Remember when 50 Cent sued Taco Bell for making him an “unauthorized spokesperson” for a new promotional campaign? Well, it looks like the’re counter-suing the rapper calling him “arrogant” How interesting…
Taco Bell shot down the rapper’s lawsuit in Manhattan Federal Court, claiming they are protected by the First Amendment. The lawsuit calls the rapper a “self-described former drug dealer and hustler” who is “arrogant.”
“Jackson has used his colorful past to cultivate a public image of belligerence and arrogance and has a well-publicized track record of making threats, starting feuds and filing lawsuits,” Taco Bell lawyer Robert Lehrburger wrote in the lawsuit. “At the same time, Jackson holds himself out as a giver to charity and one who wants to give back to his community. This lawsuit is another of Jackson’s attempts to burnish his gangsta rapper persona by distorting beyond all recognition a bona fide, good faith offer that Taco Bell made to Jackson.”
50 Cent’s lawyer shot down the lawsuit in a statement to The New York Daily News. “It makes me wonder why they would decide to use his name in their ad campaign if they think he’s such a bad character,” Raymond told The Daily News.

It’s crazy how people abuse the justice system. Both of them (Taco Bell and Sh*tty Cent) need to go somewhere and sit their asses down.
