WATCH: Resurfaced 'Racist' Chelsea Handler Clip Sparks Outrage After 50 Cent Says Black Voters Are Voting For Trump

On Friday, a resurfaced clip from 2020 featuring Hollywood actress Chelsea Handler sparked outrage after 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, visited with House Republicans earlier in the week and said that he would be voting for Donald Trump. 

"I had to remind him that he's a black person, so he can't vote for Donald Trump." the Hollywood actress, who briefly dated 50 Cent in 2011, told Jimmy Fallon during a 'Tonight Show' interview. "He shouldn't be influencing an entire swaft of people that may listen to him because he's worried about his own personal pocketbook." Handler added that 50 Cent "doesn't want to pay 62% of taxes, which, by the way, isn't a plan of Joe Biden's; that's a lie. He doesn't want to pay 62% of taxes because he doesn't want to go from being 50 Cent to 20 Cent." 

The resurfaced clip reignited outrage among conservatives on social media, with Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) writing, "Yes, by all means, please tell another Black man how to think, White lady." Women's sports activist Riley Gaines also criticized Handler, writing, "If you don't hear this and immediately recognize it as an insult to the intellectual capacity and independence of black people, then you're a racist."

"Translation…[Chelsea Handler] had to remind [50 Cent] that she still views black people as slaves & blacks are only allowed to do what liberal white people tell us," wrote Kimberly Klacik. "This is racist. Democrats have not changed. Telling black people what to do since 1619."

50 Cent, who owns the liquor company Sire Spirits, traveled to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to advocate for black entrepreneurs and representation in the alcohol industry. The rapper-turned-businessman visited and took photos with multiple House Republicans, including Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL), and Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA). 

When asked by reporters what he sees from African American men in the upcoming presidential election, Jackson said, "I see them identifying with Trump...because they got RICO charges." As Trump continues to be persecuted by left-wing prosecutors ahead of the 2024 election, black men, many of whom believe that the legal system is against them, have begun to identify with the now-convicted felon. According to recent polling analyzed by CNN, Trump's support among black voters has increased significantly from 2020, going from nine percent to 22 percent.
