Last week, Kanye’s team stepped up to address his support of the Black Lives Matter movement. The response came after social media accused Ye of not getting involved following the death of black man George Floyd.
Kanye West is donating $2 million to support the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery. Representatives of the rapper said he’s paying for a college fund for Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter, Gianna. West is also helping with the legal bills for the three families. Part of the money will also help struggling black-owned businesses in the artist’s native Chicago, his representatives said. (KKTV News)

Last Thursday, New York radio personality Ebro Darden hopped online to single out Kanye West about his lack of support. Ebro shared an open-ended question asking about West’s silence and whereabouts during these trying times.
