Tekashi 6ix9ine has become the most popular rapper since his livestream last week where he told his side of the story regarding his arrest and him snitching. In honor of him earning approximately $2 million from the success of his new single and music video “Gooba,” along with merch sales, the controversial rapper announced that he would be donating 10 percent of the proceeds to No Kid Hungry, a non-profit that works to end child hunger, which has become worsened in wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the non-profit turned down his $200,000 donation, saying that the Tekashi’s actions do not align with their mission as a child oriented charity.
“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,” the organization said in a statement. “As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values.”
Of course Tekashi took to Instagram to blast the non-profit and since deleted post, which read “@nokidhungry rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children I never seen something so cruel.
The organization has not responded to the rappers IG post.
