(Scroll down for video) People reacted in horror and outrage after rapper 50 Cent made fun of an autistic teenager.
The rapper posted a video, showing the teenager pushing a cleaning cart at an airport in Kentucky.
The video showed the rapper asking cleaner Andrew Farrell for his name as he worked at Cincinnati airport.
However, Farrell, 19, did not respond. His actions led 50 Cent to believe that the teen was high on drugs.
On the video, the rapper said: “Look at him, look at him, what kind of s*** do you think he took before he got to work today.
“He is high right here in the airport. Pupils dilated and everything. The new generation is f***ing crazy!”
However, as soon as he posted the video on social media, people responded in anger and pointed out the man has autism.
The 40-year-old rapper, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson, apologized to Farrell after learning that he is disabled. “I am truly sorry for offending the young man,” 50 Cent wrote in statement.
He immediately removed the video clip. However, the parents of the teenager, Kent Farrell and Amanda Kramer, slammed 50 Cent for mocking their son.
