“NOT ON OUR WATCH!” –Let Autism-bashers and those who bully and ridicule people with Autism emphatically and boldly know: “we will advocate, educate and support, care for and love people with Autism. “Life on the Autism Spectrum can be Enjoyable.” @EnjoyHi5Autism ;
By now I would imagine that most of you are familiar with the recent story about 50 Cent’s egregious misstep on Twitter and the autism community’s swift response.
For those not wholly
obsessed with immersed in our world, however, I offer you the thirty-second sound bite version.
@yung_raditz, one of 50 Cents’s nearly seven million – yes, MILLION – followers, tweeted the following to him ..
@50cent Release the album or get shot again
Mr .. um .. Cent responded by retweeting @yung_raditz’s tweet, but not without adding the following ‘jibe’ ..
‘yeah just saw your picture fool you look autistic’
In case that weren’t enough, he then followed up with a second tweet to @yung_raditz …
‘I don’t want no special ed kids on my time line follow some body else’
And so it began.
