Rapper 50 Cent is being ripped for using the death of “The Wire” actor Michael K. Williams to promote his liquor and TV show.
The 46-year-old rapper, real name Curtis Jackson, on Monday posted some emojis of wide-open eyes alongside a screenshot of The Post’s exclusive report breaking news of “The Wire” star’s death in Brooklyn.
“Damn if you didn’t see Raising Kanan check it out that fentanyl is no joke, killing the clientele,” Jackson wrote, plugging the Starz show, “Power Book III: Raising Kanan,” based on his childhood in Queens.
“R.I.P micheal k williams,” he wrote, misspelling the actor’s name — and following it with hashtags promoting his line of wine and cognac.
Fiddy soon deleted the post after getting a torrent of abuse for it — but then also posted a throwback to his beef with Williams that started over a separate, fatal feud between mutual friends of theirs, using a screenshot from Page Six.
