50 Cent finds himself in a Caribbean courtroom this week after he was arrested for using ‘indecent language’ on stage in St. Kitts the other night (apparently they really hate swear words over there).

40-year-old 50 headlined the St. Kitts Music Festival but fell foul of the law after using the word ‘motherfucker’ several times in front of 40,000 concertgoers, despite being warned not to use any profanity.
He was formally arrested and charged for “making use of indecent language” during his performance, and had to surrender his travel documents ahead of a court appearance today.
50’s spokesperson Amanda Ruisi says:
Mr. Jackson (50 Cent) was only booked to host the show. When he arrived at the festival, organisers asked him to perform, he obliged, and used the DJ they had there. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the clean version to his tracks, so there were profanities used during his performance. The show was a great success, and he will make sure for future trips to St. Kitts that he leaves the ‘motherfuckers’ in the United States.”
Seems a bit weird to run a strictly no-profanity concert and then book 50 Cent to perform there, doesn’t it? Literally the most swear-y rapper of all time. That’s essentially asking the guy to cut out like 50% of the lyrics in his songs. What, wasn’t Will Smith available or something? 50 Cent is as much a professional swearer as he is a rapper, so a very strange move for the St. Kitts Music Festival to set him up for failure right there.
P.S. Still a jam:
