Tekasi 6ix9ine may have been released from prison unexpectedly due to fear of contracting COVID-19, but that certainly doesn’t mean his record in the court of pubic opinion has been tossed.
Proof of this comes as the 24-year-old (born Daniel Hernandez) – currently enjoying the massive success of his comeback single, ‘GOOBA’ (click here to watch its music video) – recently made a handsome donation of $200,000 to the No Kid Hungry Foundation, a nonprofit organization with the mission of “ending childhood hunger.”
Their response? A quick “no thank you,” prompting 6ix9ine to take to social media to respond.
After NKH 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. 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 ‘activities’ referred to in the post are likely his multiple run-ins with the law over the last 5 years regarding charges of sexual misconduct and exploitation of children. In 2018, he pleaded guilty after online videos surfaced of him sexually engaging with an underage girl – specifically he stood behind her “making a thrusting motion with his pelvis and smacking her on the buttocks,” according to a complaint filed with the criminal court of NY. At the time of the video’s recording, Hernandez was 18 years old. The victim was 13.
