50 Cent reportedly donated $100,000 to Autism Speaks after publicly making fun of a teen that has Autism.

If you've been keeping up with the news on the site, you're probably aware that 50 Cent found himself in hot water after he unabashedly made fun of a teenager who suffered from a disability, and shared it with his 8 million twitter followers.

After it was revealed the teenager in question, Andrew Farrell, suffers from Aspergers, a mild form of autism, backlash ensued. Since then, Andrew's step-father has spoken out against 50 Cent, and asked that the rapper apologize and donate $10,000 to an autism advocacy group called Autism Speaks. The rapper did issue an apology, and now there is a report saying that he's also donated to Autism Speaks-- going above and beyond the $10k.

TMZ reports that 50 donated $100,000 to Autism Speaks in the wake of this controversy-- no word on how this affects his bankruptcy situation. This also comes on the heels of news earlier today that Martin Shkreli donated $10,000 to group as a response to the incident.
