50 Cent's dog joins Twitter, blasts master, incenses PETA

50 Cent is feuding with Oprah again. No, not that Oprah. Actually, the “In da Club” rapper has a pet dog named “Oprah Whine Free,” and — guess what? — the pooch just joined Twitter. As you can imagine, her Bio is merely “50 Cent’s bitch.” In just 24 hours after signing up, Oprah the Dog already has over 7,000 followers and has been tweeting up a storm, even provoking an outraged response from PETA.

As brainless an endeavor as this might seem, this actually got me thinking about two things: First, Fiddy has a dog named Oprah?! To refresh your memory, in 2006 he went all Jonathan Franzen on the Queen of All Media for not featuring more rappers on her talk-show. (At the time, he said “I think she caters to older white women. So I could care less about Oprah or her show.”) Needless to say, naming his dog after Ms. Winfrey doesn’t seem like an affectionate homage.

Second, Fiddy has a sense of humor? As Oprah’s Twitter ghostwriter, it seems the answer is yes. Oprah’s been using her new account mostly to vent against her master. A few sample tweets: “About to go to the studio w/my dad tonight to make a hit record ‘teach you how to doggie’ its gonna be hotter than the s–t my dad’s writing”; “he aint made a classic since get rich or die tryin”; “f— this I need a new owner.” As a particularly low blow, Oprah added, “DMX wouldn’t have treated me like this…” And you thought Kanye’s feed had cornered the market on crazy!

Mr. Cent responded to these insults with a TwitPic showing him threateningly brandishing a knife in front of his verbose canine. PETA’s Michelle Cho immediately criticized the pic on her own Twitter feed: “sorry @50cent but that pic is not funny considering how many calls we get from people alerting us to dogs who really have been stabbed.”

What thinketh you, PopWatchers? Has Fiddy’s canine alter ego inaugurated a new era of Twitter-based performance art? Has it eclipsed Kanye’s feed in sheer mania? And how long before we start hearing from Paris Hilton’s Chihuahua Tinkerbell in 140 characters or less?

    Naming a dog Oprah isn’t going to help Gangstalicious get past all the downlow rumors.

      ha ha ha ha ha ha EPIC!!!

      this might be the best comment i have seen on any article in a long time.

    • nodnarb

      He didn’t just name his dog Oprah. As the ghost-writer of her Twitter feed, he’s also portraying her, thinking about what she would say… which is sorta like drag. Or dog drag. Or whatever. It all seems pretty gay.

      • nycgirl

        lol! nice analysis.

  • Francisco

    Oprah finally says something interesting. Will she be taking all of her Twits to Australia?

  • Keith

    Whatever. Maybe he has a sense of humor. Just the sense of humor of a moron.

  • silverrose

    never cared for 50 cent, but this is actually funny

  • Abby

    Have to agree with PETA on this one. There are far too many of these things happening for real for it to be funny – celebrities have to remember that a lot of their fans like to emulate them.

    • llevinso

      Are you kidding me? I’m not even a 50 Cent fan but come on! If he was actually hurting the dog I could understand but he wasn’t doing anything to it. It was just a joke. A picture of him with a knife NEAR a dog. Oh my! I guess everytime I chop vegetables I should make sure my cat is at least 25 feet away, lest people get the wrong impression…[eyeroll]

      • nycgirl

        yea, but the pic is of 50 near the dog with the knife, in a threatening manner. just sayin’.

      • llevinso

        Still as a joke nycgirl. Unless you’re saying you actually think his dog has been tweeting this whole time…

  • TQB

    50 needs a hobby. PETA more so.

  • harry

    that was funny!

  • Kate

    I think 50 cent is untalented, but have to admit I found this kind of funny. PETA needs to lighten up and find a sense of humour. I can’t see anyone taking this seriously (i.e. Oh no, 50 cent is threatening to hurt his dog… for all the mean things the dog has been tweeting? If anyone doesn’t see that as a joke – they have bigger problems). PETA is it’s own worst enemy.

    • Katja

      I have to agree. I am firmly against mistreatment of animals, but come on – that picture is pretty funny. Tiny dog with broken leg in pink cast sits on couch while 50 holds a tiny paring knife and glares at the dog, after “the dog” tweets disparaging comments. There is nothing about it that isn’t totally ridiculous, and therefore kind of funny. PETA really *is* its own worst enemy, you’re absolutely right.

      • TQB

        I agree, how dense must you be to really consider this a “threat” of violence? Are the dog’s threats to 50 a matter of concern too?

      • llevinso

        Seriously TQB. PETA is for crazy people. I’m a vegetarian and they irritate me to no end!

    • Vince from NYC

      I really hate it when people who aren’t fans of somebody say they are not talented. If 50 wasn’t talented he wouldn’t have made 100 million dollars.. I’m not a fan of Bieber but I can see the kid is talented. If your getting paid well to perfrom, then the chances are your talented.. Kate, I would bet your not very talented..

      • ^ This Guy ^

        is a Bieber fan.

      • Asher

        Not necessarily true. I actually agree that 50 and Beiber have talent, but unfortunately nowadays you can have the right image and just a bit of talent, and still make a bunch of money.

  • Josie

    I think this is all just an extension of 50’s twitter flirtation with @chelseahandler, whose dog also has a twitter, @chunkhandler. Chunk is actually funny though.

  • LJ

    What doesn’t incense PETA? Bunch of boring fun-killers. I bet Britta is a member.

  • yo

    i hate peta.

    that’s all.

  • Jenn

    Just like any other bitch, she’s a bitch!!

  • Tahler Thacker

    Not funny, 50 cent.

  • o plz

    as if he would do anything to the dog PETA p!ss me off

  • Tasha Smith

    50 Cent has a good sense of humor. It’s funny how much the people from PETA get upset about animals so much. I love animals also, but I love people more. I wonder how much the people from PETA are worried about people losing their lives over senselessness?
