G-Unit leader 50 Cent his publicly apologised for his recent comments made about Autism.
The New York emcee endured a torrid time on the social networking website Twitter after he made some harsh comments about the developmental disability with a number of fans hitting back at him for the insincere messages.
Fiddy hit back at a fan on twitter who threatened to shoot him unless he stepped up the release date of his brand new album. The In Da Club hit maker took it upon himself to reply to the Twitter user and branded him autistic.
“Yeah just saw your picture fool you look autistic…I don’t want no special ed kids on my time line follow some body else.”
The Hollywood Reporter had revealed that a number of parents and advocates of the millions of autistic children in the USA had heard of Fiddy’s Twitter outburst and took it upon themselves to voice their concerns to the star. Actress Holly Robinson Peete who is well known for her character Vanessa on 90′s television show Hanging With Mr Cooper engulfed the response of the millions of people who support autism in an open letter to the rap mogul.
“This is my son Rodney Peete. He has autism. So I guess this is what autistic looks like? He is in special ed. He loves rap music and is a HUGE fan of yours. He’s a tremendous kid. He has to deal with so much trying to fit in. This isn’t helping.”
After receiving this letter and a number of others, Fiddy took it upon himself to do the right thing and take the blame for his actions in addition to a sincere apology to his fan base and the supporters of Autism world wide.
“I realise my autism comments were insensitive, however it was not my intention to offend anyone and for this i apologise.”
50 Cent’s autism comments are not the first time that he has put his foot in it after making comments on Twitter. In March of last year the Queens rapper made some rather insensitive comments regarding the Tsunami that occurred in Japan.
