Rapper 50 Cent says he's sorry.
He issued an apology Sunday to his nearly seven million Twitter followers for an offensive tweet about autism.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the rap star received a lot of backlash after he told an angry fan not to follow him because he looked autistic and didn't "want no special ed kids" on his timeline.
The apology reportedly came after actress and autism activist Holly Robinson Peete, who has an autistic son, wrote an open letter to the rapper.
