Holly Peete Confronts 50 Cent on Autism Insult
The 21 Jump Street star, whose eldest son Rodney, Jr. suffers from the developmental disorder, was dismayed by the hip-hop mogul's choice of language after reading the Monday night (02Jul12) Twitter exchange, which was prompted when one blogger threatened to shoot 50 Cent if he refused to release his new mixtape, 5 (Murder By Numbers), early.
He hit back, "yeah i just saw your picture fool you look autistic".
The retort sparked a flurry of messages to Peete, a celebrity ambassador for autism awareness, and she has now urged 50 to be more considerate next time he lashes out at critics.
