BTS made a huge donation to the Black Lives Matter movement this weekend which spawned their fanbase, including John Cena, to match the amount together.
Variety first reported BTS donated $1 million to the Black Lives Matter organization last week. Following their generous donation, the K-pop group’s BTS Army fanbase had the idea to raise money in an effort to match the amount … and within 24 hours they had reached $800K!
Turns out John Cena was one of them, as he tweeted on Monday saying: “Very happy to join #BTSARMY in efforts to match BTS tremendous donation #ARMYMatch1M.”
It is unclear how much Cena donated, but the initial $1 million goal was surpassed by Sunday night. According to a statement released by the fundraiser, the money will be dedicated to “bailouts for those arrested for protesting police brutality,” “black-led advocacy organizations fighting against systemic injustice” and “support for the physical and mental health of the black community.”
Meanwhile, Triple H recently gave a speech to the NXT roster about having an open door when it comes to talking about Black Lives Matter.
PC recruit AJ Francis tweeted: “While somebody out here snitchin to these dirt sheets about everything, somebody need to snitch that Triple H came & told us that if we today, tomorrow or ever want to talk to him about our feelings on #BlackLivesMatter he wants to have that convo.”
