While recording the young man on his phone, 50 Cent had asked him:

"What's your name? What did you take before coming to work?"

Turning the video on himself, the rapper had added:

"The New generation is crazy, they crazy"

50 Cent had been dragged on social media after he had shared the video which he finally pulled down, and has now issued a formal written apology to Austin and his family.

Austin's family has also confirmed that they have received the letter and forgiven the rapper, while adding that he had been made to make donations to a charity set up for autistic people called, 'Autism Speaks'.
