CHELSEA Handler told Jimmy Fallon that she “had to remind” 50 Cent that he is black after the rapper claimed he is voting for Donald Trump.
Handler, 45, appeared on “The Tonight Show” and explained a Twitter feud she had been having since Monday with ex-boyfriend 50 Cent, whose birth name is Curtis James Jackson III.
“You heard about my ex-boyfriend, 50 Cent, right? And his support of Donald Trump?” Handler said.
Handler, who has called Jackson her favorite of her exes, slammed the “In Da Club” rapper after he shared a screenshot from a CNBC show that highlighted a 62 percent tax rate in New York City under a plan from Joe Biden.
“WHAT THE F–K! (VOTE For TRUMP) IM OUT, F–K NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway,” Jackson posted earlier this week.
He continued: “I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f–king mind.”
Fact-checkers with the Associated Press said that the post shared by 50 Cent was missing context – noting that the tax rate is only for high-income earners making more than $400,000 a year.
Handler, taking a harsher tone, called Jackson’s claim “a lie” and insisted that the tax rate increase is not a plan under Biden.
“He doesn’t want to pay 62 percent of taxes because he doesn’t want to go ‘from 50 Cent to 20 Cent.,” Handler said.
She continued: “I had to remind him that he is a black person so he can’t vote for Donald Trump and he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook.”
Handler, who dated Jackson in 2011, hinted that she would be willing to “go for another spin” if the rapper changed his mind about the president.
“I haven’t heard back from him, but I’m willing to seal the deal in more ways than one if he changes his mind and publicly denounces Donald Trump, I may be willing to go for another spin if you know what I’m talking about,” she said.
During their ongoing Twitter feud, Jackson urged Handler not to let politics come between them.
“Oh my God, this is affecting my love life now. @chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don’t let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl,” he tweeted.
Handler responded that she was also willing to pay 50 Cents taxes if the rapper changed his mind about Trump.
She tweeted: “Hey f–ker! I will pay your taxes in exchange for you coming to your senses. Happily! Black lives matter. That’s you, f–ker! Remember?”
