Rapper 50 CENT is defending his controversial Twitter post from earlier this week, insisting the comment — which implied gay men should commit suicide — was misinterpreted.

The ill-timed post has infuriated members of the LGBTQ community, who in recent weeks have mourned the loss of more than 6 teens who committed suicide in September, largely due anti-gay bullying.

In the post, the rapper stated: “If you a man and your over 25 and you don’t eat p***y just kill your self damn it. The world will be a better place. Lol.”

In denying that his original post (below) was an anti-gay statement, 50 Cent took to Twitter again on Friday, with this explanation:

“The other night I made a joke about a blow job. My male followers enjoyed it. So I then went on to joke about women receiving the same”

“Some how they turned a simple joke about oral sex into a anti gay statement. I have nothing against people who choose and alternative life”
