50 Cent has angered the internet after a video surfaced showing the rapper appearing to making fun of an autistic employee working at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
In the short clip – which 50 Cent posted to Instagram and later deleted – the rapper shot footage of himself approaching a young man pushing a cart through the airport.
The young janitor – later identified as 19-year-old Andrew Farrell – shook his head and refused to respond when the rapper asked his name after lamenting that his generation was “Crazy.”
50 Cent accused the teen of being “High as a mother–er” and said his pupils were “Dilated and everything.”
“I was pushing my cart and I’d just started work and basically was minding my own business,” Farrell, who lives in Kentucky and graduated from high school in 2015, told the News.
He didn’t know who 50 Cent was when the “Candy Shop” rapper walked up and whipped his phone out.
“He told me to look up 50 Cent’s Instagram feed. As soon as I saw it I was appalled by the video and that he would do such a thing and post it everyw,” he said.
“I just wanted to say thank you for all the love and support my son Andrew Farrell has gotten over the video that 50 Cent made. We are nothing but proud of Andrew and his choices and ability to just ignore this bully. I am not putting this on social media to bring attention to my family or myself,” she wrote on Facebook.
As a result of the offensive footage, a Cincinnati bar called the Holy Grail is boycotting Effen Vodka, a brand 50 Cent promotes.
