Master P Doesn't Think Kevin Hart Needs To Challenge Celebs For Hurricane Harvey Donations

Kevin Hart may have recruited the likes Nicki Minaj, T.I. and The Rock for his Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge, but one musician in particular isn’t impressed by the comedian’s call to action.

Master P recently spoke with TMZ about the challenge, and shared his belief that no one, regardless their fame and wealth, should be forced into making a monetary donation.

The No Limit founder added that it’s more important to give “from your heart.”

“I’m blessed that Kevin Hart made a donation. But I feel like he don’t have to do that because it’s not necessary,” Master P said. “A lot people gon’ do what they wanna do. It’s they money. We made a substantial] donation. It really don’t matter what it is. As long as you give it from your heart.”

P later pointed out the coincidence that the flooding in Houston, which he referred to as his second home, is taking place on the 12th anniversary Hurricane Katrina.

“It’s crazy how it’s the anniversary Hurricane Katrina,” he said. “And now Hurricane Harvey has definitely devastated Houston, Texas and all the people in the surrounding areas. Cause a lot people right now is suffering. They’re not gonna be able to get back in their homes. We know how it is from New Orleans.”

On Sunday (August 27), Kevin Hart uploaded a video to Instagram asking his celebrity friends to join him in donating $25,000 to The Red Cross.

“I think we’re participating in a lot challenges on the internet,” Hart said. “Some meaningful. Some meaningless, but we’ve all done ’em … At this point, I’m going to start a real challenge. I’m challenging a lot my celebrity friends to follow my lead in donating $25,000 to Hurricane Harvey. To The Red Cross.”

Joel Osteen Caught Running Closed Church Jux, Twitter Slander Has Been Biblical

Joel Osteen, the big-toothed leader Houston’s Lakewood Church, has sent out his PR squad to handle the media mess related to his sprawling facility remaining closed to Hurricane Harvey victims displaced by floods. After claims that the church was inaccessible were debunked and Lakewood ficials feigning difficulty, Twitter unleashed Biblical slander on Osteen and his establishment.

First, check out TMZ getting to the bottom the so-called difficulty getting to Lakewood Church:

So as noted, the church opened its doors on Tuesday, most likely due to the pressure from the public that the building, which holds 16,000, claimed flooding and other issues as a reason it couldn’t be more accommodating. Considering that Osteen lives in a massive mansion while his flock and residents in the city are struggling to maintain, it’s easy to see why the reaction has been so intense.

Check out some the unholy slander Joel Osteen and Lakewood Church has endured over the days below and on the following pages.

“Buffing up for xxxtentacion,” wrote another user.

“Lmao this is gold. Like ya take a pic me holding up these weights bro , yea that’s tight hahahah,” added one more detractor.
