50 Cent also added, “He’s fine no charges are being pressed. 🤷🏾‍♂️”

See the post below.


It wasn’t long before Curtis drew criticism and backlash for his reaction to Michael’s assault.

One person tweeted: 

The fact that 50 Cent came out and said Michael Rainey (Tariq from Power) was NOT sexually assaulted and that’s he’s fine when he clearly felt uncomfortable and immediately left when that girl touched him in his private parts is part of the problem in todays society.

Women can be predators too.

Women can sexually assault others as well and women need to be held accountable.

If he did that to her his whole life and career would be up in FLAMES.

We have to protect our young black men too!

Another person tweeted: 

Of course, 50 cent dismissed Michael Rainey Jr. the lead in one of his shows being sexually assaulted ON CAMERA.

But some of y’all put him on a pedestal when it comes to Diddy. His motivations are strictly personal.

He does not gaf about victims of domestic & sexual violence.

Read a few more reactions below.

50 Cent deleted his post about Michael Rainey Jr. and shared that he attended a Diddy roast that benefitted victims of sexual assault.
