Talk about helping the cause. Jay Z and Beyonce have been donating thousands to bail out Baltimore protesters from jail.
Writer/filmmaker Dream Hampton took to Twitter to reveal the news, before later deleting the tweets.
“I’m going to tweet this and I don’t care if Jay gets mad,” she began. “When we needed money for bail for Baltimore protesters, I asked hit Jay up, as I had for Ferguson, wired tens of thousands in mins.
“When BLM needed infrastructure money for the many chapters that we’re growing like beautiful dandelions, Carters wrote a huge check,” Hampton continued. “… and more stuff, too much to list actually, that they always insist folk keep quiet.
“I am interested in mass movements where as many people as possible feel invested. I know that can’t be built with rules on rules on rules.”
“Welp, I just got the ‘can you shut the f*k up * head to brunch’ text. Gonna erase my error ridden rant. Hope you got your little screenshot.”
Hampton finally concluded that Jay and Beyonce “gave cuz that’s what they do. & should I ever get major bread, I’m gonna be Howard Hughes, wiring out money anonymously too.”
