Epic failure: When will people learn that social media is not the place to air dirty laundry? What’s even worse is that this celebrity “TEA” is sad, and not entertaining at all. Rapper 50 Cent dropped a semi-heartfelt comment under a video posted by his 19-year-old son, Marquise Jackson, as an attempt to reach out and mend their father-son bond.
The two haven’t seen eye-to-eye nor have spoken to one another in a number of years due to the toxic relationship between 50 and Marquise’s mother, Shaniqua Tomkins.
“You will be 20 in a few months I’m happy to see you in good spirits. You be strong out there on your own boy. You are a grown man now,” said 50.
Marquise promptly replied to his father post:
“Didn’t think you knew how old I was u missed a few birthdays. I’m happy to see you have kind words to say to me this time.”
The Shade Room captured the following screen grab.
Now here comes ‘Momma Bear’ spitting words that’ll cut you right down the middle, interrupting the brief the father-son moment.
“Miserable, unstable, bum ass n***a! You’re so miserable! Go pick on them boys who put that hot led up in your a**! Oh! I forgot you like to pick on women and children,” she spewed. “Them boys in Brooklyn did you dirrty!! Go beat up your other baby mother, oh you did that already and you’re on 3 years probation. Go make sure [your] son’s motor skills are correct. Can he talk???”
Sheesh, was that called for Shaniqua? Maybe in her mind she’s already justified because of whatever issues this dysfunctional family have faced.
In perfect 50 fashion, he replied back with a meme holding his young son, throwing shots at Shaniqua.
Many readers flocked to the post sharing their own ‘Dr.Phil’ advice. See the post that started it all, but there are so many comments, you’ll be digging forever to get to the ones between the family.

It’s evident that all three of them have a lot of built up anger against each other but Instagram is not the place to handle it.
To Shaniqua, let these men heal! We have a powerful black man who may have made plenty of mistakes in the past, but has a chance to make it right today. Let 50 and Marquise repair their relationship with no interference. Please sistah, we beg of you.
Peace and blessings.
