50 Cent is the man getting dragged up and down Twitter after he declared his ‘I’m the Man’ co-star, Chris Brown, was ‘better’ than King of Pop Michael Jackson.
Taking to Instagram on August 31, just two days after what would’ve been Jackson’s 61st birthday, the ‘Wanksta’ rapper praised Brown for his single sales which – as of time reported – are pushing the 70 million mark in the U.S. (a feat that makes him one of the top selling artists of all time). Lifting the post with a caption, “CB better then MJ to me now,” 50 set off a firestorm of clap backs from MJ fans who felt the comparison was not only undue, but unrealistic. Their anger was only furthered when 50 also mentioned some of Jackson’s past legal woes.

Rapper Waka Flocka was among many who slammed 50 for his commentary. So much so, the entertainment mogul swiftly deleted the post.
The damage had been done by that point:
Brown didn’t tolerate the disrespect either.
