50 Cent arrested for using swear words on stage
50 cent was arrested in the caribean over the weekend. According to TMZ, the rapper who was arrested Saturday on charges of profanity after dropping some f-bombs during his performance of “P.I.M.P.”
In a statement to Rolling Stone, 50 Cent’s representative said that the artist “was only booked to host” the St. Kitts Music Festival, but when he arrived “the festival organizers asked him to perform.” 50 Cent was unaware of the Eastern Caribbean Law which stated that cursing in public is illegal in Saint Kitts and Nevis. This is sort of terrifying. What if someone stubs their toe and yells out “shit castle,” or is cut off in traffic and calls the offending driver a “blind horse-fucking lane Nazi”? The rep said further.
“Unfortunately, they didn’t have the clean version [of 50 Cent’s] tracks, so there were profanities used” while he rapped along to the music, the representative explained.
The rapper reportedly paid $1,800 to bail himself.
