50 Cent really, really wanted to ruin this airport janitor's day for some reason—and no one seems to know why. In what seems to be a totally unprovoked schoolyard bully move, the rapper followed the janitor around the airport while filming him and accusing him of being high. The video was originally uploaded to 50 Cent's Instagram with the caption, “The walking Dead, SMH LMAO I mean How high are trying to get Damn!!!” He has since deleted the video. 

Maybe 50 Cent is just trying to make a new PSA about the danger of drugs? Oh, but he has lyrics like, "I'm not that genie in a bottle, I'm in a bag. Take one hit and slide off to the Land of H man." So that somehow seems doubtful.

In the video, 50 can be heard saying, "He high as a motherfucker right here in the airport. Pupils dilated everything, looking like a—the new generation is fucking crazy!"

Wait. The new generation is crazy? Aren't you the hard rapper from the streets who has seen it all and was allegedly shot nine times? That sounds a lot crazier than some dude who may or may not have showed up to work high. 

According to KHOU News, at least one person stepped forward on Instagram and said that they knew the janitor, and that he suffers from social disabilities. An Instagram user (who has deleted their account since writing the comment) said:

I went to school with him. His name is ..... He has extreme social disabilities 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. 50 needs to apologize.

When the video was posted on Reddit under a thread titled "50 cent is an asshole," people were pretty unimpressed with the rapper. 

User Fsphoenix put it in simple terms: 

And if the poor kid said a word back, he'd probably lose his job for upsetting such a fine, upstanding customer.

Seriously, what an absolute asshole. 50 outright squanders and pisses away more than this guy will see in his entire lifetime of working, and has the balls to try and talk about "this new generation"?

Argoshua tried to see the situation from the employee's perspective:

Minimum wage job, shitty conditions, possibly shitty employer and immediate boss. Comes to work exhausted and possibly sick, gets harrassed by some rich hypocritical cock who doesnt pay his own taxes yet if he did the same.... and all he probably wants to do is go home and sleep it off.

Emineminist was even more concise:

 He doesn't look high. The guy just looks like he pulled a double at a shitty airport job where he has to deal with assholes like 50 cent.

And CyndromeLOL understands that no one wants to interact with 50 Cent under any circumstances:

I don't even know why people think he's high, or saying he might have mental disabilities. I look like this on a shitty day of work, and I would probably do the same and just try to ignore a celebrity shoving their phone into my face recording me.

Or maybe the attack's just because 50 is jealous that this guy has a job, and is not completely bankrupt? Just a theory.
