EFFEN Vodka Is Not Happy With 50 Cent After He Mocks Disabled Teen

By HHL Editors

It's been a tough year for 50 Cent on the financial front. But he still has EFFEN Vodka, which he relentlessly promotes on his IG page.

But something else he did on Instagram -- mocking an autistic janitor working in a Cincinnati airport for being high -- has the booze brand very upset.

"EFFEN is a brand that considers social responsibility the highest of priorities, and 50 Cent’s recent actions are in no way representative of EFFEN® Vodka or our brand values," EFFEN said in a statement. "We are taking this situation extremely seriously and have communicated our profound disappointment to 50 Cent directly.”
Some liquor stores and bars in the Cincinnati area have banned EFFEN in response to 50's boorish behavior, and liquor stores in Ohio and New Jersey have now cancelled appearances Fif was scheduled to make on behalf of EFFEN.

Update: TMZ says 50 just donated 100K to an autism advocacy group.
