With celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and Colin Kaepernick donating serious amounts of money to bail protesters and rioters out from jail, some musicians are matching the cause by pitching in a few of their own hard-earned dollars.
Artists like Marshmello, Kayzo, Ghastly, Deorro, Svdden Death, Subtronics, and more have donated thousands to organizations like the Minnesota Freedom Fund, and The People’s City Council Freedom Fund of Los Angeles. These monies will mainly go toward paying bail, legal costs and other fees incurred by those arrested during the past week of protests. To confirm their individual commitments, the producers/DJs made their donation amounts public per the posts below.
In related news, artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s menswear collection, CEO of the trendy Off-White label and occasional DJ, Virgil Abloh was criticized for only donating $50. In response, he later clarified that he actually gave $20,500.00+ as he told those who stole his merchandise from multiple stores to “hang your head in shame.”
