NYPD Commander Being Investigated for Allegedly Telling Officers to 'Shoot' 50 Cent 'On Sight'
50 Cent is slamming a New York Police Department commander who is being investigated for potentially putting the rapper’s life in jeopardy.????Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez allegedly told his officers to “shoot him on sight” during a roll call, according to TMZ and the New York Daily News.????That day, 50 Cent was expected to attend a boxing match sanctioned by the NYPD — and the Daily News reports Gonzalez later attempted to say the comment was a joke…????While Roy Richter, president of the union that represents Gonzalez — Captains Endowment Association — told TMZ Gonzalez denies ever making the comment.????But an official NYPD account responded to the rapper on Twitter, saying: “The incident is under internal review.”????In a series of Instagram posts, 50 Cent called Gonzalez a “dirty cop abusing his Power” and “a gangsta with a badge,” saying he’s “not fit to be a commanding officer.”????Stephen J.
Savva — an attorney for 50 Cent, whose birth name is Curtis Jackson — issued a statement to USA TODAY, saying:????"Mr. Jackson takes this threat very seriously and is consulting with his legal counsel regarding his options going forward.”????Adding: “He is concerned that he was not previously advised of this threat by the NYPD and even more concerned that Gonzalez continues to carry a badge and a gun.”????Just a month prior to alleged comment, Gonzalez filed an aggravated harassment complaint against 50 Cent…????After the rapper accused him of shaking down the owner of a club called Love & Lust, writing, “get the strap” — which is slang for a gun.????Gonzalez said he was threatened by a number of 50 Cent’s followers after that, but no charges were ever filed.
