As Hurricane Harvey continues to wreak havoc on Houston, Texas, celebrities have band together to used their platform to raise awareness and funds to provide relief to the countless displaced families under water.
Kevin Hart was among one of the first celebrities to challenge his peers to make a donation of $25,000 to the cause of their choice. Stars like The Rock, Diddy, Chris Brown and more joined in pledging respective amounts. Despite his heartfelt intentions, Hart faced backlash from those who seemingly felt his challenge was self-serving.
Master P recorded a video addressing Kevin Hart’s challenge, calling it unnecessary. “I’m blessed that Kevin Hart made a donation, but I feel like he don’t have to do that because it’s not necessary. A lot of people gon’ do what they want to do. It’s they money. We made a senaptous [sic] donation. It really don’t matter what it is long as you giving from your heart. I don’t think you have to do that with other people. Just let them give from their heart.”
The New Orleans rapper then took to Instagram to clarify his statements, which may have actually made it worse.
“I have nothing against Kevin Hart,” he said. “Houston is my second home. I’m probably one of the first to give. I gave a lot of money but I don’t have to sit around and talk about it. And I don’t need no celebrity tell me what I need to do.”
Kevin has since raised over one million for Hurricane Harvey evacuees.
Does it really matter if someone chooses to publicly make a donation to a needing cause or do you agree with Master P?
