And it's safe to say that people are starting to vent their frustrations out on one another when it comes to who to vote for.

Numerous celebrities have been coming forward with endorsements for either Donald Trump or Joe Biden...

And John Legend clearly isn't happy, as he decided to hit out at Lil Wayne for just that.

50 Cent was the first to go in on fellow rapper, Lil' Wayne, after he spoke about endorsing Donald Trump.

John Legend followed suit shortly after. You really can't make these things up...

Now, we are mere weeks away from the highly anticipated presidential election...

So, of course, both parties are trying to salvage any last votes they can get...

Because, as you will all be aware...

It seems that there is some serious competition between the two.

Of course, the election couldn't have fallen on a worse year...

But it has been powering on ahead... despite many setbacks.

Trump's presidential campaign has been hitting rocks...

And things took an ultimate turn for the worst when at the start of October, the president and the first lady, Melania, tested positive for COVID-19. Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together and that they felt fine, but after just a few days, he was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Center.

Despite the huge worry surrounding Trump's health...

He was discharged just a few days later and told the nation "learn to live with COVID."

In the days following his diagnosis, Trump continued to insist on how he was "feeling better than ever"...

And even though his positive test resulted in the second presidential debate being called off, Trump and Biden have been equally battling for voters over the last few weeks.

But there is someone who appears to have been won over by Trump's efforts...

Rapper 50 Cent has appeared to endorse Trump on social media by urging his followers to vote for the president in the upcoming election.

And, after hearing what he had to say...

Reactions came in very strong, despite being mixed.

Of course, some were glad to hear that 50 is supporting Trump.

With many praising him for not trying to appear "politically correct."

Others, however, were less than impressed.

The star then posted what seemed to be a screenshot from CNBC breaking down Biden's tax plan...

And it's this plan that appears to have turned 50 Cent's head.

"What the f**k! (Vote for Trump) I'm out," he said in the post.

"F**k New York. The Knicks never win anyway," he added, referencing the city's basketball team.

That wasn't all...

He then concluded the post by saying: "I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people, sixty-two percent are you out of ya f**king mind."

What on earth is going on in this man's head?!

But it didn't take long for the rapper to sit down and asked himself that very question, before making a sudden U-turn in his political advances.

On October 25th, the rapper shared a video virtual interview that talk show host Jimmy Fallon conducted with his ex, comedian Chelsea Handler.

In the interview, Handler criticized 50 Cent's statements, telling Fallon: "[50 Cent] shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook."

She went on:

"So I haven’t heard back from him yet, but I am willing to, you know, seal the deal in more ways than one if he changes his mind and publicly denounces Donald Trump. I might be willing to go for another spin… if you know what I’m talking about."

Well, 50 Cent clearly watched the interview...

And he decided to retweet it with an unexpected comment.

He tweeted this:

"F*** Donald Trump, I never liked him. for all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL."

It seems that now, 50 Cent really doesn't like Trump...

And he's gone on to demonstrate this by attacking those who have been endorsing him.

Rapper Lil' Wayne posted this eye-opening tweet yesterday:

"Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump, @potus, besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done," he wrote, alongside a smiley snap of him and the president.

He also revealed how he's excited about Trump's Platinum Plan...

And he believes it will "give the community real ownership."

Predictably, people weren't impressed with Lil' Wayne's endorsement of the president...

And one of those people is 50 Cent, of course!

50 decided to rip into Lil' Wayne by reposting his selfie with the president...

And writing: "Oh no... WAYNE, I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE."

And now John Legend has come out with comments on Lil Wayne...

"Some of your former favorite rappers have been taken in by these lies," Legend said. "I think they even founded a new supergroup, it's called the Sunken Place"

John Legend performed on Monday night, in support of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris...

And decided to throw shade at all those supporting Trump.

Legend addressed the crowd at the event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania...

"Now, some people see the meanness, the bullying, the selfishness of Donald Trump and they mistake it for strength, a kind of twisted masculinity," he said. "Some see his greed and they mistake it for being good at business." "Some of your former favorite rappers have been taken in by these lies. I think they even founded a new supergroup, it's called the Sunken Place" — talking about the movie Get Out.

He continued...

"But Trump's Platinum Plan for Black folks is nothing but fool's gold, because you can't bank on a word he says," referring to Trump's promises to the Black community. "Ask the students of Trump University. Ask all of the contractors he stiffed. Ask people his charity was supposed to help before it was shut down for being a fraud. Ask all the Black and Brown Americans who are dying from this virus and losing their jobs under his watch." "The president isn't strong," Legend continued. "He's a coward."

"And his career in business and in government has been failure after failure after failure," he said.

"We need a president we can trust. That's the kind of president Joe Biden will be. And he won't only reverse the damage of the last four years hand-in-hand with Senator Kamala Harris, they will build back a better economy and country than ever before."

Celebs really are divided over the subject...
