RPT: Jay-Z & Beyoncé Wired Bail Money for Baltimore & Ferguson Protesters
Jay-Z and Beyoncé reportedly wired tens of thousands of dollars to help bail Ferguson and Baltimore protesters out of jail.
Author and activist dream hampton, who has worked closely with Jay-Z, wrote on Twitter, “When we needed money for bail for Baltimore protesters, I … hit Jay up, as I had for Ferguson, wired tens of thousands in mins.”
The tweet has since been deleted, but dream hampton stands by her words.
''I can say I've personally helped facilitate donations they've given to protesters directly and that they never ask for anything in return, especially publicity,” she told the New York Daily News.
There has been no comment from Jay-Z’s team following the allegation.
