Tekashi69 (real name: Daniel Hernandez) was lucky enough to be released from prison into home confinement thanks to coronavirus. But then the 24-year-old (?!?) alternate-universe troll doll had to move houses because he accidentally leaked his own location, making it easy for the gang he snitched on to track him down. Chet Hanks even dunked on him. And now the organization No Kid Hungry has turned down a donation of $200,000 from Tekashi. HA, this mess can’t even buy some good press.
TMZ says that Tekashi’s YouTube-record-breaking song GOOBA made him around $2 million thanks to all of the merchandise he sold along with it. Well, “sources” say that Tekashi decided to donate 10% of what he earned to charity. What a generous former-gang member-turned-snitch! No Kid Hungry got the payment. But they didn’t hold onto it.
The non-profit gave out a statement thanking Tekashi for the gesture but said “No thank you” to the money. They said they could not take the money due to the “activities” Tekashi has been involved with. Take your pick at what they mean by “activities” since there’s so many to choose from.
