Kanye West seemingly donates $150,000 to GoFundMe page for Chicago security guard fatally shot by police



A GoFundMe campaign set up for the family of a black security guard who was fatally shot by an Illinois police officer has raised more than double its $150,000 goal, in large part thanks to apparent donations by rapper and Chicago native Kanye West.

Jemel Roberson, 26, was an armed security guard at Manny’s Blue Room Bar in Midlothian, a southwestern Chicago suburb.

Roberson was shot to death on Sunday, Nov. 11, while trying to restrain a suspected gunman in the bar’s parking lot. He was wearing “plain black clothing with no markings readily identifying him as a security guard,” Illinois State Police said in a preliminary investigation report released Tuesday.

The GoFundMe campaign was created on the day Roberson died with a goal of $150,000.

But as of Saturday afternoon, it had raised more than $305,000. The largest donation came in 10 increments of $15,000 each by a user under the name of Kanye West.

West and his representatives did not immediately respond to requests to confirm the donations.

Midlothian police were responding to calls of a shooting at the bar when they found Roberson in the parking lot.

In a statement released on Tuesday, Illinois State Police said that Roberson ignored commands to drop his gun.

Greg Kulis, attorney for the Roberson family, said witnesses were yelling at the officers, telling them that Roberson was a security guard, when the officer aimed his gun and shot Roberson.

Midlothian police called the incident “the equivalent of a ‘blue-on-blue,’ a friendly fire incident.”

The officer’s name has not been released, and he is currently on paid administrative leave. Kulis and a local pastor are calling for the officer to resign or be terminated.

“There’s been a spectre of death around my life : Veteran Actor RMD.



“None of my parents lived to be 60, so life for me is just about to get started.”

“There’s been a spectre of death around my life, that’s what I’ve been dealing with last year till this year. When I turned 59, it was a big deal for me, a big deal for me! My mom died at 59, my father died at 57/58.”

“So, it was like, can I break it? When people see me and I go on a weight loss, people think that… you know, it’s health. Both my parents were diabetic and hypertensive, I don’t want to be that. I don’t want to be diabetic and hypertensive, I want to be healthier. At least give me a fighting chance to change that whole cycle. Yes, I’m a Christian now, so I’ve broken that yoke but I have to also help myself.”

“Becoming 60 for me is even a bigger deal, so when July comes and I become 60. You know how the Bible says old things have passed away, I will truly become a new man because that is when I’ll make a bucket list. So all these things that you think I’ve achieved or done, for me it’s nothing, like zero.”

“So I’m going to now sit down when I’m 60 and do a bucket list … and then we’ll start.”
