Rapper 50 Cent berates teen with disability in viral video


CINCINNATI, OH (WCMH) —  Rapper 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, posted and later deleted a video he posted to social media over the weekend that showed him berating a worker at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.

Now the teen’s family is demanding an apology from the rapper.

The teen’s father told WLWT, that his son suffers from a disability and has social anxiety.

“It’s just sickening, very hard to watch,” said Kent Farrell, the father of Andrew Farrell, the 19-year-old man seen in the video.

“This new generation is crazy. It’s crazy,” 50 Cent said in a selfie video. The rapper then turns the camera on an airport employee, pushing a cart through the airport terminal. “Look at him. What kind of [expletive] do you think he took before coming to work today? He high as a [expletive] right here in the airport. His pupils dilated and everything… “

Kent Farrell says Andrew is not on drugs.

“To put this out there saying my son is on drugs or whatever, that is part of his social anxiety,” Kent Farrell told WLWT. “He’s not wanting to talk, he’s not wanting to communicate, he’s walking on and he’s doing his job.”

Andrew’s parents say he was proud of getting the janitor job at the airport after he graduated high school.

“He’s very upset,” said Andrew’s mother, Amanda Kramer. “The more I thought about it, the more upset I got, the madder I got. This could hurt him for the future.”

The video has disappeared from 50 Cent’s Twitter page, but Andrew’s parents still think the rapper needs to make a public apology.What others are clicking on:
