(CBSLA.com) — Actress Vivica A. Fox has set off a firestorm over comments she made about her ex-boyfriend Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson Sunday on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live.”
The actress, 51, is scheduled to appear on an upcoming episode of the hit Fox series “Empire” and WWHL host Andy Cohen asked her about comments the rapper had made about the show.READ MORE: Rakell, Stolarz Help Ducks End Skid In 4-0 Win Over Senators
“What were your thoughts when 50 Cent blamed the season ratings dip on ‘gay stuff’?” Cohen said.
What she said next left Cohen and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss reeling.
“First of all, you know the pot called the kettle black is all I’m saying,” Fox responded.
Cohen zeroed in, asking if Fox was implying 50 Cent is gay.READ MORE: Lakers F LeBron James Fined $15,000 For "Obscene Gesture"
She clarified that “he’s not,” but that a “XXL” magazine cover 50 Cent posed for in 2010, where his arm was draped over rapper Soulja Boy, made her question his sexuality: “We had a great time. He just seems like he’s got something that’s not quite clear.”
Burruss exclaimed, “That was some tea! That was shade. That was major shade.”
Fox tweeted after the show to confirm that she wasn’t backing away from her comments.
Soulja Boy and 50 Cent responded to Fox on Twitter and Instagram by posting unflattering photos of the veteran actress with sexually explicit and offensive captions that criticized her age and looks.
Soulja Boy’s photo was later deleted after Fox apologized for including the young rapper in the media melee.MORE NEWS: Black Friday Safety: More 'Smash-And-Grab' Robberies Prompt Increase In Mall Security, Pleas To Be Aware While Shopping
