Beyoncé’s Rep Proves To Harry Belafonte That She Is Socially Responsible
Last week, actor and social activist Harry Belafonte criticized Beyoncé and Jay-Z for ignoring their “social responsibility” and seeing how everyone knows that his allegations are utter foolishness, Bey’s rep has released a statement of her charitable contributions to the ‘Wall Street Journal‘ to prove him wrong. The statement contained “an abbreviated list of the unselfish work Beyoncé has done and continues to do.”
Lets get started shall we?
- The 30-year-old singer and entrepreneur is the co-founder of the Survivor Foundation, “a multi-purpose community outreach facility in downtown Houston.”
- She donated “100K in 2008 to the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund to aid Texas victims of Hurricane Ike.”
- She performed in “MTV’s Hope For Haiti Now! Benefit, in addition to making a generous monetary donation.”
Those are just a few of Bey’s many charitable contributions, the latest being her partnership with the United Nations for World Humanitarian Day. She recorded a live performance of her hit ‘I Was Here’ at the United Nations General Assembly, which will be released on World Humanitarian Day (August 19th) with the intention of uniting one billion people.
Mr. Belafonte … how do you feel now?
