Foundation rejects Tekashi 69’s $200k donation to feed hungry kids, he reacts
The foundation said it was rejecting the rapper’s donation because his “activities” do not align with their mission.
According to Complex, the spokesperson for the No Kid Hungry Foundation, Laura Washburn, stated:
“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.”
“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 was not pleased that his donation was rejected and he took to Instagram to complain about it.
He wrote: “@nokidhungry rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children. I never seen something so cruel.”
He added in a comment:
“People wonder why black & Hispanic communities never evolve. Taking food out of hungry kids mouth is the true definition of LOW.”
The rejection comes after a woman, who claims she’s Tekashi’s baby mama, called him out after he announced he was donating $200K to feed hungry kids.
The woman alleged that he’s not taking care of his daughter and has never even met her, yet he’s donating to other kids.
Instagram users are blaming the woman after Tekashi’s donation was rejected and she has been forced to lock her Instagram account as a result.
However, some defended her and suggested that the foundation probably rejected the donation because of the criminal activities that led Tekashi to jail.
Tekashi was recently released from prison and is now under house arrest, after cooperating with the Feds and putting away members of the Treyway Gang.
