50 Cent is going above and beyond the call to follow through on a request from the parents of a teen he mocked at Cincinnati’s airport.
The rapper whose real name is Curtis Jackson, made a huge donation to the non-profit charity Autism Speaks.
It’s a part of his apology to Andrew Farrell, a 19-year-old airport worker who Jackson recorded as he criticized him for “obviously being on drugs”. Only Farrell was not on drugs, he has a social anxiety disorder and is disabled.
Jackson apologized to Farrell’s parents after Fiddy’s video rant went viral on social media.
Farrell’s family asked him to make a $10,000 donation to Autism Speaks.
Jackson instead increased the donation to $100,000.
