Title: 50 Cent Claims Hacker Made $300 Million in 30 Minutes Using His X Account to Promote Crypto

In a shocking turn of events, rapper 50 Cent, also known as Curtis James Jackson III, has revealed that a hacker exploited his website and social media handle to promote cryptocurrency, resulting in a staggering $300 million being snatched in just half an hour.

Taking to Instagram, 50 Cent clarified that he had no association with the $GUNIT cryptocurrency that was being falsely promoted on his platforms. The hacker managed to deceive his followers and make a massive fortune before the issue was addressed.

In his post, the 48-year-old rapper explained, “My Twitter & Thisis50.com was hacked. I have no association with this Crypto. Twitter worked quickly to lock my account back down. Whoever did this made $300,000,000 in 30 minutes.”

Fans and followers were quick to react, with one user humorously suggesting that the hacker deserved a Grammy, while others expressed their disappointment at the deceitful act.

Screenshots of the “$GUNIT” memecoin were shared by 50 Cent on Instagram, revealing the initial market value of around $1 million. It was evident that his X account remained locked, and his personal website was also taken down.

This incident comes in contrast to 50 Cent’s past involvement with Bitcoin, where he allowed fans to purchase his music using the cryptocurrency. Despite rumors of him making millions through Bitcoin, the rapper clarified that he did not profit from the early Bitcoin payments he received.

The unauthorized promotion of cryptocurrency through his platforms has raised concerns about hacking and the need for increased security measures to protect celebrities and their followers from such fraudulent activities.
