Meet 50 Cent, the man who likes to wear his panties so everyone can look at them.
Well, under a new by-law, some of his ‘records’ will be illegal in public places in glittering Brighton (sort of like London’s little sister on the south coast).
For why? Because he is offensive to the gays. Lyrically, not just aesthetically…Nasty piece of work Buju Banton (most famous track: ‘Boom Bye Bye (in a Batty Boy Head)’ Translation: ‘Shoot gay men in the head’) was banned from playing the gay Mecca that is Brighton and the council have decided to take it a bit further and threaten to remove the licence of any bar or club that plays ‘hate lyrics’. Like some of 50 ‘I ain’t into faggots’ Cent’s, erm, oeuvre.
‘We have a very good record on equality,’ said someone very high up in Brighton and Hove council (and it’s true! They do!). ‘And we felt it was important to include this in the licencing policy.’
Nice work people.
