Earlier this afternoon, Tekashi 6ix9ine announced that he would be donating $200,000 to the No Kid Hungry foundation in order to help children who rely on food from school during this pandemic. He also emphasized that influencers should be using their blessings to help others like this as well.
It appears that No Kid Hungry wants no parts of 6ix9ine or his money as they have denied the donation, according to TMZ.
“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.”
6ix9ine wasn’t pleased at all at the denial as he labeled this as cruel and that No Kid Hungry is taking food out of children’s mouths. One reason why this might’ve happened is his criminal record which includes relations with a minor. It’ll be interesting to see if other charitable organizations accept his funds during these times of the Rona. In the meantime, his “GOOBA” single has been doing crazy numbers as the music video for it has also accumulated over 121 million views.
