50 Cent Threatened With Lawsuit After Harrassing Autistic Teen, Apologizes
Rapper 50 Cent might be headed back to the courtroom.The rapper could reportedly face a lawsuit after mocking a 19-year-old man named Andrew Farrell who suffers from autism and Asperger’s syndrome, according to TMZ.
Farrell, a janitor at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, was filmed by 50 in an instagram video. In it, Fifty claimed that the teen was under the influence while working.
“The new generation is crazy,” 50 says in the clip. “Look at him. What kind of shit you think he took before he got to work today? He high as a motherf**ker, right here in the airport. Pupils dilated and everything…The new generation is fu**in’ crazy.”
However page six reports 50 Cent has personally apologized to Farrell and his family.
“While the incident at the airport resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding, I am truly sorry for offending the young man,” the rapper 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.”
