On Sunday, Rapper 50 Cent has made infamous cannabis news for openly making fun of an airport employee that he thought was, “high.” It turns out 50 Cent should’ve covered all of his bases. The airport worker suffered from severe autism and social anxiety.
50 Cent douchebaggery video:
In the video, rapper 50 Cent is clearly making fun of 19-year-old Andrew Farell, who is an airport attendee. During 50’s comments, the teenager is not making eye contact or having a change in expression, making 50 Cent’s comments even worse.
An acquaintance of the autistic teenager in the video even states,
“I went to school with him. He has extreme social difficulties just to let you know. He has a hard enough time getting through life without jackasses like you making fun of him. I hope you feel good about yourself. You just lost a huge fan.”
The rapper in his own Instagram video is heard saying,
“He high as a mother fucker. Look at him, what kind of shit you think he took before he got to work.”
50 also comments on his eyes saying that they look bloodshot, to try to convince followers that the worker was smoking marijuana.
The really f**ked thing is that 50 began to taunt the worker himself, swearing at him and trying to make the employee talk. In the video, you can easily see that Farell, who suffers from anxiety, is uncomfortable and simply downright scared.
The artist has now sparked outrage from the family of Farell and other victims of autism. Andrew Farell’s family was talking to authorities and trying to receive payment for 50’s comments. The family also stated that they wanted a donation of $1 million dollars posted to Andrew’s Go Fund Me Page and a sincere apology from 50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson.
50 Cent has made good on one of those promises by delivering a somewhat okay apology by taking down his Instagram photo and by saying,
“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.”
Even though this apology is slightly better than nothing, outrage is still sparking among people who are shocked by the video. You lost some serious fans 50, and you might just lose your money as well.
