Rapper 50 Cent is taking aim at talk show host Oprah Winfrey, accusing her of discriminating against rappers.

50 Cent - real name Curtis Jackson - claims the media mogul rarely invites rappers on her show, because she doesn't want to offend her predominantly white viewers.

The 29-year-old explains: "I think she caters to older white women. Oprah's audience is my audience's parents, so I couldn't care less about Oprah or her show."

Winfrey recently made headlines when Ludacris appeared on her show to promote his film Crash and instead got lectured about his controversial lyrics.
