WATCH: 50 Cent Bullies Autistic Teen, Could Cost Him $1 Million

Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, decided to make fun of a Cincinnati airport worker named Andrew by taping him on camera and describing how high he looked.

"Look at him? What kind of S%^& do you think this guy took before he came to work today? What's your name? He is as high as a ****, pupils dilated and everything..."


What 50 Cent didn't take the time to notice is that the teen his was making fun of has a hearing impairment and autism.

Don't worry Andrew, the internet has your back. 50 Cent has been slammed with negative comments after the video went viral and people are demanding that he apologize.

Andrew's mother says, "It's heartbreaking. He was just doing his job and I think he (50 Cent) was mad and offended that someone didn't flock to him."

According to Andrew's stepfather, the family has a lawyer and may sue him for $1 million. He says they'd be willing to forget the whole thing, if 50 Cent donates $1 million to Andrew's GoFundMe page and makes a face-to-face apology.

*The video has graphic language but you can see it below. As of this posting 50 Cent has not commented on the backlash.

The Cast Of Hamilton Should Just Sit On The Stage At The Tony Awards

The Cast of "Hamilton"

History is happening for Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip hop opera about Alexander Hamilton.

The show was nominated for a whopping 16 Tony Awards on Tuesday, breaking the record for most nominations ever. So basically the cast will be sitting ON the stage during the Tony Awards?

Broadway junkies might know this but here's a factoid for the rest of us. Before Hamilton, the record was shared between The Producers and Billy Elliot, with 15 noms each.

Gwen Stefani Wants A Breakup (But Not With Blake)

Gwen Stefani
According to reports, Gwen Stefani may be ready to break up with NBC's The Voice. But it has nothing to do with Blake Shelton.

It started when producers replaced Gwen by bringing back Christina Aguilera. Then they offered to keep Gwen on as a mentor on Team Blake. They also said she'd be considered to replace Christina when she leaves the show forever next season. Did you follow all that?

Here's where the problem got bad - They never even talked to Gwen about replacing Christina, and meanwhile Miley Cyrus announced she was replacing Christina next season.

The rumor is Gwen will quit - We'll see.

J.K. Rowling Sorry She Killed Off This Harry Potter Character

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling
Apparently this week is the fictional annivesrary of the "Battle of Hogwarts" in the Harry Potter books. As she usually does author J.K. Rowling has taken this opportunity to mourn the death of a character.

She apologized for killing off Remus Lupin.

I read and enjoyed all the books, but I never had a connection to them where I mourned fictional deaths. No judgement though! Okay, well, a little judgement.

Alex Rodriguez Does Creepiest Thing In Baseball History

Alex Rodriguez
Let me clarify - This might be the creepiest thing in baseball history done ON the field. I'm sure much worse has been done in locker rooms, on road trips, etc.

It was raining in Monday night's game, so Yankees star Alex Rodriguez dried off his bat in the creepiest way possible:

Go ahead and try and unsee that!

Kate Upton Got Secretly Engaged

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton
As I heard this news I sighed as though I had a chance with Kate Upton. Ha!

Model Kate Upton and Detroit Tiger Justin Verlander revealed their engagement Monday. He actually proposed before the MLB season started.

She's only 23, he's 10 years older, plus they're both rich and famous, so the celebrity odds of marriage are against them. They do seem to really love each other though.

Who Wore It WORST? Must-See Met Gala Fashion

Katy Perry
Full disclosure: I'm not a fashion person. I'm just a person who knows what I like and don't like, so your opinions may be very different. But apparently the Met Gala is where celebrities try to out-weird each other.

Here's Rita Ora looking like a bird of some sort:


Taylor Swift:


I think Solange is dressed as a gift in a gift bag, we just can't see the bag. Doesn't this look like tissue paper sticking out of a gift?


Here's Lady Gaga, but I'm pretty sure she wears this every Monday night:


There was Katy Perry and her bleached eyebrows:


However the coolest dress of the night had to be on Claire Danes. It looked like a princess gown, then it freakin' lit up!

Celestial grandeur. Illuminating ballgown. Guess who? #metgala #zacposen #glamour

So Disney, Will Elsa Have A Girlfriend?

Disney purists are not to happy about the #GiveElsaAGirlfriend hashtag, as Disney has never had a gay princess character. But the LGBTQ community is rallying around the idea that Elsa, from the Oscar award winning movie Frozen, needs a love interest too. Supporters of #GiveElsaAGirlfriend believe giving Elsa another princess to love would set a good example of love, acceptance and tolerence.

Disney is currently making more Frozen movies and Elsa's romantic interests are a much talked about storyline.

The idea has even inspired some fan art:



No word yet on what Disney thinks of #GiveElsaAGirlfriend.

The (Good) Reason Amy Schumer Won't Take Photos With Fans

Celebrities get asked for pictures all the time. After a while it probably gets tiresome. Comedian Amy Schumer told her fans on Saturday, "I will not take picture[s] with people anymore."

She says it all started when a dude in Greenville, South Carolina, ran up to her and shoved a camera in her face and was threatening. She reveals she told him to stop and then he replied, "No it's America and we paid for you!"

Amy goes on to describe the scene, "This was in front of his daughter. I was saying stop and no. Great message to your kid," she writes.

The guy (Leslie Brewer) says he wasn't threatening but he did post a video on Instagram captioned with, "Amy schumer just got mad at me and cussed me out lmao!!! Awesome." Amy got some backlash from some other fans for not wanting to take photos anymore. Here's her response:


She should thank the fans when possible as well as take photos, but she should never feel threatened. And while America loves her, we do not own her.

Beyonce's 5 Previous Studio Albums All Went #1, But Did 'Lemonade?'

Beyonce
No pressure Beyonce. Her five previous studio albums have all hit #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart, but Lemonade was released a little differently. It was a visual album shown on HBO. And the audio version was only released via the Tidal streaming service at first. So did that prevent her from debuting at #1? Of course not, it's Beyonce!

Queen Bey got her 6th #1 album, with 653,000 equivalent album units in its first week. "Equivalent album units" factors in streaming as well.
