Rappers are known for their dogs, but usually a rapper’s dog is a big, powerful breed to enforce their masculinity, such as a Pitbull or Rottweiler. US rapper 50 Cent however likes a friendlier breed of dog, one he can turn his back on and not wonder if it’s going to ‘stick him’ – his dog however has no such assurances judging by the recent photo Fiddy uploaded to his Twitter account.
This picture of 50 Cent shows him brandishing a knife towards his dog, a Miniature Schnauzer, in an aggressive manner. Naturally this photo has already brought condemnation from animal rights activists, including the charity PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). Michelle Cho, from PETA, wrote on her Twitter page:
“Sorry 50 Cent but that pic is not funny considering how many calls we get from ppl (people) alerting us to dogs who really have been stabbed.”
Fiddy meanwhile has responded to criticism from PETA using the sort of language we can’t really post, even if we were to star out some of the expletives.
We don’t believe Fiddy’s dog is in any real danger as he’s also given the dog a Twitter page of its own, and the two exchange comments back and forth. The photo appears to be a sad, desperate attempt to get some much needed publicity… and it’s worked too.
What do you think of Fiddy’s knife wielding picture?
