The comments outraged folks on Twitter and sparked and response from fab chick Holly Robinson, whose son has Autism.  She said, 'When I read (the tweet) it my heart sank. I thought maybe your account had been hacked. No such luck.  '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??'

After the negative responses, 50 was prompted to issue an apology.  He said, 

'I realise my autism comments were insensitive, however it was not my intention to offend anyone and for this I apologise.'

Considering the fact my son

Considering the fact my son is 5 years old and he's autistic I find 50 cents comment very offensive and I can care less if he apoloiges or not. 50 cent is old enough to know what is right and what is wrong. Has he ever heard of that saying "THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK".....I've learned how to do that when I was my sons age and even as a little kid I've never or would I ever make fun of a disabled child or an adult. I don't care if he wasn't brought up that way like I was he is 37 years old and I would expect something like what he said to come out of a childs mouth not his. I used to be a HUGE FAN of his music until this. I broke every CD I had of his and any thing I had that has anything to do with 50 cent.....50 CENT GROW UP ITS ABOUT TIME THAT YOU DO BEFORE YOU PISS OFF ANYMORE OF YOUR FANS!!!!!!! I'm am not a fan fan no more and I will never change my mind about that EVER!!!!!!!!

That Ne-Yo songs makes me

That Ne-Yo songs makes me thing of Terry Crews dancing in "White Chicks"....and 50 Cent has always spoken before he thought about the words.

50 will be 50 and he better be glad Coke bought his vitamin water. Otherwise, he would be broke as hell because he is beyond wack as a rapper. That picture of Jay-Z *pucks* He must have put some serious pipe on Bey

That NeYo song is wack and sounds like all of the other Euro-pop noise these R&B singers are doing. Sounds like a corny Pepsi commercial.

50 cent is UGLY inside and

50 cent is UGLY inside and out! Hes always been an asshole!, and the fact that he used 40 glock as a human shield to start drama with other rappers (basically doing his dirty work) is nothing New,. Now that 40G got his ass whooped by " The Game" 50 says he has "nothing to do with it" and all his G unit artices need to venture off . All he do is start shit and run just like BITCH! As far as the autism joke I'm pretty sure 50 doesn't give a damn he only apologize beause a celebrity caught wind of his bullhit ! HE WILL NEVER CHANGE JUST A WASTE OF SPACE!!!

I was a big 50 cent fan when

I was a big 50 cent fan when he first came out but I stopped paying him any attention after he went in on JaRule and countless other celebs. He's an ignorant arrogant pompous jackass and I cant believe Oprah even gave him the time of day. Somebody please put an apple in this pigs mouth cause clearly the bullet didn't do the trick.

Really 50 Really??! First of

Really 50 Really??! First of all I am highly offended. My son is autistic, and what does being autistic actually look like? Furthermore, 50 probably does not even have a clue to what it means to be "autistic" or better yet know what "autism" means. This is what's wrong with our society to many igrorant people throwing around labels that are uncalled for and disrespectful. #AutismRocks

So glad that Holly put 50

So glad that Holly put 50 Cent in his place. Idiot needs to watch what he says. That was really insensitive on his part. Just plain stupid and disrespectful to kids, parents and families that are affected by Autism.
