50 Cent had an incredibly stupid reaction to Michael K. Williams dying.

The superstar of “The Wire” was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment, and authorities believe it’s possible he died after overdosing on drugs. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

After the incredibly tragic situation, the legendary rapper posted a screenshot about Williams’ death and wrote, “Damn if you didn’t see Raising Kanan check it out that fentanyl is no joke, killing the clientele. RIP michael k. williams.” “Raising Kanan” is a show 50 Cent is a producer on.

He then hashtagged the post with “#bransoncognac #lecheminduroi #bottlerover.” Branson Cognac is 50 Cent’s alcohol. You can see a screenshot of the now-deleted post below.

Sometimes, it’s just best to say nothing. If you find yourself wondering if you shouldn’t post at all or use a person’s death to promote yourself, always choose the former.

Nobody cares about your alcohol line or TV show following the death of one of the best actors in America. Not only is it insensitive, it’s also just incredibly stupid.

It blows my mind how stupid some people can be on social media, and I say that as someone who likes 50 Cent’s music.

What was going through his head when he thought this post was a good idea? How in the hell did he think using Williams’ death to promote himself was a solid plan?

It’s just mind-boggling.

Next time, just put the phone down and walk away.
