After taking to social media to make fun of mentally disabled Andrew Farrell, who was working at an airport Fiddy was traveling through, the rapper received extreme backlash. He apparently thought Farrell was high while at work. In fact, Farrell just suffers from Autism and mild Asperger’s Syndrome.
Thankfully, he stepped up to admit his mistake.
“I want to turn this misunderstanding into an understanding. There are people that are ignored, mistreated and neglected with disabilities that need our support,” 50 Cent said.
He added, “I am calling on my fellow musicians, actors, entertainers and all others who may not have fully considered this cause to join together to help in any way they can.”
Farrell’s family requested that Fiddy donate $10 thousand to an autism advocacy group, but the rapper went above and beyond by donating ten times that amount to Autism Speaks.
No telling where he got that money from, though, since he is supposedly bankrupt.Read more to see what happened at the airport:
