Reactions

Many social media users who reacted to the video opined that the rappers should have given to charity instead of destroying the luxury car.

Here are some of the comments:

@IAMR0YALT:

"Should have auctioned a pink rolls and donated the money to charity even if it was just the profits. I’m a wasteful extravagant person but that’s a bit much."

@slothmanifesto:

"Wasteful. Donate that money instead, but you have to show off for the cameras and create hype for an album that might not be a success.”

@iamjovan_:

“This makes me angry. So many black kids going to bed hungry day in and day out, and black people out here destroying a car that cost thousands of dollars just because they can.”

@Blake_AnB_INC

"I just want my student loans paid off and they are destroying a Rolls Royce."
