50 Cent Blasts AT&T As 'Racist' For Dropping Starz & 'Power'

By HHL Editors

50 Cent isn't letting bankruptcy slow him down on the beef front.

The 40-year old, who's never been shy about taking on fellow emcees of any size, has now gone on the attack against AT&T, one of the biggest companies in the world.

What set Fif off is the negotiations between Starz -- which televises his TV show Power -- and AT&T's U-verse. There has apparently been a snag in the talks, and now 500,000 U-verse subscribers are in danger of missing the second half of Power's second season.

In a series of Instagram posts over the weekend, 50 attacked AT&T, saying they are racist for dropping urban friendly channels like Starz. He also pointed out that in April AT&T fired their president for sending out racially insensitive texts and images.

You can see all of 50's IG work below. Do you think AT&T is being racist, or are there other factors at play?

Man Im sorry I have to say this, but AT&T is racist they have had issues in the past and here we go again. 500,000 homes will not be able to view the next episode of POWER. #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO

When this was happening they were saying they had the STARZ and other networks that created programming targeting multiple ethnicity's now I guess (THERE NOT FUCKING WITH NIGGAS).SMH #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO A photo posted by 50 Cent (@50cent) on

Change your cable package from AT&T to anything else. It's 2015 and these people are still racist. They are dropping all channels that are considered urban friendly. This sh!t is sad #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO

AT&T & Direct TV merger is in the government regulatory's hand. The biggest telecom tv deal in history, they can't be trusted not to bully the networks. The deal hasn't happened yet and they already pushing the limits! With racist in charge we are going to be set back. #EFFENVODKA #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO A photo posted by 50 Cent (@50cent) on
