Not only was 50 Cent in Washington to advocate for diversity in entertainment, but also to advocate for the Starz network, which airs his hit TV series Power. His goal was to help the network to stay with cable company Comcast Xfinity.
This aspect of the visit should come as no surprise as 50 Cent has publicly expressed his dislike for Comcast CEO Brian L. Roberts, about his handling of the Starz network.
“This is the guy fu**ing up (Power) over at @Comcast for no reason Brian Roberts, mother fu**er look like he been pushed around his whole life. He need to chill out, go to a golf course or sit his a** down some where,” 50 Cent posted to Instagram last week.
Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.), also tweeted a photo with 50 cent and co-star Naturi Naughtonfrom Power, applauding their representation on TV and need for diversity everywhere.
