6ix9ine tried to do good, but his plan backfired. As a result, he fell back on his primary strength: trolling. 🙄

Upon breaking Eminem's record for most YouTube views on a hip-hop music video in 24 hours with his latest single, "GOOBA," as well as launching a line of merch to support the release, 6ix9ine has reportedly found himself with an extra $2 million.

Having already blown huge amounts of cash on flashy cars and jewelry inspired by Bruce the shark from Finding Nemo, 6ix9ine decided to direct his money toward a more noble cause: child hunger. In a since-deleted Instagram post, the 24-year-old rapper announced on Tuesday that he'd be donating $200,000 to an organization called No Kid Hungry.

What a kind gesture! Well, almost.

Apparently, the non-profit declined 6ix9ine's financial support. Laura Washburn, director of strategic communications for No Kid Hungry, explained why.

"We are grateful for Mr. Hernandez’s generous offer to donate to No Kid Hungry but we have informed his representatives that we have declined this donation," she said. "As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values." 

Not long after, 6ix9ine responded on his IG. "@nokidhungry rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children I never seen something so cruel," he wrote.

Also, in response to an update from Akadmiks, 6ix9ine commented, "They rather have the kids starve ... the world we live in."

Instead, 6ix9ine suggested using this money to advance another initiative he thinks could benefit: Rich The Kid's "jewelry dept." Unsurprisingly, this idea reignited an ongoing fight between the two.

Rich then proclaimed on Tuesday that he was the "king" of New York in an IG Story, leading Tekashi to respond by writing, "He running from his debt in LA 💀I’m about to call 911." Fitting, since the one account 6ix9ine follows on IG is the New York Police Department (NYPD).

Backing up his previous statement that 6ix9ine "ain’t got more money than me or Jewelry or CARS," Rich shared a flick of himself sitting on top of a blue Lamborghini in the streets of NYC.

Personalities from Young Thug to Chet Hanks have denounced 6ix9ine in recent days, stemming from his cooperation with authorities in the cases of several members of the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods, a set he once claimed.

For now, though, he's still operating under the premise of "all press is good press."
