‘Celebrity Justice’ reports that the British government’s Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) is investigating a growing number of complaints over the 50 Cent’s ‘I Am What I Am Campaign’ ad campaign for Reebok and its reference to the infamous incident in which the rapper was shot nine times in Jamaica, Queens.

Cope has been quoted as saying: “I say all parents should boycott Reebok until such time as they pull the ad and apologize.”
