UPDATE: 50 Cent has donated $100,000 to Autism Speaks saying “I want to turn this misunderstanding into an understanding.”
Autism Speaks thanked 50 for his donation in a Facebook post earlier this morning.

50 Cent apparently has very little to do with his time.
While at a Cincinnati airport, 50 Cent spotted an airport worker who he thought was high/drunk while on the job and proceeded to mock the man as he walked through the airport.
Turns out the man, 19 year-old Andrew Farrell, was disabled and 50 Cent has ended up in even hotter water (because harassing someone at work is never okay) in response to his actions.
According to TMZ, the family is considering suing 50 Cent, but will reconsider the lawsuit if he apologizes to Farrell face-to-face.
Well, update guys, 50 cent has apologized since the posting of the video above. He said in a statement to TMZ:
“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.”
We hope he included a bottle of Effin’ Vodka with his apology.
