50 Cent found himself in hot water this week after a video of him mocking a 19-year-old man named Andrew Ferrell, who has autism, was posted on his social media accounts account.
The rapper, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, has since deleted the video and apologised to Farrell and his family for his terrible behavior. He then took an extra step in trying to make things right.
According to TMZ, 50 Cent donated $100,000 to Autism Speaks, an autism advocacy group.
“I want to turn this misunderstanding into an understanding. There are people that are ignored, mistreated and neglected with disabilities that need our support,” Jackson said in a statement sent to The Huffington Post via email. “I am calling on my fellow musicians, actors, entertainers and all others who may not have fully considered this cause to join together to help in any way they can.”
Following the incident, which took place at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, Farrell and his family reportedly asked Jackson to donate $10,000 to the autism organization. Of course, the fact that he donated $90,000 more than asked doesn’t excuse his behavior at all, but we’ll give him credit for trying.
