50 Cent has launched a scathing attack on a Kiwi Mongrel Mob member's tattoo.
Puk Kireka spoke to NZME about his huge black and red facial tattoo, which spells "notorious", last week, saying it would be a challenge to find employment.
"I know it will be hard to get a job with my tatts," he said.
The rest of the story focussed on Kireka's journey out of an unhealthy lifestyle and meth addiction to playing rugby in the Hawke's Bay.
Kireka said he would always be a member of the Mongrel Mob, but he wants to show a healthier lifestyle for his fellow gang members.
UK newspaper The Sun published an article based off Kireka's interview with NZME, headlined that the gang member "moans he can't find a job".
50 Cent has since posted a screenshot of The Sun's article on Kireka to his 23.2 million Instagram followers and sarcastically expressed surprise at the Kiwi's situation.
"What the f**k is really going on man. I wonder why he can’t get a job," the rapper wrote, adding a facepalm emoji.
50 Cent is no stranger to these kinds of attacks online, and he's no stranger to having not much reason to do it other than to troll and roast.
But it is very unfortunate for Kireka that the message behind what he was trying to say in the original article has been taken the wrong way by The Sun, leading to their roast-worthy and bait heavy headline.
A story that was originally intended to be positive and uplifting has turned into something else completely, and despite Kireka's best efforts to change he is now the subject of an international rapper's internet roast.
Shout out to Kireka for wanting to change and make a better future!
