50 Cent Mocks A Disabled Janitor, And The Internet Explodes
The rapper accused a disabled employee of being high at work.
What are you doing Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson??? While traveling, the rapper went on a rant about the young, "new generation," while following a man he accused of being high off drugs. And he did all of this while recording it on camera for Instagram. Needless to say, it didn't end well for him.
"Listen, the new generation is crazy. They're crazy. What's your name?" he asked the airport employee who answered with a nervous shake of the head. "Look at him. Look at this. What kind of sh*t you think he took before he got to work today?" he continued. "He high as a motherf*cker right here in the airport. Pupils dilated and everything. The new generation is f*cking crazy!"
50 uploaded the video to Instagram with the caption, "The walking Dead, SMH LMAO I mean How high are trying to get Damn!!!" Watch the video below.
And the backlash (and revelation) from commenters struck like a thunderstorm, causing 50 Cent to take the video down. It turns out that the airport employee is actually autistic and suffers from mild social anxiety. The parents of the janitor, Andrew Farrell, reportedly told journalists that it was a "slap in the face." His mother Amanda is calling for a public apology and his father Ken said, "It hurts to watch that, it's painful."
The parents are speculating that 50 Cent was upset that their son didn't treat him like a celebity, and I'm suspecting that there's a lawsuit soon to come. Oh, 50. When will it end?
