American rapper, 50 Cent, has accused media mogul, Oprah Winfrey of targeting black males who have been accused of sexual misconduct and assault over white celebrities, who are known and high-profile predators.

In an Instagram post on Thursday, 50 Cent, called out Winfrey over her upcoming documentary, Me too, that focuses on Drew Dixon – one of the women who accused Def Jam Records co-founder, Russell Simmons of sexual misconduct.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the movie directed by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering is “a profound examination of race, gender, class, and intersectionality, and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large.”

Winfrey is said to be one of the leading producers for the movie.

This isn’t the first time Winfrey has “exposed” black men accused of sexual misconduct. In 1993, she had a sit down with the accusers of pop star, Michael Jackson, who had prior to the interview been accused of long-standing accusations of molesting young boys in his Neverland mansion.

“I don’t understand why Oprah is going after black men,” 50 Cent wrote on Instagram. “No Harvey Weinstein, No [Jeffrey] Epstein, just [Michael] Jackson and Russell Simmons this is sad.”

The actor, still in an accusation spree said that Gayle’s interview with R. Kelly convicted the singer in public court even before he was convicted for a number of his crimes. 

“This shit is sad. Gayle hit R Kelly with the death blow documentary. Every time I hear Micheal Jackson I don’t know whether to dance or think about the little boys butts,” he wrote. “These documentary’s are publicly convicting their targets, it makes them guilty till proven innocent.”

To further prove his point on racism against black celebrities, 50 Cent posted an image of some celebrity men who have been accused of sexual misconduct. The image showed Epstein, Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, and Donald Trump with the word “walk” written across their bodies; photos of Bill Cosby and Kelly were included in the post with the word “jail.”

Winfrey and 50 Cent have been at logged heads since 2012.
