G-Unit boss 50 Cent has come clean on a now-viral mockery clip of himself going in on an autistic airport worker.
Fif issued a public apology for his actions and blamed the incident on an misunderstanding.
“While the incident at the airport resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding, I am truly sorry for offending the young man,” the rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, told Page Six 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.” (Page Six)
Reports claimed the victim’s family wanted 50 to make an apology.
Ken says Andrew has never smoked or had a sip of alcohol in his life. He says Andrew has severe social anxiety, and that’s why he ignored 50 — he also doesn’t know who the rapper is. Ken says the family has lawyered up, and the only thing stopping them from suing immediately is concern about stiff attorney fees. He says they’d be willing to forget the whole thing, IF 50 Cent donates $1 million to Andrew’s GoFundMe page, and makes a face-to-face apology. (TMZ)
50 sparked headlines after mocking Farrell in-person and posting the footage to social media.
In a since-deleted video shared on Instagram and Twitter, 50 Cent can be heard harassing the employee, identified as 19-year-old Andrew Farrell, for how he looks. “What kind of sh*t you think he took before he got to work today? He high as a motherf*cker right here in the airport,” 50 says. “Pupils dilated and everything, looking like… the new generation is f*cking crazy.” (Complex)
Last month, 50 shocked fans by announcing he has a third son on Instagram.
