50 Cent Does The Right Thing And Apologizes For Mocking Autistic Airport Employee
As you all should know by now, 50 Cent made one of the biggest goofs of his career a few days ago when he posted a strange video to his Instagram account, which showed him mocking and following an employee at an airport.
For some reason, the rapper believed the employee was high.
Or actually his exact words were, “High as a motherf–ker,” it’s important we report the facts here. If you still haven’t seen the video, you can click on this link to check it out. You’ll also find me hating on Curtis in the article, so if you’re a fan of the rapper, you might get a little upset.
Anyway, after the video was posted, the wonderful people of the internet quickly let 50 Cent know that the employee in the video was not high. The employee, 19-year-old Andrew Farrell, has trouble communicating because he’s autistic and suffers from extreme hearing loss.
The rapper deleted the video from his account after reading the comments, but he never did release an official apology. However, that has now changed, most likely because the family of Farrell threatened to take legal action if the rapper didn’t send out a sincere apology.
While the incident at the airport resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding, I am truly sorry for offending the young man. 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.
Isn’t that sweet? Hopefully he’ll be more understanding in the future. Sources say the family is happy with the apology and they’re ready to move on.
So let’s do that…
