Yep,i knew one day 50 Cent’s mouth will put him in trouble. After the rapper mocked an autistic airport employee, Andrew Farrell in a video clip on Tuesday (which have since been deleted). In the video,the ‘in da club’ singer followed Mr, Farrell,saying ‘new generation is crazy” .
A fan of the rapper and instagram user revealed he attend the same school with Andrew and wrote;
“I went to school with him,” Stone wrote. “He has extreme social difficulties, just to let you know. He has a hard enough time getting through life without jacka–es like you making fun of him. I hope you feel good about yourself. You just lost a huge fan.”
50 publicly apologized after more fans bashed him for his comment. He said;
“While the incident at the airport resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding, I am truly sorry for offending the young man,” he said in a statement. “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.”
Farrell’s family also released a statement,accepting his apology and thanking people for their support
“We would first like to thank everyone for the amazing amount of support that they have shown over the past few days,” “It has been an emotional roller coaster that we are ready to put to rest. … Though a letter of apology will not undo what 50 Cent has put our family through, we are choosing to forgive.”
“A great lesson can be learned from this heartbreaking situation,” the statement continues. “Regardless of the way that another person appears to you, it is never OK to publicly humiliate them via social media.”
