50 Cent slams censorship of ads
50 Cent is not happy about the censorship that has followed his movie overseas. Posters for "Get Rich Or Die Tryin'" glamorize gun crime, according to the United Kingdom's Advertising Standards Authority. Posters were also removed in Los Angeles in October after protests. With all of the violence in movies, 50 Cent doesn't understand why his movie has been singled out. "No way was it in my head to capture a film that glorifies violence," 50 Cent told WENN. "Creatively I haven't done anything that wasn't acceptable. Eighteen films that came out before mine utilized weapons on their artwork. But when mine comes out they start protesting. If it glamorizes it when I do it, then it's glamorized period. So we should protest every time."
