Why You Should Be Careful Swearing Overseas
Rapper 50 Cent recently learned the hard way why you shouldn’t swear in other countries. Recently the artist was arrested in St. Kitts for saying “motherf—.” According to TMZ, “Cops showed up after the performance and took 50 to the station, where he was booked for using profanity in public. It’s a minor offense, but he had to stick around until Monday when he’ll go to court and pay a fine.
