Drake Donated $100K To American Black Families But His Credit Card Got Flagged As Fraud
The Weeknd also made an impressive donation!
He’s dropping more than just 10 Bands! Recently, a certain Canadian rapper was tagged in a social media challenge, urging him to spend some cash in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. As it turns out, Drake’s donation was so large that it actually caused his card to be flagged.
Mustafa the Poet, a Toronto-based songwriter, tagged Drizzy in a post asking him to “match my donation but add three zeroes.”
The “Toosie Slide” rapper was quick to step up to the challenge, donating a whopping $100,000 to the National Bail Out collective.
Apparently, Drake’s bank was taken aback by the massive transaction and flagged it as fraudulent.
“They just called fraud on my card LOL,” the father of one told Mustafa in a DM. “I donated 100K. They were like nah 😂.”
It seems that Drake was able to clear the air and verify the donation though, as shortly after a receipt from the transaction was shared on social media as well.
“The streets said they need receipts. MashaAllah,” Mustafa tweeted along with a photo of the 6ix god’s donation.
Drake wasn’t the only Canadian star to be challenged by Mustafa — he also tagged The Weeknd in his post.
Not only did the “Blinding Lights” singer match Drake’s $100,000 to the National Bail Out collective, but he also sent $200,000 to the Colin Kaepernick Know Your Rights Camp.
“Keep supporting our brothers and sisters out there risking everything to push for actual change for our black lives,” the Scarborough native captioned a recent post.
“Urging everyone with big pockets to give and give big and if you have less please give what you can even if it's a small amount. #blacklivesmatter”.
The Weeknd has been continuing his push for other big names in the industry to follow in his footsteps as well, even tagging several popular music labels urging them to donate.
The Toronto stars aren’t the only ones to show support in the ongoing situation.
Celebrities from all across Canada have taken it upon themselves tousing blank photos and #BlackOutTuesday to show their solidarity.
“Side by side,” Drake captioned his post — a simple but powerful statement to go along with his incredible donation.
