50 Cent certainly feels bad for making fun a teenager with autism on social media.
How do we know this? Well, because the Candy Shop rapper just threw down a sizable chunk of change to Autism Speaks because of the unfortunate incident.
As you may recall, Fiddy was facing a potential lawsuit after he accused Andrew Farrell of being high at work in a Twitter video, when the youngster actually suffered both autism and Asperger’s syndrome. Initially, the family was seeking to get $1 million for the 19 year old’s GoFundMe page but then lessened their request by asking the A-lister to give $10,000 to the autism advocacy group.
However, the entrepreneur not only apologized to the family, but he also gave $100,000 to the family’s charity of choice. On his generous donation, 50 explained:
“I want to turn this misunderstanding into an understanding. There are people that are ignored, mistreated and neglected with disabilities that need our support… 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.”
Well done! Still, we’re hoping that the check clears since the controversial celeb isn’t necessarily the best at managing his money.
WE TEASE… sort of!
