The Minnesota Freedom Fund is being scrutinized for lack of transparency after spending only $200,000 on bailouts for protesters and rioters after raising over $30 million in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

The Minnesota Freedom Fund is a non-profit organization whose purported mission is to pay “criminal bail and immigration bond[s] for those who cannot afford to as we seek to end discriminatory, coercive, and oppressive jailing.”

Since the death of George Floyd, the Minnesota Freedom Fund has seen an influx of donations from around the world, particularly within the past month after celebrities promoted the organization on Twitter. Rapper “Noname” challenged other celebrities to match her donation.

Seth Rogan and others soon followed suit.

But after receiving over $30 million in donations, the New York Post reported that the Minnesota Freedom Fund revised its goals to include the expansion of legal support for “those incarcerated protesting the murder of George Floyd” which they claimed is a part of their “core values and mission.”

Upon hearing this change, the Twitter mob quickly moved to criticize Minnesota Freedom Fund’s change in policy and demanded transparency from the organization.


The Minnesota Freedom Fund responded with a Twitter thread this morning. 


That clarification (or lack thereof) was still not enough for the Twitter mob.
