London, Mar 15 (ANI): Rapper 50 Cent has sparked outrage by mocking Japan’s earthquake and tsunami victims on Twitter.
As the death toll continues to climb from the devastating 9.0 earthquake, the singer took to his Twitter account to comment on the catastrophe.
“Look this is very serious people I had to evacuate all my hoes from LA, Hawaii and Japan. I had to do it. Lol,” the Daily Mail quoted him as writing on his Twitter page.
He added shortly afterwards, “Nah this is nuts but what can anyone do about it. Let’s pray for anyone who has lost someone.”
The rapper later admitted that he Tweets for shock value, saying: “Some of my tweets are ignorant I do it for shock value. Hate it or love it. I’m cool either way 50cent.”
He sent out his remarks on the social networking site as millions on the west coast of America were put on a tsunami alert following the disaster in Japan.
“Wave will hit 8am them crazy white boys gonna try to go surfing.” he tweeted. (ANI)
