50 Cent Is “Heated,” Claims Film Industry Bias

Posted By on December 6, 2006

50 Cent reportedly has some complaints about bias in the film industry; specifically the fact that concerned citizens who rallied against promotional material for his film, "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'," haven't done the same for similar billboards used for other movies.

According to recent reports, after enduring protests and criticism for holding a gun on posters for his debut film, 50 is speaking out about the relative silence surrounding billboards featuring a gun-toting Daniel Craig in advertisements for "Casino Royale."

The Queens, NY rapper (born Curtis Jackson) is said to have cited "Casino Royale" and "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" as examples of a double standard in the film industry. Undoubtedly feeling singled out, 50 is reportedly asking for a universal rule about weapons in movie posters.

In related news, 50 is currently promoting his latest film, "Home of the Brave," which focuses on the war in Iraq and also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci, Eva Mendes and Jessica Biel. "Home of the Brave" opens in theatres on December 15.
