Kodak Black Allegedly Deletes Tweet Pledging $1 Million To Charity! Kodak Black has allegedly deleted a tweet in which he promised to donate $1 Million to charity within one year out of prison should the then President Donald Trump pardon him. As fate would have it, the rapper found himself among 70 people who were granted clemency on January 19 by Donald Trump on his last day in office.
“If the president them free me, I’m gonna spend 1 million on charity within the first year I’m out,” wrote the rapper in the now-deleted tweet. “That’s on everything,” he further vowed. He sent out the tweet back in November 2020 while his legal team was looking for ways to get him out of prison.
However as things stand, it looks like the 23-year old rapper has had a change of heart with regards to his earlier pledge. His attorney, Bradford Cohen in an interview with TMZ, defended the rapper saying, “A statement promising something for something in exchange is not appropriate and although Kodak has always given to charity his whole career and will continue to do charity, not in exchange for anything. Some think this is a story. It isn’t.
“Instead of harping on a young Black man and how much charity he does, why don’t we take a look at the amount of charity the writers of these articles do? Last week, Kodak pledged $100k to setting up a scholarship fund in the name of Meadow Poll.” Said Cohen.
A day after his release from prison Kodak took to twitter to thank Donald Trump for the pardon and for giving him a second chance at life.
“I Want To Thank The President @RealDonaldTrump For His Commitment To Justice Reform And Shortening My Sentence,” he wrote. “I Also Want To Thank Everyone For Their Support And Love. It Means More Than You Will Ever Know. I Want To Continue Giving Back, Learning And Growing. @DanScavino.”He tweeted.
The road to freedom is going to be a long one for the rapper though as he still faces up to 30 years in prison in a sexual assault charge in South Carolina. Prosecutors allege Kodak forced himself on a woman in a hotel room in February 2016 biting her neck and breast. According to the police affidavit, the woman “repeatedly told [him] to stop” during the sexual encounter and explains “her injuries were documented in a sexual assault kit that was completed by medical personnel.”
