50 Cent attacks 'Game of Thrones' fans saying "F*** you and your flying dragons"
Rapper and actor 50 Cent has launched an astonishing attack on fans of the HBO series Game of Thrones, calling them "haters" and saying in no uncertain terms: "f*** you and your flying dragons."
This bizarre feud came as a result of 50 Cent promoting the sixth and final season of his television series Power, and while Game of Thrones is also on its home straight, Fiddy is planting his feet in the Power camp, saying in an Instagram post that his show would prove to be better than season eight of Game of Thrones.
Here's a trailer for Power's season six - do you think it could be better than Game of Thrones?
"Power Season 6 is gonna blow you away, GAME OF THRONES ain’t got S**T ON ME," 50 Cent in his Instagram post, but he possibly didn't know what he was about to get into.
"F**k GoT, I ain't watching that s**t with dragons and Starbucks cups. When is season 6 getting aired man?!" said one fan, but otherwise, the tide was turned against the rapper for comparing Power with the HBO fantasy epic.
"Unless you come up with some dragons and a Night King I doubt it:))," retorted one fan, while overall, there was widespread derision that Power could surpass the jostling for the Iron Throne in Westeros. "I love you fofty... but Power is trash and will never have anything on GOT [sic]," added another fan, but this being the internet, the beef was about to escalate.
Fans of Game of Thrones eventually saw fit to photoshop 50 Cent's head onto the body of the dwarf Tyrion (played by Peter Dinklage), and the rapper did not take to this kindly at all.
Posting the offending image to his own Instagram account, 50 Cent took aim at Game of Thrones fans, describing them all as "hating ass".
"This s**t ain’t nothing but hating ass game of throne fans sit there with too much time on there hands mad because. POWER is #1 f**k you and your flying dragons. We on some real life s**t hoe," 50 Cent said, but it feels like he's fighting a losing battle to hype his show beyond that of season eight of Game of Thrones.
I mean, how can he compete with this:
Short answer: he can't. But when the final season of Power kicks off this August, I'll be sure to give it a watch. If only because Fiddy tried really hard to promote it.
