What a classy guy! Rapper and terrible actor, Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, aka a$$hole, thought it would be funny to tell a Twitter heckler that he looked “autistic” and that he “dont want no special ed kids on my time line follow some body else.” Hahahah! He looks “autistic!” That’s a good one! Get it? That must mean he looks stupid or something! AHAHAHAHAHAHA! What a comedian! I know a bunch of people got all bent out of shape and he quietly deleted those two posts so it’s all good, right?
Here’s the thing, though:
The internet never forgets, you piece of shit.
But hey, it was just a joke, right? He didn’t mean anything by it! Just havin’ some fun!
The language of hate is always just as amusing. I’m sure when the rednecks call 50 Cent “boy” and “nigger” they’re just joshin’ around, too. When people call me a “dirty Jew,” that’s just a little bit of teasing. Gook. Wop. Guinea. Monkey. Fag. Just jokes, people! Don’t be so serious! Just a joke!
Except it’s not.
At least the above groups can defend themselves. Many of those with autism or “special ed kids” can’t. ”You look autistic?” What does that even mean? Did he watch Rainman once? Maybe he heard the word by accident and thought it would make a good insult? Anyone who has spent more than ten seconds with an autistic child (or has one, like me) knows that autistic kids can look just like everyone else. Using their condition as an epitaph is the lowest of the low. I expect that kind of crap from a child who doesn’t know any better. I do not expect that from a public figure with millions of fans. Then again, Mr. Fiddy specializes in “gangsta rap” in which he idolizes violence, misogyny and general stupidity. I don’t care what rationale people use, celebrating the worst aspects of the black community and holding it up as a model is a self defeating prophecy and has done more to reinforce negative black stereotypes than Fox News could ever dream of doing.
I guess Fiddy is nothing more than the trash he sings about. And his idea of an apology?
‘I would @Danicakes23 never talk about kids condition. People say all kinds of crazy things to me on twitter.’
Wow. So sincere. I guess he’s the victim here. For a person that constantly sings about how manly he is, Fiddy doesn’t know the meaning of the word. A real man would realize just how hurtful his words are and apologize. Real men can do that if they’re not too busy pretending that being a mindless thug is a lifestyle. I don’t expect to hear anything useful out of Fiddy anytime soon.
Drop by his FB page and share a photo of someone you know and love with autism. Let Fiddy know what autism REALLY looks like.
