50 Cent Apologizes for Mocking Autistic Teen Janitor (VIDEOS)

Earlier this week, a video 50 Cent posted to Twitter went viral.

Why? The video (below) shows Fiddy accosting a Kentucky International Airport employee who he accuses of being high.

You can see where this is going.

It later came to light that the airport janitor was 19-year-old Andrew Farell, a young man with Asperger’s syndrome, a high-functioning form of ASD (autism spectrum disorder) and a social anxiety disorder.

His understandably upset family has since received an apology and the bankrupt rapper also put out a public statement which reads:

While the incident at the airport resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding, I am truly sorry for offending the young man. It was certainly not my intent to insult him or the disability community, which is a source of great strength in America. I have apologized personally to him and his family.
