Three 6 Mafia’s Juicy J is keeping it 100. The hip-hop veteran has come forward to share his thoughts about celebrities like Oprah Winfrey dedicating millions to coronavirus relief funds.
Juicy went to his social media pages this week to share his frustrations. J singled out Winfrey for donating $10 million to a COVID-19 aid fund.
“I don’t get it, where is this money going? Who’s pockets? People are losing jobs by the millions why don’t they give the money to them and the homeless. SMH.” -Juicy J’s Instagram
Earlier in the week, Oprah’s $10 million donation made major headlines. The power move also included a new venture to help get food to Americans during the coronavirus crisis.
Part of the money will go towards the new initiative called America’s Food Fund, launched in conjunction with Apple Inc, the Ford Foundation, Laurene Powell Jobs and actor Leonardo DiCaprio. (Reuters)
Wait, There’s More
Winfrey went to her social media pages to break the news. A key focus in the relief funds include places she grew up. Oprah was born in Mississippi and raised in Milwaukee and Tennessee.
“I am donating $10 million overall to help Americans during this pandemic in cities across the country and in areas where I grew up. For more on this Fund and how everyone can be of service, watch this free AppleTV+ conversation here: http://Apple.co/oprahtalks” -Oprah Winfrey’s Twitter
“I believe that America’s Food Fund will be a powerful way to make a difference for our neighbors in need and am committing $1 million to this fund to support those facing food insecurity.”
Before You To
This week, Atlanta rapper Jeezy shared his thoughts about the coronavirus. During the Q&A, Jeezy also discussed President Donald Trump making the COVID-19 pandemic more about himself than the country.
“For me, I’ve seen those type of people in my life and Trump, he’s one of a kind because it takes a different type of leader to make things about him. I just feel a lot of times you see his ego. Right now, you know, it’s about the people. To me, you talking about ‘Make America Great.’ We gon’ make America greater than it’s ever been with or without him. He gotta understand that. We are the people. You are one person and we get it. But this is not about you right now. We all in this together. You know, all of us. So, we have to make this about us, not about you.” (MSNBC)
“Integrity is the most valuable and respected quality of a leader. You can have a Billon dollars and can’t buy that. You can’t lead us, if your ego is leading you. Ps: We The People. One time for @arimelberMSNBC Thanks for having me. #KeepGoing‼️ @thebeatwithari” -Jeezy’s Instagram
