In his caption, the rapper expressed his anger at the tax rates and encouraged fans to vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election.

"I don't care Trump doesn't like black people 62% are you out of ya f****** mind," he wrote in the caption.

He reiterated his message on Twitter while sharing a Fox News clip that discussed his support for Trump.

"Yeah, I don't want to be 20cent. 62% is a very, very, bad idea," he tweeted.

A number of celebrities spoke out against Jackson, including his ex-girlfriend, Chelsea Handler. According to Page Six, the pair dated for a few months in 2010.

"You used to be my favorite ex-boyfriend," Handler commented on the rapper's tweet.

On Wednesday, Handler took it a step further and wrote on Twitter that she would pay Jackson's taxes if he retracts his support for Trump.

Handler's tweet came after Jackson urged her not to let their political views come between them.

"Oh my God this is effecting my love life now. @chelseahandler I love ya Gator, don't let Trump and Joe Biden come between us girl. #starzgettheapp," he tweeted on Wednesday.

Jackson's comments were also met with messages of support.

"And @50cent just said, 'Vote Trump' after seeing what Slow Joe's tax rates will be! Let's go!!!" conservative commentator Tomi Lahren wrote on Twitter.

Conservative pundit Candace Owens shared an eight-minute Instagram video defending the rapper's political views and bashing critics.

"It's because he's smart and you're not, OK?" Owens says in the video.

According to Biden's campaign website, the presidential candidate's tax plan wouldn't affect those making less than $400,000 a year.

"He won't ask a single person making under $400,000 per year to pay a penny more in taxes, and will in fact enact more than one-dozen middle-class tax cuts that will finally give working families the financial support they deserve," the website reads.

Representatives for 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
