Mumble rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine donated $200, 000 to the “No Kid Hungry” charity but it was declined because of his problematic past and sinister connections.
6ix9ine thought it would be good for his tarnished image to donate some money to charity but ultimately the charity rejected his money because they do not want to be associated with him.
Daniel Hernandez, 24, a mumble rapper more famously known by his stage name Tekashi 6ix9ine, was recently released early from prison for being convicted of robbery, racketeering and firearms charges.
His trial revealed that the young musician had ties with a dangerous American street gang that call themselves Nine Trey Gangters or “Bloods“. 6ix9ine was offered a shorter sentence if he revealed further information on the gang and their illegal activities, to which the rapper obliged.
Tekashi 6ix9ine was released early last month from prison due to a deadly virus pandemic and is now trying to ‘right his wrongs’ by doing charitable work. Sadly, for the rapper, his association to gangs and previous charges may have caused irreparable damage.
Charity “No Kid Hungry” rejects $200k donation from Tekashi 6ix9ine because his a thug like behaviour.
According to TMZ, the rapper had decided to give 10% of the earnings from his “GOOBA” single which amounts to USD$200,000 to an organisation called No Kid Hungry. The official website states that charities main goal is, “ending childhood hunger”. It accomplishes this by helping families who are struggling to feed their children.
Tekashi boasted about his donation posing with stacks of cash on Instagram and writing: “During this pandemic I understand we have nurses and frontline Hero’s who risk there life daily to save others. But NEVER forget the children & families who depend on OUR PUBLIC schools for daily meals and nutritions to keep our future leaders growing to their best potential,” 6ix9ine wrote in an Instagram post. “To every influencer out there REMEMBER if you are blessed GOD gave you that blessing not just for YOU but also TO HELP OTHERS 🙌🏼 GOD FIRST.”
Shortly after 6ix9ine announced that he would be making the USD$200,000 donation the charity revealed that, although they were grateful, they would not be accepting his money. 6ix9ine has since deleted his Instagram post.
In a statement to Complex, Laura Washburn, the director of strategic communications for the charity, said: “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.”
She added, “As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values.”
Tekashi 6ix9ine acts like a thug and encourages fans to spam Instagram after charity rejects his donation.
Convicted felon, 6ix9ine, lashed back at the charity calling them ‘cruel’ on Instagram. “@nokidhungry rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children I never seen something so cruel,” the disgruntled rapper wrote.
The mumble rapper than encouraged his fans to spam the charity’s official Instagram page with the letter L, which means “losers.”
