50 Cent Issues Apology To Family Of Autistic Teen
While in Cincinnati over the weekend for a liquor promotion, 50 Cent posted an expletive-laced video to Twitter, accusing Farrell, a janitor at CVG, of being high while at work.
“This new generation is crazy. It’s crazy,” 50 Cent said in a selfie video. The rapper then turned the camera on Farrell, who was pushing a cart through the airport terminal. “Look at him. What kind of [expletive] do you think he took before coming to work today? He high as a [expletive] right here in the airport. His pupils dilated and everything. …”
Farrell was not on drugs. The teen’s father, Kent Farrell, said his son has a disability and suffers from social anxiety. The family said they were livid and demanded an apology from the rapper.
50 cent has now apologized to Andrew Farrell and his family, after receiving backlash on social media from an IG vidro he recorded of himself bullying the Autistic airport worker while he was just doing his job.
“While the incident at the airport resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding, please accept my sincere apologies for offending you. It was certainly not my intent to insult you and I wish you and your family well.”
Too little, too late??
