50 Cent's insults prompt local janitor's family to speak out

Curtis James Jackson III, known as rapper 50 Cent, accused an airport janitor of being on drugs because he wouldn't respond to him in a video posted Sunday on Instagram.

50 Cent appeared Saturday at the Eastgate Jungle Jim's International Market to promote Effen Vodka.

The video, which has since been removed from Jackson's account, shows a man pushing a cart of cleaning supplies through the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. Jackson accuses the man of being high and attempts to get him to respond. The footage has been captured and saved to YouTube. It contains graphic language

Instagram user rusty_stone9 quickly identified the man in the video as Andrew Farrell, a 19-year-old Conner High School graduate.

"I went to school with him," the user wrote. "He has extreme social difficulties just to let you know. He has a hard enough time getting through life without jackasses like you making fun of him. I hope you feel good about yourself. You just lost a huge fan."

She also tagged Farrell in the post, whose most recent Instagram photo has been flooded with support from all over the world garnering comments from users in Canada, Holland, Scotland, the Netherlands and Croatia. Farrell thanked the commenters several times.

"I was just starting work," Farrell said in an interview Monday. "Pushing my cart, minding my own business."

He said the rapper was walking with a group of people when he turned on his cellphone camera and got "all up in my face."

"Why would you attack my kid like that?" Farrell's mother, Amanda Kramer said. "It doesn't say much about his character when he has to attack a kid he doesn't even know."
