As the entire world has seen by now, 50 Cent threw out the worst ceremonial first pitch of all time last week before a New York Mets game. The toss was so bad rumors have been circulating that 50, who has a new album coming out, intentionally threw a terrible pitch just to gain some publicity. The rapper has put those rumors to rest with a bang.
On Tuesday, 50 Cent held an AMA (Ask Me Anything) segment on Reddit. When someone asked him what happened with the pitch, he said the embarrassing result has to do with “excessive masturbation.”
Was he joking? Most likely. Did he have that answer planned going into the AMA? Absolutely. But what can you say to something like that? If the guy’s shoulder was bothering him because he was tugging it so much, you have to respect him for owning up to it. These things happen.
