All donations will benefit Oxfam America, Partners in Health, Red Cross, UNICEF and Wyclef’s Yele Haiti foundation.
All yesterday there was a rumor that Kanye West had been banned from the “Hope For Haiti” star studded telethon. MTV Network reps are denying those claims. But rumors just don’t materialize out of no where…
A source released a statement saying that Yeezy was banned because of his tendency to “steal the spotlight and the infamous remarks about George Bush he made at the Katrina telethon. They told AOL’s PopEater, “After what he said on the Katrina telethon and the way he behaved at the MTV Video Music Awards, everyone agrees it’s just best that he does not participate…Kanye has to make everything about himself. He will do anything to steal the spotlight, and, well, this night it’s just not about him.”
MTV Networks claims that’s not true that they reached out to Ye’, but that he chose not to participate… Rumors don’t materialize out of “nothing”, but *shrugs*… all that matters is that the people of Haiti get the help they need. To donate you can visit www.hopeforhaitinow.org , call the Hope For Haiti hotline at 877-99-HAITI or text “give” to 50555.
