On Thursday, Kanye West – who legally changed his name to Ye a year ago – joked about ‘cutting ties’ with himself as brands continued to severe relationships with him over his anti-Semitic rants.

A fake news headline concocted by UK Rap News, which read: ‘Ye has reportedly cut ties with Kanye West,’ was reposted by the rapper, 45, who added: ‘Had to cut ties bro,’ poking fun at himself after he claimed to have lost $2 billion in a day.

Shortly after, 50 Cent, 47, jumped on what became a sarcastic social media trend, by taking to Instagram and poking fun at Ye’s empire crumbling around him.

Fiddy – real name Curtis James Jackson III – shared two pictured of himself side-by-side with the headline: ‘Curtis Jackson has reportedly cut ties with 50 Cent’.

The In Da Club hitmaker captioned the image: I’m getting rid of anybody who can get me fvcked up like kanye right now ! LOL #brasoncognac #lecheminduroi.’ 

Kanye West then deleted his original ‘cutting ties’ post and shared 50 Cent’s tongue-in-cheek meme while requesting they join forces to bring his Donda Academy to Houston, Texas, where 50 Cent resides. 

According to Newsweek, 50 Cent responded in a now-deleted comment, which reportedly read: ‘OK YE let’s build a school in Houston but go cool off,’ and is said to have added that Kenye is ‘hot right now’ with ‘the Feds all on him.’

50 Cent’s posts shifted from jokey to serious when he became aware of a CNN report alleging that Kanye ‘has a disturbing history of admiring’ Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.

Former TMZ reported Van Lathan Jr. alleged earlier this month that the Heartless musician had professed his ‘love’ for Hitler during a 2018 interview with the outlet. 

In a now-deleted post, 50 Cent wrote next to a screenshot of the CNN article: ‘I have never seen anything like this before. ‘I think Kanye should buy the car he likes the best and just ride off into the sunset, it’s really a wrap.

‘People are really hurt by this s***. I have seen people in this position because of [things] they have [done] not things they have said. Now you gotta master the art of shutting the f*** up! […] You gonna make everybody hot. Go cool off!’

50 Cent’s comments and memes regarding Kanye West comes after the Yeezy mogul claimed he lost $2 billion in a single day as companies have continued to sever ties with the rapper following his anti-Semitic remarks. 

The rapper returned to Instagram on Thursday after his account was restricted earlier this month following his series of shocking posts. 

Discussing the backlash, West – known legally as Ye – insisted that ‘money is not who I am’ as he penned a ‘love letter’ to Hollywood super agent Ari Emanuel, who had called for West to be dropped by all major brands. 

In a post captioned ‘LOVE SPEECH’, he penned: ‘Ari Emanuel, I lost 2 billion dollars in one day and I’m still alive. This is love speech. I still love you. God still loves you. The money is not who I am. The people is who I am.’

In an op-ed for the Financial Times, Endeavor co-CEO Emanuel wrote that there should be ‘no tolerance anywhere for West’s anti-Semitism’ and encouraged brands to full-stop cease partnering and working with the designer.

‘Apple and Spotify, which host West’s music, whoever organizes West’s tours, and Adidas, which collaborates with West on his fashion line, should all stop working with him,’ wrote Emanuel – essentially calling for a blacklisting.

‘Silence is dangerous,’ continued Emanuel. ‘It allows forms of hatred and racism, including anti-Semitism, to spread and become normalized. It coarsens and degrades our society and country.’

Emanuel, himself Jewish, is widely considered to be one of the most powerful men in the entertainment industry. West has repeatedly blamed the ‘Jewish media’ and ‘Jewish community’ in the music industry for toying with him.
