US Charity, No Kid Hungry has reportedly declined a $200,000 donation from Daniel Hernandez, popularly known as Tekashi 6ix9ine who recently got released from prison.

Tekashi 6ix9ine had earlier taken to his Instagram page to announce that he would be making a donation to a children’s charity.

He wrote: “But NEVER forget the children & families who depend on OUR PUBLIC schools for daily meals and nutritions to keep our future leaders growing to their best potential. To every influencer out there REMEMBER if you are blessed GOD gave you that blessing not just for YOU but also TO HELP OTHERS 🙌🏼 GOD FIRST.”

However, in a statement, No Kid Hungry’s director of strategic communications Laura Washburn said that the charity would not be accepting the donation.
