Post Malone Wishes Autistic Fan Happy 21st Birthday In Sweet Video

Post Malone made a fan's day after going over to wish him a happy birthday while out at a restaurant.

Andrew Schumacher, who has autism, was out with his family at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills to celebrate his 21st birthday on 11 March.

And while they say you should never meet your heroes, that certainly wasn't the case for Andrew, who was over the moon when he bumped into the rapper.

His mum, Nicole, then tells the singer he is celebrating his 21st and had just enjoyed 'his first beer tonight'.

"Ya?" asks Post. "What kind of beer you get? That’s a tough choice. Not for me but… "

Nicole then says: "He has autism and knows all of your songs", to which the 'Better Now' singer says: "Dude, thank you for listening. That’s so sweet and nice to meet you."

"Have fun dude, but not too much fun", he added.

Nicole revealed to FOX 11 later that she had asked her son if he knew who Post was when he saw him walking into the restaurant.

Andrew replied, 'Austin', which is the singer's real name.

"I wasn't sure if that was his real name until he walked over to our table to introduce himself," the mum recalled.
