50 cent makes $50 million in one day & shut down World Star Hip Hop?
Rapper 50 Cent sent a tweet out to his 3,888,543 million followers and took credit for shutting down popular urban website, WorldstarHipHop.com.
The site went down without warning earlier today (January 24th).
Just moments ago, 50 Cent took to Twitter and took credit for the site’s disruption, squashing rumors that the site was seized by Homeland Security, like several other websites in November of 2010.
“I don’t know why people underestimate me. I just shut down WORLDSTAR for future advertising contact thisis50.com suckers lol,” 50 Cent tweeted. “I put worldstar to bed, you don’t believe try me I will shut your sh*t down. Lol.”
In November of 2009, 50 Cent filed a lawsuit against the website, claiming his image and content was used on the website without permission.
“I have lawyers on retainers and I have to pay them so much money anyway, so we’ll go back and forth to court until (they) can’t afford a Subway sandwich,” 50 Cent said in 2009. “It’s already too late for (them).”
Reps for WorldStarHipHop.com have not responded to a request for a statement as of press time.
50 issued an ominous prediction that may come true this week.
“I predict 2 more web sites will shut down this week. Take a guess who they are. I’m sick of the hate I’m to strong,” 50 Cent tweeted.
Were 50 Cent’s tweets this weekend the most valuable tweets of all time?
I think they probably were, not only did he shut down World Star Hip Hop this year but also made $50 million from tweeting!
Penny stock HNHI — a distributor of headphones — were surging after 50 Cent tweeted about it all weekend.
The stock ended up closing up a staggering 240%.
Here’s the chart:
Check out the tweets that made 50’s pockets go ka-ching!
This SEC filing shows that he owned 30 million shares. Seeing as each one gained $.29 today, that’s nearly $10 million for one weekend of tweeting.
