50 Cent Makes Rude Autism Comment
Holly Robinson Peete has written an open letter to 50 Cent -- who made a joke about autism on Twitter earlier this week. A follower tweeted to the rapper, "Release the album or get shot again." 50 replied, "yeah just saw your picture fool you look autistic. i don't want no special ed kids on my time line follow some body else."
Holly -- whose has an autistic son, wrote to 50 on her site Hollyrod.org, "Since last night my twitter timeline is flooded with tweets and retweets about a response you posted to someone who insulted you. When I read it my heart sank. I thought maybe your account had been hacked. No such luck. Granted, his comment was completely out of line but your retort: 'i just saw your picture fool you look autistic"- was so so disappointing. I mean, that's your comeback?? And you didn't stop there. You went on to joke about not wanting 'special ed kids' on your timeline. Seriously, THIS is how you use your platform of 8 million plus followers??"
