Tekashi 6ix9ine just got his first taste of ‘Your money is no good here’ — after the charity, he decided to donate too, rejected his money and told him to take it elsewhere.
In a shocking turn of events, representatives from ‘No Kid Hungry Foundation’ have decided to not except Tekashi 69’s huge donation of $200,000 because it seems they don’t want to be associated with him.
A spokesperson for the charity tells The Blast, “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.”
But, there’s more…
They continued, “As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values.”
The organization was not any clearer about what types of ‘activities’ that they are offended by, enough to reject a donation.
It should be noted, Tekashi 69 was a member of a violent street gang before snitching on his fellow associates. Plus, during the trial of one of the members, Tekashi admitted to several violent acts, including ordering other members to harm other rappers.
Interestingly, the organization didn’t point to any specific issue, but obviously they fell strongly enough about the situation to reject such a large sum of money.
We know what some people are thinking, and we don’t believe this charity cares whether he is a snitch or not. We understand many in the hip-hop community are upset by that action, but we are guessing it’s the violence they have an issue with here.
Also, it’s important to point out, Tekashi was also involved in a very high profile case that centered around sexual crimes involving a minor.
The rainbow rapper addressed the charity’s rejection of his money, saying, “rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children I never seen something so cruel.”
As we previously reported, Tekashi made the announcement on Instagram that he was donating $200,000 to the ‘No Kids Hungry’ Foundation to help cover school meals that have been cut due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
“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,” he wrote on IG.
He continued, “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.”
No word yet, on where Tekahi’s money may be re-directed after the charity rejected his donation.
