      50 Cent has lashed out at Hollywood for double standards after seeing the poster for the new James Bond movie, "Casino Royale." The "Casino Royale" billboard shows 007 actor Daniel Craig toting a gun.

      "Get Rich Or Die Tryin’ comes out and they want to protest because they see a gun in my hand but James Bond comes out or Mr & Mrs Smith will come out with guns and it’s acceptable," 50 Cent lamented. 50 was alluding to the backlash he caught when the promotional poster for his "Get Rich or Die Tryin’" movie depicted the 30-year old rapper with a gun.

      One version of the the billboards showed 50 Cent in a crucifixion pose with a gun in one hand and a microphone in the other. Despite the rapper’s claims that the image was only intended to communicate his struggle to escape street life, Paramount Pictures pulled some of the ads.

       "You can see any kind of gun there is to see on the covers of films. You can go in Blockbuster and see every gun that was ever made," said 50.  "Let’s not start with 50 Cent and stop with 50 Cent. Let’s do it everywhere else and make it unacceptable period. I would gladly join the rest of entertainment if we get there."
