The 46-year-old was spotted heading into Poppy in West Hollywood with a group of pals on Monday, September 6 — hours after he found himself catching heat for sharing insensitive posts following the death of actor Michael K. Williams.

As OK! previously reported, Williams was found dead at the age of 54 at his penthouse apartment in Brooklyn on Labor Day. Although Williams' cause of death has not been revealed, according to the New York Post, drug paraphernalia was found in The Wire star's apartment.

A law enforcement source told PEOPLE that they suspect the beloved actor died of an overdose, and that he may have had heroin laced with fentanyl.

Though many celebrities took to social media to express their condolences, 50 Cent (real name: Curtis Jackson) took the opportunity to share a bizarre tribute on Instagram that doubled as a promotion for his brands.

“Damn if you didn’t see Raising Kanan check it out that fentanyl is no joke, killing the clientele,” the rapper wrote, plugging his Starz show, Power Book III: Raising Kanan, alongside hashtags promoting his wine and cognac lines. “R.I.P micheal [sic] k williams”.

After fans expressed their outrage about his inconsiderate posts, the television producer deleted and shared a new post featuring a previous New York Post article detailing his beef with Williams. "Don’t ever try to understand me. I’m different," 50 Cent captioned the shot. "I don’t do all the fake love s**t."

However, it seemed that the "In Da Club" rapper was in no mood to discuss the criticism his posts garnered.

In a video posted on the YouTube page for GossipBae, a photographer caught the attention of 50 Cent as he arrived at Poppy, and asked if the buisnessman expected the backlash he received.

“What backlash, what the f**k are you talking about?” he shot back as he made his way into the club.

50 Cent is no stranger to raising eyebrows for calling out fellow celebrities — and being called out himself. He's publicly feuded with Wendy Williams, Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent and French Montana, just to name a few.
