NYPD Commander Under Investigation for Allegedly Threatening 50 Cent’s Life
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that a Brooklyn precinct commander is being investigated for allegedly telling officers to shoot rapper 50 Cent on sight.
This was confirmed by the New York Police Department to THR in a statement in which they said that “the matter is under internal review.”
Apparently, Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez told officers during roll call last summer to shoot 50 Cent if they saw him. “The inspector just said that at roll call,” a source told the New York Daily News. “I’m like WTF.”
Gonzalez has been with the NYPD for nearly 30 years and remains on active duty.
50 Cent did not know about the threat until he read the headlines Sunday morning. And he has now responded via his Twitter. “This is how I wake up this morning. This guy Emanuel Gonzales is a dirty cop abusing his POWER. The sad part is this man still has a badge and a gun. I take this threat very seriously and I’m consulting with my legal counsel regarding my options moving forward,” 50 Cent tweeted.
