50 Cent thinks he knows why “Empire’s” ratings dipped in its second episode of the season — too much “gay stuff.”
“There are 3 million less viewers who tuned into last weeks Empire episode!!!! did you watch it?” Fiddy said in his Instagram post. “We could not take the extra gay stuff or celebrity stuff last night!!!!”
50 Cent chimed in with his own commentary by urging Taraji P. Henson‘s “Empire” character “Cookie” to call him for help.
“EMPIRES TV RATINGS TOOK A HUGE HIT. Ok I’ll stop now. COOKIE CALL ME BABY. I’ll tell every body to watch the show for you. LOL,” he wrote.
“Empire” attracted a massive 16 million viewers during its premiere last week. But the ratings dipped on Wednesday nights viewing to 13.7 million viewers. While those are still huge numbers, 50 Cent has a long-running spat with “Empire” and jumped at the chance to gloat.
The rapper, who in the past has accused the Fox series of copying the promotional campaign of his Starz drama “Power,” mocked the Fox series last week on Instagram after it took a dig at him in its Season 2 premiere.
The rapper is being petty no doubt because his hit series “Power” does not compare to “Empire”.
