5ocents comments on Autism..

 After reading 50 cents comments on Twitter, calling  a child "Autistic looking" and not wanting no special needs kid following him" I decided to tweet him back with a photo of my son looking adorable, saying "this is what autism looks like in our house, pretty darn cute' An irish paper ran a story on us, and I am pleased its out there that DJ is Autistic because I am not ashamed of it, it doesn't change him as a person or as my son. In fact a lot of the cute Dylanisms, as well call it, is what makes us just adore him even more. We deal with certain situations a little differently but apart from that he is a normal 2 year old.
 After the story ran in Ireland and after the uproar about his comments, Car Phone warehouse cancelled his appearance to promote his new set of headphones.  I was so proud of them for taking the stand to cancel that gig and for standing up for all the autism kids out there.
