50 Cent Announces Pronoun Change: ‘I’m A Thing’
50 Cent is changing his pronouns as he no longer feels as though he identifies as a human. Instead of using he/him pronouns, he wants to be labeled as a thing/it.
“Please refer to me as the thing 50cent, I do not identify as a person anymore I’m a thing,” he wrote in an Instagram post. “Thank you in advance.”
“He done went full Prince,” one fan commented on the late musician’s infamous name change to a symbol in 1993.
“Thing 1 , thing 2 , thing 50,” one fan joked, referencing the Dr. Seuss book The Cat In the Hat.
Another fan compared him to Diddy, who has changed his name multiple times during his career, “He did waaaaay better then Diddy.”
His post made headlines and got a lot of comments from fans so he decided to clarify his initial post.
“Yes I identify as thing, my pronoun is THING/ IT,” he captioned a screenshot of an article about his first post. “Please refer to me as the thing 50cent,or you can say that thing 50cent is the s—!”
“He did get shot 9 times and survived lol I don’t think he’s human either,” one fan wrote bringing up his nearly fatal 2000 incident.
