50 Cents has faced criticism for his appearance after surprising Super Bowl viewers during Sunday’s epic halftime show.
The rapper, 46, was not supposed to be in the showcase but was joined by Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, EminemMary J Blige and Kendrick Lamar in giving their fans a stellar performance.
However, after his comeback – a nod to his hugely successful In Da Club video – some fans took to social media with unkind words.
Some internet jokes have cast shade on his physique with the star looking to have gained a bit of weight.
However, he was not prepared to let those words come to him and laughed at those who were mocking him.
Quick share Instagram with Eminem from the night, 50 Cent – real name Curtis James Jackson – wrote: ” I call this teasing me, They are just teasing me because they know I can lose weight. That’s why I laugh at them.
“Obesity only applies when [sic] ashamed of your fat. LAUGH”
His words earned him plenty of applause in the comments, with one fan saying: “My men aren’t even fat lol.”
Another agreed and commented: “Yeah you told me 50! No insecurities around here.”
And a third said: “The haters are crazy because he’s had to hold on to the industry for over 15 years and still keep going strong with his TV shows.”
Others started rumors that his weight gain might actually be because he needed to get heavier for a new movie role, although there is no evidence to suggest this is true.
He continues to use the publicity feature to try to promote his merchandise to his followers.

It also sees Lose Yourself singer Eminem received the knee — a gesture that became the subject of controversy when former NFL linebacker Colin Kaepernick used it as an act of protest against police brutality and racism.
Although there have been reports that the NFL has warned the star against doing so, they have disputed the claims and Dr Dre has backed the proposals saying that they only make “small” tweaks to performance.
