50 Cent is in trouble again! The rapper is in hot water for bullying a mentally disabled airport employee and posting a video of the incident. Now fans are slamming him for his insensitivity!
50 Cent, 40, can’t seem to get his foot out of his mouth these days! The hip hop superstar posted a video of himself bullying a mentally disabled airport employee who he accused of being high on drugs. Not nice! It turns out the man just has a mental disability. Fans have reacted on twitter, and they are not happy about it.
As per usual, the rapper has found a way to anger someone else, but this time his actions were unacceptable. In the video posted online, he can be seen saying, “This new generation is crazy.” The video then cuts to a man, who was later identified as Andrew Farrell a janitor at the airport, who is simply doing his job. 50 then accuses the man of being “high as a motherf–er.”
It turns out that the 19 year old suffers from autism and Asperger’s syndrome and wasn’t high at all. In fact, Andrew’s family is even thinking about filing a lawsuit against the rapper. You know, unless of course he offers an apology and 1 million dollars via a Go Fund Me account set up for Andrew.
If that’s not bad enough, after posting the video to his Twitter account, fans had a less than favorable reaction for 50. Let’s just say that many of them didn’t take too kindly to seeing a superstar like him bully a harmless man while he was just trying to do his job.
Yikes! This is not his year! No one was holding back when it came to giving the star a piece of their mind! In fact, the backlash has only continued. He has since deleted the video, but of course, it is still running rampant across the internet. The only thing that might help ease the tension is if 50 offers Andrew and his family a public apology, and he definitely should. Whether or not he knew the boy was autistic, he needs to extend an olive branch and apologize for any harm he has caused. Let’s hope he puts down his pride and chooses to do the right thing!
