50 Cent Getting Backlash After Mocking Teen With Disorder
50 Cent's humor on social media sometimes gets him into trouble, and sometimes, it's just plain wrong.
During a recent stop at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, the rapper came across an airport employee he believed to be under the influence of drugs. So, he took to social media to share a clip of himself harassing the employee, who has been identified as 19-year-old Andrew Farrell.
"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."
What 50 didn't know or realize was that Andrew suffers from social anxiety and mild autism... and definitely wasn't high.
In an interview with Local 12 Cincinnati, Andrew's stepfather Ken called out 50 Cent for his actions, saying: "You come up and you start talking to a kid you know nothing about. That's not fair. That's a slap in the face," he said. "Here's a guy who people look up to, and he's going to act like that?"
This is just plain wrong.
