50 Cent has always been known to be a comedic individual, even when he doesn’t totally mean to be. Earlier in the week, 50 mocked an autistic airport worker in Cincinnati named Andrew Farrell, who he initially thought was “high as a motherf—-r” and posted the video through social media. Since publishing the video, 50 has received backlash from not only families across the Cincinnati, but numerous fans of his music catalog as well. According to Page Six, all the family wanted from the rapper was a formal apology in regards to his embarrassing remarks to Andrew’s condition.
The video has been removed and 50 Cent has released a statement saying he personally apologized to Farrell and his family. Farrell, 19, suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome and severe hearing loss as well. 50 continues 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.”
