50 Cent has offered a first look at Eminem as Richard “White Boy Rick” Wershe Jr. in the Starz TV series Black Mafia Family (BMF) — but not before flaming Starz for accidentally leaking the episode.

Fif didn’t mince his words as he blamed Starz for the fumble, tweeting, “Starz is a shit show, they better sell it fast. They put the f*cking BMF show on, then took it down. what network does shit like that? They just ruined the anticipation of The episode i directed, I WORKED HARD ON THIS. I can’t work with these people anymore.” He then shared screencaps of Em as White Boy Rick and thanked him for being part of the series, “Episode 7 of BMF is the best work i have done directing to date.I’m disappointed that STARZ handled this so poorly. I used my personal relationships to make things happen they couldn’t have made happen. @eminem thank you for doing this for me. I love you bro.”

He added in a third tweet, “They called me saying they wanted to hold episode7 back a week so we can roll right into GHOST.I said cool.Then these shithead people put the f*cking episode out for 3hrs & take it down. This is not ok when I get uncomfortable i make everybody uncomfortable now who getting fired?”

In a statement via TV Line, Starz explained that a “technical glitch” caused the early premiere of the episode:

“The fan demand for BMF, and specifically this highly-anticipated episode directed by executive producer Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson, is undeniable. 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.”

50 was quick to respond to Starz’s statement, replying on Twitter, “well who is responsible for the glitch? Tell them to pack their shit up and change the pass codes, Raising Kanan the streets need a body.”

Take a look at 50’s tweets below and catch Eminem on BMF on November 14.
