Chelsea Handler on 50 Cent Trump Support: 'I Had to Remind Him He Was Black’
Liberal actress makes 'racist' remarks during interview
Leftist comedian and actress Chelsea Handler has defended scolding her ex-boyfriend 50 Cent for his public support of President Donald Trump.
The actress engaged in an all-out feud with the rapper after she shared an image showing tax rates under former Vice President Joe Biden's economic plan.
"WHAT THE F--K! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT," wrote 50 Cent in the caption.
"F--K NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f--king mind."
But Handler defended Biden's tax plan, arguing it "isn't a plan" and called it a "lie" during her interview with "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon.
"So he doesn't want to pay 62 percent in taxes because he doesn't want to go from '50 Cent' to '20 Cent' and I had to remind him that he was a black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump and that he shouldn't be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he's worried about his own personal pocketbook," Handler said.
The liberal comedian's somewhat racist remark echoed Biden's "You ain't Black" comment, which caused massive backlash following an interview with radio host Charlamagne Tha God.
Handler admitted she had not heard back from the rapper but said she is willing to "seal the deal in more ways than one" to get him to denounce Trump.
"I might be willing to go for another spin, if you know what I’m talking about," Handler added.
Handler even offered to pay 50 Cent's tax if he dropped support for the president.
"Hey f--ker! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses," wrote the frequent Trump critic on Wednesday.
"Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, f--ker! Remember?"

The actress responded to the rapper's support for Trump by tweeting him.
"You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend," Handler replied to his tweet on Tuesday.
"Oh my God, this is effecting [sic] my love life now," 50 Cent responded.
"@chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don’t let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl."
Biden's tax proposals could see those earning more than $400,000 a year hit with rates of 62.6 percent for those who live in California and 62 percent for New York City residents.
