Cookie Lyon (Taraji P. Henson) called 50 Cent “thirsty” on Wednesday’s Empireand 50 Cent is not pleased — so much so that he expressed his disappointment in a series of Instagram posts mocking the Fox show.

“Can’t believe Cookie would say some s— like that about me,” he says in the first video. “Thirsty? Me? Thirsty? Come on.”

His next post is a meme that reads “F— EMPIRE, TELL EM’ WE SAID,” and the final one is another video. This one, though, features 50 Cent pretending to be a director on Empire. 

The rapper has ragged on Empire before, comparing it the Starz show titled Power on which he has a recurring role and serves as executive producer. His most recent diss was in June, when he Instagrammed a photo of his Power character with the caption, “EMPIRE is some s— you should get for free. Now that power is worth paying for, STARZ premium cable.”
