On Sunday (Nov. 5), 50 Cent hit up his infamous Instagram account and took some time out from his worldwide Final Lap Tour to enjoy his favorite pastime: trolling other famous people. This time, the Queens rap legend took aim at former NBA player Dwight Howard, who is currently facing sexual assault allegations by a Georgia man.

50 posted a throwback photo of himself, actor Denzel Washington and TDE's Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith greeting Dwight Howard courtside at a Los Angeles Lakers basketball game in 2013. Flanked by Denzel and Top Dawg on either side, 50 is seen looking up at Howard with a big smile on his face.

"@dangerookipawaa [Top Dawg] gonna say you made eye contact with Dwight Howard," 50 Cent captioned the photo below along with several emojis. "Man me and Denzel thought that mother f**ker was alright man."

Why Is 50 Cent Clowning Dwight Howard?

While the nature of 50 Cent's Instagram post aimed at Dwight Howard and Top Dawg is a bit unexplained, it may have to do with a sexual assault scandal the former Los Angeles Laker is embroiled in. Back in July, Georgia native Stephen Harper filed a civil lawsuit against Dwight Howard on allegations of sexual assault, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

According to the Associated Press, Harper claims to have been forced into a sexual encounter with Howard and a transgender individual who goes by Kitty. Howard has since denied the allegations and says that the romantic situation was completely consensual.
