Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson is passionate about the shows he executive-produces.
The rapper-turned-EP took to Twitter and Instagram this weekend to decry Starz and its premature streaming of Episode 7 of BMF, because the Detroit-set crime drama was supposed to be on a week-long hiatus.
On Monday, Starz released a statement saying a technical glitch was to blame for the early release, but didn’t say how many viewers actually watched before it was taken down.
“The fan demand for BMF, and specifically this highly-anticipated episode directed by executive producer Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson, is undeniable,” a network spokesperson said in a statement. “There was a technical glitch that allowed fans that have the Starz app, who logged in right at midnight, to temporarily access the episode early. The episode will be released globally, as planned, on Sunday, Nov. 14, across all Starz platforms.”
