It was announced earlier this month that Chief Keef would be hosting a benefit concert in honor of Dillon Cooper, a 1 year old who was killed as result of a shooting. However, as of now it looks like the concert has been put on pause.
As you should know, Dillon was a toddler who was run over by a two suspects who are said to have been involved in the Capo shooting.
According to Alki David, the event organizer, Rev. Michael Pfleger , a pastor at St. Sabina Catholic Church on Chicago’s South Side, is the person to blame. In a statement given to the Chicago Tribune, David stated:
“The meddling, attention seeking Father Pfleger, who bullied the owner of the downtown theater to back out of his contract, will not succeed. He is exploiting this tragedy and taking money away from the victims and solid charities who are doing good work in Chicago.”
Pfleger has denied all accusations and claims he has never spoken to the venue. That seems a little hard to believe since the Reverand took to his Facebook when the concert was announced to post:
“Instead of having a concert … why doesn’t he man up and acknowledge it’s time to stop this violence and apologize for his part in it!!!! We don’t need a concert … we need PEACE.”
To further back him up, a representative from the Redmoon Theater, the event’s venue, also states he has never contacted any staff from there as well. In fact, the representative claimed they declined the concert because they didn’t fully understand it’s purpose.
Looks like the plan to have Chief Keef’s hologram perform in Beverly Hills has been postponed for now but we will be sure to keep you updated.
