Atlanta rapper Terrell Davis, aka Ralo, posted a video to Instagram mocking homeless people by throwing money at them outside a shelter.
The video shows Ralo throwing money out of the sunroof of his car while his friends are heard laughing while homeless men and women fight each other for the money, WXIA reported. The video now has more than 100,000 views and over 2,000 comments, many of which call him out for the heartless behavior.
“F*ck going to the strip club,” Ralo said in the video’s description. “All the ni**as wit money let’s go to all the homeless shelters and make it rain on the poor people… #RALOHOMELESSCHALLENGE”
Fans and followers weren’t too keen on the stunt either, posting comments that range from civil and disappointed to hostile.
“Please reconsider your method of distribution next time,” Instagram user KayJ posted. “I know people are saying people would have complained either way, but it’s really about a group of people who historically have been stereotyped as less deserving of human decency. ‘Justice consists in doing no injury to men; decency in giving them no offense.'”
“Very sad,” Ashley Berryhill posted. “They thought was great. But you truly treated them did respectfully like animals like they get treated daily by others on the street. Very nice but done very distastefully. And why post it? You got the attention you wanted.”
Ralo wasn’t appologetic, however. “They need the money more than we do,” he said in a Twitter video. “How the f*** did you get mad at me for making it rain on them?”
“At least I made the news in ah good way tonight instead of putting @RichHomieQuan p*ssy on the news,” he later tweeted.
He plans to do it again in the future.
