke about the situation before it was publicized that Megan was healthy. 

50 Cent has a long history of offensive comments specifically targeting Black women, and many said this latest situation is further indicative of his attitude surrounding violence against Black women. 

50 Cent was not the only celebrity who had to apologize for their response to the shooting. Model Draya Michele was roundly criticized for making light of the shooting on a recent podcast, where she called the injury a sign of true love.
