Mike Epps Has A Message For Celebrities Showing Off Their Huge Hurricane Harvey Donations

The recently destructive events that took place in Houston, Texas, as a result of Hurricane Harvey saw several residents of the city lose everything they had.

Seeing that the number of people in need keeps growing by the minute, celebrities have taken the time to donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to help. However, several of them have broadcasted their hefty donations on social media, and one person who isn’t here for that is comedian Mike Epps.

Celebs like Kevin Hart, who started the #HurricaneHarveyChallenge, DrakeWaka Flocka FlameT.I. and more have taken to social media to share how much they were donating to those affected by the natural disaster.

Epps took to Instagram to explain that being charitable now seems like a competition to see who is the “biggest celebrity.”

Do you agree with what he is saying? Should the amounts these celebrities are donating be broadcast-ed or should they just do it and keep it to themselves? Let us know in the comments below.

TYLER PERRY DONATING $1 MIL FOR HARVEY RELIEF $250K to Osteen’s Church

Tyler Perry is joining in with the donations by so many other major artist and celebrities. In the wake up the Hurricane Harvey devastation, he is donating his own cash to relief efforts and spreading it around to charities that have boots on the ground.

Tyler commended the massive relief efforts in Houston  … committing to a $1 million gift. He went to bat for Pastor Joel Osteen too, who’s taken heat for not immediately opening the doors to evacuees.

Tyler says he knows Joel well and that’s simply not the case … and he’s giving him $250k to show he’s still got his back.

Perry’s also giving $250k to Beyonce‘s pastor’s church, and will decide who to donate the other $500k to soon … but says he’s making sure it gets directly to the people who need it.

We are sure there will be some backlash behind his donation to Joel Osteen with the media heated recently when a video went viral stating that the pastor was refusing to open his church doors to victims of the storm.
