Rapper 50 Cent has donated USD 100,000 to Autism Speaks as part of his apology to an airport janitor he mocked.
The rapper, 40, poked fun at 19-year-old Andrew Farrell in a social media video, suggesting the teenager was high on drugs when he failed to respond to the “In Da Club” hitmaker while he was at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, reported the Huffington Post.
The young man’s stepfather quickly pointed out the teen was autistic and suffered a hearing impairment, prompting 50 to apologise.
Making the generous donation, the rapper said, “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.”
The news of his big money cheque emerges as 50 Cent continues to work out his bankruptcy troubles, after declaring himself broke in a Connecticut court last summer.
