If your donations are being declined during this tragic pandemic, it should let you know how strongly they feel about his sticky situation, and that should speak for itself!
To say the least Tekashi 6ix9ine is having a very interesting week so far. From dropping his new video and song “GOOBA” to making his first Instagram Live appearance since prison release. With a new $10 million dollar deal in the bank it’s safe to say he’s back on his trolling vibes. Since being out his address was leaked online by one of his clout chasing fans, which caused him to to relocate for his safety.
Kicking off this week, Tekashi announced he was donating $200,000 to No Kid Hungry. His donation isn’t a total surprise. Since becoming famous, he’s donated a lot of money to various organizations quietly and always seems to be a phone call away for the Make A Wish Foundation requests.
Even while on trial, almost every organization wrote a letter on his behalf to the judge. Now that he’s out of lock-up, it seems the perfect move that he posted his contributions made to ‘No Kid Hungry’ which made the non profit do a full PR move declining his $200k donation.
And according to reports from Complex confirm they had a very good reason why they did not take his money.
Director of Strategic Communications Laura Washburn via Complex:
“We are grateful for Mr. Hernandez’s generous offer to donate to No Kid Hungry but we have informed his representatives that we have declined this donation,” Washburn said. “As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values.”
In case you forgot….
Back in 2015 6ix9ine was found guilty in a case stemming from him posting a video of a then-13-year-old girl engaging in a sexual act online. He was sentenced to 1,000 hours of community service and four years probation back in October of this year, a little before his 22nd birthday.
What’s your 2 cents?!
