Last night, this interview came up on my Facebook feed and I just have to share it with you all. Carly Fleischmann is a non-verbal, autistic woman who’s dream is to have her own talk show and her dream has become a reality!
Her very first interview on her new show, Speechless With Carly Fleischmann, was with the one and only Channing Tatum, who himself has ADHD and Dyslexia. I busted out laughing multiple times as she grilled Channing about his marriage, parenting, childhood and more, especially when she started off her interview asking him, “Would you date a 21-year-old person with autism?”
Carly is a remarkable young lady who has a new fan and YouTube follower! Check out her YouTube page and I can’t wait to see who she interviews next! You can also visit her website, Carly’s Voice.
I was totally appalled to hear about 50 Cent’s online rant he posted about a developmentally disabled gentleman named Andrew who works at Cincinnati International Airport. Andrew has Asperger’s, a hearing deficiency, and social anxiety and this was his first month on the job and his very first job.
50-Cent videoed Andrew walking through the terminal pushing his cleaning cart, not making eye contact with him, and 50 accusing him of being “high on the job” and having dilated eyes and using very harsh language towards him. I’m not going to post the video directly on my blog, but if you wish to watch it, you can see it here on Fox 19, a Cincinnati new station’s website.
Being an Ohio girl and having flown from Cincinnati many times, I’m proud of the airport for hiring Andrew and giving him a chance. And also kudos to all the Cincinnati businesses and restaurants now boycotting 50 Cent’s new vodka line. I hope businesses everywhere will follow in the footsteps of Cincinnati, boycotting 50 Cent and supporting Andrew.
Shame on you 50-Cent, I’m sure your momma is so proud of you….
