50 Cent Is Really Going Through With That Taco Bell Lawsuit

Jul 23rd, 2008 // 2 Comments

“50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, accuses the Mexican-style fast food chain of ‘diluting the value of his good name’ and employing a guerrilla advertising campaign to fool consumers into thinking he had endorsed the chain, said the lawsuit, filed in Manhattan federal court. … ‘As Taco Bell intended, many customers believed that 50 Cent had agreed to endorse Taco Bell’s products. Indeed, postings on numerous Internet ‘blogs’ castigated 50 Cent for ‘selling out’ by his apparent endorsement of Taco Bell,’ the lawsuit said.” Wait, 50 Cent cares about what bloggers think? I thought his immense piles of money acted as soundproofing from the Internet hoi polloi, although maybe his associates’ albums chronic stiffing has changed his perspective on things.

    ‘diluting the value of his good name’? Oh, I don’t think Curtis needs any help there.

    What exactly was the ‘value of his good name’? He’s called 50 Cent for a reason…
