50 Cent Donates $100K To Charity After Being A Dick To Bloke With Autism

Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson got into trouble recently when he filmed a video of a 19-year-old airport employee called Andrew Farrell, and posted it to his Instagram laughing that the bloke was ‘high as a motherfucker’. 

He followed Farrell around at his place of employment, and you could see Farrell was visibly uncomfortable and was having difficulty communicating with and responding to the rapper. And while Fiddy thought he was high, Farrell actually has a form of autism, as well as Asperger’s Syndrome and severe hearing difficulties. 
Understandably, Farrell and his family were upset and distressed by what had happened, and called on the rapper to donate US $10,000 to a charity they hold dear, Autism Speaks
Ol’ mate Curtis clearly feels exceptionally terrible about his stupid decision, because he’s donated ten times that, as well as making a public apology
“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 apologised personally to him and his family.”
He also said in a blog post that he wants “to turn this misunderstanding into an understanding”.
“There are people that are ignored, mistreated and neglected with disabilities that need our support. Today, I have made a donation of $100,000 to this worthy cause through Autism Speaks.”
Now, it’s only been within the last 12 months that Jackson has filed for bankruptcy and has been exceedingly vocal about being broke, but hey. At least his newfound ca$$$h is going to a good cause.
