Gabrielle Union and 50 Cent are two of the few actors to be executive producers on successful television dramas.
For four seasons, Union starred on BET’s Being Mary Jane (BMJ) while 50 Cent has starred in and produced Power for five. But despite the huge wins for both of them, 50 Cent —in his trolling social media ways— has made a point to create a “feud” between the shows.
Back in August the rapper randomly posted on Instagram a photo of him in a luxury car with the caption, “Remember that other show that thought they were in competition with POWER, what happened to it? I don’t hear anyone talking shit anymore. Now I’m gonna take over BET.”
Seemingly directed toward BMJ, Union commented, “I don’t compete with other artists, only celebrate,”
Fast forward two months and BET announced in October that the series was coming to an end with a two-hour series finale movie.
Poking fun at the feud with 50 Cent, Union jokingly blamed him for the show ending in a recent interview.
“For everyone who’s just really upset that BMJ is coming to a close, please send all your correspondence to 50 [Cent], Curtis Jackson, who has taken sole responsibility for the loss of jobs and your show,” she sarcastically said on First We Feast’s Hot Ones talk show. “So don’t @ me, @ 50.”
The rapper later responded on Instagram with, “Listen I told you things were gonna change Gabrielle, no disrespect with all do respect, I have no respect.”
The series finale of Being Mary Jane will premiere in 2018.
