These celebs got their share of hot water for making rac1st, sexist, and/or homophobic comments.

Rapper-turned-businessman 50 Cent has come under fire in recent years for homophobic tweets. Shortly after a string of gay teen suicides in 2010, Fiddy tweeted, “If you a man and your 25 and you don’t eat p—y just kill your self damn it. The world will be a better place. Lol.” In response to an insult by Perez Hilton later that year 50 Cent tweeted, “Perez Hilton called me a douchebag so I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding. Wasn’t his but still made me feel better.” However, the rapper has since expressed that he has no problems with gay people and even admitted that his mom was a lesbian.
