Rapper 50 Cent posted an expletive-filled video to Instagram himself making fun of a disabled Northern Kentucky man at CVG. The hip-hop icon was in town making an appearance at Jungle Jim’s to promote his vodka line.
“Listen, the new generation is crazy,” said the rapper in the Instagram video that’s since been taken down. “Look at him, what kind of s*** you think he took before he got to work today.”
In one of his songs, 50 says he stays “high all the time” and assumed Andrew Ferrell was doing the same thing. The man 50 attacked on social media has been a staff member at the airport for a month as a janitor – his first job ever.
Now Ferrell has been thrown into the spot light just for doing his job. Ferrell suffers from Asperger’s Syndrome and has hearing deficiency and social anxiety.
“I was appauled by it…I was like who is he to judge a book by its cover which is what he did,” Andrew’s stepfather Ken Kramer stated. Both of his parents were upset to see the video.
“Anytime someone says something negative to your children that is something hard to hear,” said Andrews mother Amanda Kramer.
Ferrell said the whole experience was weird. “Why is he doing this,” Ferrell said he was thinking during the ordeal. Ferrell said he had no idea he was following him and making fun of him, but he knows now.
When asked what he thinks of 50 Cent now, he said “a jerk.”
