Taco Bell Offer Made 50 Cent Lose His Appetite

Rapper 50 Cent is very angry at Taco Bell’s offer to have him appear in a campaign for the fast food Mexican chain, and is now threatening legal action.

The company offered to make a $10,000 donation to a charity of 50’s choice if he agreed to change his name for one day. He would also be required to stop by a Taco Bell and rap his order using a new name — either 79 cent, 89 cent or 99 cent like their new value menu.

A representative says, “This is a sleazy and ill-conceived publicity stunt by Taco Bell’s president, Greg Creed, whose disingenuous offer was leaked to the press before it was even presented to 50 Cent’s agent yesterday.”

50 Cent said, “When my legal team is finished with them, Taco Bell is going to have a new corporate slogan: ‘We messed with the bull and got the horns!'”

What I don’t understand is why he is suing? They made an offer, and he refused. Is that illegal? Of course I haven’t had to deal with the law nearly as much as 50 Cent. He might be an expert on the subject.
