New York rapper 50 Cent is a straight savage with the jokes. The hip-hop veteran has continued to defend music mogul Russell Simmons after reality TV star Luann de Lesseps accused him of groping her three years ago.
50 returned to Instagram last night (April 9) and blasted de Lesseps with a throwback mugshot.

Yesterday, 50 Cent pulled forward to go at Luann and accuse her of lying on Simmons.
In a recent interview, Luann said Russell sexually harassed her in an elevator a few years ago.
“He grabbed my ass in an elevator, he was just a pig,” de Lesseps said. “I haven’t told anybody about that before. I was grossed out. I was like ‘How dare you.’ He invaded me, he took advantage of me, being who he is, thinking he is all ‘it,’ all everything. He thought he could just do that. I looked at him and said, ‘Don’t ever do that again.’” (The Daily Beast)
Simmons has since issued a statement to address the accusation.
She did not report it at the time. Did Simmons apologize to her, a reporter asked. “No. Of course he didn’t apologize,” replied de Lesseps sharply. Simmons, through his spokesperson Angela Pruitt, did not address de Lesseps’ accusation directly. Instead, Simmons reissued to the Daily Beast a previous statement he had given to Rolling Stone “vehemently denying” the other accusations against him. (The Daily Beast)
