No Kid Hungry Declines $200,000 Donation from Tekashi 6ix 9ine

Tekashi 6ix 9nine, the rapper and ex-member of New York’s Nine Trey Bloods gang, is having trouble doing good in the world. Since his early release from prison, he’s broken Instagram Live records, dropped a new song, and attempted to donate to a charity. Emphasis on “attempted.”

The “Gooba” vocalist, born Daniel Hernandez, tried to give the nonprofit organization No Kid Hungry a $200,000 donation, but the group declined his money.

A spokeswoman said: “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.”

Tekashi immediately hit back with a since-deleted Instagram post, captioned, “@nokidhungry rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children i never seen something so cruel [sic].”

Soon after, 6ix 9ine had moved on to other pursuits, trolling the NYPD on Instagram with a new post:

So it doesn’t look like Tekashi’s $200k donation will be going to anyone.

What do you think about this situation? Should No Kid Hungry take the money, no matter who gave it? Should Tekashi give the cash to a different group? Hit us up on the socials and let’s talk about it! @HOThits1005 and @WatersOnAir
