Fif has eaten some humble pie recently.
The G-Unit head honcho caused some offense last week, when he posted comments on the social networking site, Twitter, relating to people with Autism.
Now, 50 has posted a public apology to his 6.8 million fans, in an attempt to make amends.
"I realize my autism comments were insensitive, however it was not my intention to offend anyone and for this I apologize," he tweeted on Sunday (July 8).
50 Cent responded to an abusive Twitter follower on Monday (July 2) by telling him that he looked autistic.
Actress, Holly Robinson Peete, was amongst those who responded angrily to 50’s misjudged comments. Her eldest son, Rodney Jr., suffers from autism, and she wrote an open letter of criticism to 50 Cent, pointing out how hurtful his comments were.
"When I read it [his tweets] 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 (education) kids' on your timeline. Seriously, This is how you use your platform of 8 million plus followers??"
