50 Cent Removes Tweets about Autism, Satisfies Holly Robinson Peete

Rapper 50 Cent removed offensive tweets about autism from his account after actress Holly Robinson Peete, whose son is autistic, attacked him for using hurtful language.

Peete was upset after 50 insulted a rude Twitter follower by telling him he looked autistic, then saying he didn’t want “special ed kids” on his timelines.

In a note to him, Peete wrote, “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??”

After she asked him to remove the tweets, 50 Cent obliged, deleting them all from his timeline.

Peete responded on Twitter, “Really thankful that @50cent took down those tweets.”
