The Weeknd recently donated $250,000 to the Black Lives Matter, according to reports on The FADER.
This news comes just a few days after it was revealed that the Canadian singer donated $50,000 towards founding a program for Ethiopic Studies at the University of Toronto.
The Weeknd joins a long list of Hip Hop personalities who have expressed their support of the Black Lives Matter movement in recent times. Lil Durk recently got a new tattoo in honor of the movement, while earlier this year, Nipsey Hussle released a series of t-shirts to honor the nationwide organization.
Conversely, Kevin Gates made it clear that he is not a fan of the Black Lives Matter movement in a video published earlier last month.
