Rapper Tekashi 69’s donation of $200,000 to a foundation, No Kid Hungry has been rejected, possibly due to the rapper’s criminal past.
According to @complex, the spokesperson for the 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,” Washburn said. “As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values.”
Reports also have it that his alleged baby mama, Layna is accusing him of breaking his promise to support her and her child after he was released from prison.
Layna disclosed that she communicated with Tekashi while he was in prison. (He was recently released early due to COVID-19 concerns related to his asthma.) In a text allegedly sent by the rapper, he told Layna she would be “good” when he got out of prison, if she kept quiet about them.
She says she hasn’t heard from Tekashi since he was released, and commented on social media about his donation, saying, “God gave you two daughters to feed, God wants you to put them first.”
