While 50 Cent wasÂ at the Cincinatti/Northern Kentucky Airport, he saw a janitorÂ pushing his bucket andÂ assumedÂ the janitorÂ was high. He turned on his cell phone and started recording him saying the man wasÂ â€œhigh as a motherfâ€”-r.â€ He asked him..
â€œWhatâ€™s your name?What did you take before coming to work? Then he turned the video on himself and said..â€ â€œThe New generation is crazy,they crazyâ€
The worker ignored him and kept pushing his buckets. 50 Cent put the video on his IG page insisting theÂ man was high.
However, people who knew the man identified him as 19 year old Andrew Farrell who suffered from Autism and social anxiety.
When 50 Cent realized his mistake, he deleted the video from his Instagram account after an online backlash.
The parents of the worker, Andrew Farrell, said he has mild autism and deals with social anxiety.
His step Father Ken Farrell said seeing the footage felt like a â€œslap in the faceâ€. He said heâ€™d take 50 Cents to courtÂ unless heÂ donates $1 million to a GoFundMe as well as issue a public apology to Andrew.
â€œPersonally, I think the guy was mad. Andrew didnâ€™t know who he was right away and he ignored him and he did his job and went about his business. â€œI think he was mad and offended that someone didnâ€™t flock to him.â€
50 Cent has since issued an apology to the young man through Page Six. he said:
â€œWhile the incident at the airport resulted from an unfortunate misunderstanding, I am truly sorry for offending the young man.â€ â€œIt 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.â€
