    50 CENT I APOLOGIZE For Mocking Autistic Man

    Breaking News
    [​IMG]50 Cent's manning up and admitting his attempt to crack jokes on social media turned into an insult -- albeit unintentionally -- to a 19-year-old airport employee with autism.

    50 says, "It was certainly not my intent to insult him or the disability community, which is a source of great strength in America. I have apologized personally to him and his family."

    Fiddy posted a video of himself mocking Andrew Farrell for being "high as a motherf*****." Andrew is not only autistic, but also suffers from Asperger's Syndrome and severe hearing loss.

    In his apology, first posted by the NY Post, the rapper added ... "While the incident at the airport resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding, I am truly sorry for offending the young man."

    As we first reported, Farrell's family was talking to attorneys about a possible lawsuit against 50 Cent, but a rep now says they'll be satisfied with a sincere apology.

    50 has deleted the video. Further financial crisis averted. Maybe.

    I'm not gonna lie. If someone made a fuckton of money off writing songs about being a gangsta and shooting people and other shit like that I'd try and get a little of it if he did that to my kid.

    It's ok. The severely retarded are allowed to make fun of the mildly autistic. It's the law. Look it up.

    Fitty Cent just got old.

    He's taking issue with someone ("the new generation") allegedly being high...

    What a retard. Fiddy, I mean.
    Let's say, best case scenario, you're only a celebrity ridiculing someone who may be on drugs and cleaning bathrooms at the airport. :facepalm:

    Hopefully this will raise Autism awareness, people will stop calling them retards and 50 Cent will use what little brain he has left to help people like this young man.

    Kids like this have enormous difficulty getting jobs and this illustrates why.

    I don't get why anyone gives a shit about what Fiddy says. Imagine a serious newscast with Walter Cronkite, "and in other news, Fiddy Cent mistook an autistic boy for being high while he was working at the airport..."
