New York Daily News reports Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez is under internal investigation following comments made before 50 Cent's appearance at a New York City boxing match in June previous year.

In the caption of a now-deleted post, 50 wrote, "every time you see NYPD tell them I said they fucking up the summer".

The rapper on Sunday posted on Instagram, "I take this threat very seriously and im consulting with my legal counsel regarding my options moving forward".

Gonzalez, who has been with the department for almost 30 years, remains on active duty.
