50 Cent Laughs Off NYPD Investigation Into His "Get The Strap" Catchphrase

50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson III) is reportedly under investigation by the NYPD for allegedly threatening Brooklyn precinct boss Deputy Inspector Emmanuel Gonzalez.

According to Page Six, the Power exec is possibly looking at misdemeanor aggravated harassment after he wrote “Get the strap” in a since-deleted Instagram post allegedly aimed at Gonzalez.

Although Fiddy said he was done with Instagram earlier this month, evidently he couldn’t stop himself from posting about the situation on the social media platform.

In a series of three posts, the Hip Hop mogul appears to laugh off the situation.

“what the fuck is going on?” he wrote on Thursday (May 24). “get the strap. LOL.”

An NYPD spokesperson reportedly confirmed the investigation is ongoing.

“There is a formal complaint on file for Aggravated Harassment and detectives are investigating,” the spokesperson said.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, 50’s rep said, “Months ago, Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson filed to trademark the phrase ‘Get The Strap,’ a slogan he has been posting across all of his social media platforms. It is posted in connection with photographs and videos, including many featuring just him or things he is promoting.”

“Taken in its proper context, the specific post in question was neither intended as, nor could reasonably be interpreted as, a threat or call to violence against anyone,” the statement continued. “So the record is clear, Mr. Jackson does not condone or promote the use of violence against anyone.‎ ‘Get The Strap’ is a playful phrase used by Mr. Jackson to punctuate absurd and outrageous situations.”
