50 Cent Facing Lawsuit For Mocking Autistic Teenager | Music News
50 Cent might be heading back to court, as the rapper reportedly faces a lawsuit after mocking a 19-year-old man, named Andrew Farrell, who suffers from Asperger syndrome. Farrell, a janitor at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, was filmed by 50 in a social media video. In it, he claimed that the teen was inebriated while working.
Cent says in the clip, “The new generation is crazy. Look at him. What kind of sh*t you think he took before he got to work today? He high as a motherf**ker, right here in the airport. Pupils dilated and everything…The new generation is fu**in’ crazy”.
Farrell’s stepfather, Ken Kramer, said that the teenager, who simply shook his head in the video, doesn’t smoke or drink and that he suffers from severe social anxiety. He also reportedly did not recognize the platinum rapper.
The family may sue, though they are currently deterred by potential lawyer fees. They are also hoping for an apology and a $1 million donation from 50 to Andrew’s GoFundMe page. Meanwhile, 50 Cent has been involved in a host of legal quarrels in recent years, including his ongoing bankruptcy case.
