Ice Cube is using his funds to help a looted Walmart.
On Saturday, May 30th, a Walmart in Tampa, Florida was looted by more than 200 people during a protest for George Floyd.
At the time Walmart was closed because of the protest going on at the University Mall nearby. Blunt objects were used to break the glass doors before hundreds of people rushed in and reportedly took more than $100,000 worth of items. The local sheriff’s department is asking the public to help identify the looters and also stated that the act was disrespectful to the peaceful protesters who were expressing themselves without violence.
Ice Cube reacted with this tweet:
“No arrest and I’ll cover the $100k. Deal?”
