Over the last few months, Megan Thee Stallion has been thrust into the spotlight. And now, her latest contribution to those affected by the senseless spa shootings in Atlanta has left everyone shocked…
Megan, whose real name is Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, is a professional rapper, singer, and songwriter who is best known for her singles “Make It Hot,” “Tina Snow,” “Suga,” and more recently, “WAP” with Cardi B.
And it’s safe to say that she’s now very popular.
The rapper was even spotted hanging out with perhaps the most popular woman in Hollywood earlier last year – Kylie Jenner.
For example, who could forget the drama following Megan being shot in the foot by Tory Lanez at a high-profile Hollywood party?
It was all very dramatic…
But thankfully, Megan didn’t suffer any life-threatening injuries and she bounced back bigger than ever.
But this time it’s for standing in solidarity with the Asian-American community.
And people are amazed by her kindness…
The rapper took to Instagram to announce…
She’s partnering with Fashion Nova Cares and Asian activist, May Lee, to donate to nonprofit, Advancing Justice, dedicated to the civil rights of AANHPI in Georgia and the Southeast.
As we know, 8 people were killed in the attacks, with 6 of those people being of Asian descent.
It was later announced that twenty-one-year-old Robert Aaron Long was arrested and confessed to the murders.
“I am heartbroken by the loss of eight individuals taken from their families on March 16 in a senseless, violent attack against Asian Americans,” the rapper wrote.
In memory of the victims, Megan, Fashion Nova, and Lee are donating a combined $50,000 to the nonprofit.
The rapper pledged:
“To honor the memory of these victims, @FashionNova and I have partnered with the journalist and Asian activist @mayleeshow on a $50,000 donation to @advancing_justice_atl who work tirelessly to protect the civil and human rights of Asian Americans in Georgia and the Southeast.”
Megan is just one of many celebrities speaking out against the rise in hate crimes.
Others include; Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande, Joe Jonas, Mindy Kaling, LeBron James, to name a few.
