Inflammatory lyrics by rappers Drake and J.Cole have caused outrage within the Autism community, initiating an online crusade by parents and supporters for a public apology, and removal of the offending phrase from the song.

Jodeci Freestyle, released on Saturday June 22, and includes the lyrics:

“I’m artistic, you n****s is autistic, retarded.”

News of these lyrics come hot on the heels of fellow rapper, 50 Cent’s alleged retort tweet to a disgruntled fan saying that he ‘looked retarded’ and that ‘special-education’ kids should not be in his Twitter timeline.
