It’s a week now that the US is witnessing protests that followed George Floyd’s shocking killing. There have been many arrests too. A few celebs from the fraternity have also come ahead to bail them out. It is now rap sensation Drake, who has made a massive donation to The National Bail Out organisation to bail out the protestors, and below are the details.
Drake took to Instagram stories to share a picture of the receipt of his contribution. He donated a sum of $100,000 to The National Bail Out. The rapper did the needful after his friend and songwriter Mustafa the Poet tagged him to take the initiative forward.
Mustafa shared his receipt of $400 and tagged Drake and his friend The Weeknd. He urged both of them to come ahead and contribute. He wrote, “My Toronto Kings, Swipe up and match my donation but add 3 zeros! Let’s help reunite black families.” Following it, Drake reposted his story and wrote, “Say less brother.”
Drake then shared his receipt accompanied by a checkmark and red rose emoticons. Which for the unversed is a symbol for Democratic Socialists Of America. The rapper never mentioned his support for the organisation before this.
On the other side, Drake’s donation was such a huge amount that the bank called it a fraud on his card. Mustafa revealed this in a screenshot of their chat that he shared.
Meanwhile, many celebrities have come ahead to help bail out protestors. Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen, and others have pledged to help bail out protestors and also look after their medical bills. Chrissy also donated $100,000 to the cause.
The main reason to have protestors out as soon as possible is also the outbreak of COVID-19. The risk of them contracting it in the prisons is higher as reported by many portals.
