Curtis Jackson, better known as 50 Cent is used to getting heat for his Starz show 'Power'. Most recently, the he faced backlash from 'Power' fans for replacing Joe’s verse with Trey Songz on the show’s theme song. But this time it’s 50 who’s dishing out his disappointment. He began trolling Comcast Xfinity yesterday on social media when he found out the telecommunications conglomerate was removing Starz from their network, thereby taking away 'Power' from their channels.
50 began by posting a snippet of himself from an episode of the show. “I’m sick right now so I lose millions of viewers today because of Comcast,” he wrote. “They are dropping STARZ no more POWER, I’m dead.”
50 then began a lengthy Twitter campaign aimed at rallying fans to call their Comcast provider to try to convince the mega-company to keep his beloved show 'Power'.
'Power' is currently midway through its sixth season. Because Comcast Xfinity provides TV service to a significant portion of Americans including right here in New England, their decision to drop Starz could cause the show’s ratings to drop.
