50’s Super Bowl Party Gets Attention of St.Petersburg Mayor.
With the Super Bowl happening this week in Tampa Bay, Florida this year, there have been many events like 50 Cent’s private party in a St. Petersburg open airport.
The party was a ticketed event with prices ranging from $85 – $7000 and was hosted on Friday (February 5). The guests in attendance were reportedly required to wear masks and maintain social distance to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Thanks to videos from several sources on the internet including TMZ, the footage shows that the guests in attendance were not wearing masks or spacing appropriately for social distance protocols.
St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman spoke out against 50’s party on Twitter on Saturday (February 6) criticizing the rapper for being irresponsible in hosting the event during a pandemic.
“This isn’t how we should be celebrating the Super Bowl, It’s not safe or smart. It’s stupid. We’re going to take a very close look at this, and it may end up costing someone a lot more than 50 cent.”
Other Celebs Are Not Following Social Distancing
Since the pandemic came to the states in March 2020, most celebrities have been doing their part to educate and abide by the social distancing rules in place.
However, there have been artists like Bow Wow, Trey Songz, and most recently the City Girls who have been seen hosting events at clubs where social distancing was not practiced.

In a similar fashion to what happened to 50 Cent, elected officials from the different cities have spoken in opposition of these parties citing them as irresponsible knowing the influence that the celebrities carry.
While there have been many forms of verbal outrage in the matters of celebrities throwing these parties, there have not been any discussions of penalizing them for not following the social distancing rules.
