Video: Wyclef’s Response to TSG’s Accusations

Wyclef responds to The Smoking Gun’s accusations against Yele Haiti and explains those charges to the best of his capability. The situation is pretty fucked up, considering he has to come back to this after what he has just seen in Haiti. A PR rep for Yele Haiti also told AllHipHop that what was in those Income Tax reports was completely legal.

He does, although say, that you don’t have to donate through him in particular. You can still help out and donate to whichever non-governmental organization you trust, as long as it’s getting to the people of Haiti.

    No one ever plays fair. When’s the last time you read or heard some inspiring news…

    *Buys Steel Reserve*
    *Pours it out for the Cardinal’s 2009-2010 season*
    *Downloads the butterfly effect song*
    *Applauds Joell’s second verse on that Joell/Novel song*

    I suppose him being there is the ray of light out of this whole story that should resonate, if you were looking for the positive of it all.

  4. Sham aka The Computer Puter! Says:

    we don’t believe you, you need more people.

    1. did not acknowledge any of the tax accusations

    2. Has not stated wat donations yele has done in the past

    3. Has not stated where these donations are gonna go directly.

  5. nation Says:

    I agree with 911. most of these shits are usually tax-write offs anyway, problem is when it comes to Wyclef & Haiti… he’s always done good shit for his country. so when people say he paid himself to perform, it just looks sketchy. but would 100K make a difference to Wyclef if it’s just gonna make him look bad to his whole country? I don’t think he took that money, real talk

    it does look bad though that he was paying out his own companies and companies he was on the board of… but, what can you expect. that kinda shit happens all the time

  6. Sham aka The Computer Puter! Says:

    u want to really help out? send food clothes, and water.Shit that can be readily used and available. It’s gonna be months until all this yele money is even collected from the phone companies and put to use. Send things that’s gonna help immediately now as opposed to 5 dollars, 2-3 of which will end in Wycfef’s pocket

  7. 911 Says:

    but would 100K make a difference to Wyclef if it’s just gonna make him look bad to his whole country?

    ^>Perfect sense. Donates a dollar.

    In that same frame of thought…money is the ultimate corruptor, so I read. Is a volunteer, a volunteer if they’re paid to be there?

    no, it’s widely been said and accepted that money is the best thing to help right now.

    I’m sure baby had love for b.g and wayne but he still stole from them.

    Ome people love their parents but steal from them

    So although I don’t want to believe he did only, way to prove he didn’t and that simple by open his book and showing complete transparency.

    Money is the root of all evil. Right now this story is in the hip hop community but as soon as the nypost put it on the front page it will get bigger.

  31. Sleep Says:

    To me the most damaging evidence is he paid himself 100k to perform. I’m sure he don’t make to much to perform. I think hov and 50 are the only 2 people in hip hop to get that type of money to perform.

The U.S. and Europe is the reason haiti is so impoverished in the first place, no we’re trying to help them? Naw. Not falling for it.

  69. Curt Mcgirt Says:

    There has been a lot of bad timing with this Haiti tragedy from Pat Robertson’s claim that this is related to a “Deal With the Devil” to this. TSG really puts Clef on blast not by just making the claim but by posting the income tax return form 990. For those that dont know, the 990 is the standard series of forms that 501(c)3 (tax exempt non profits) file based on receipts,donations salaries for employees etc. Tax exempt org’s are required to adhere to public disclosure meaning that any inquiring mind can receive copies of tax returns, etc (i.e TSS). this exposes Wyclef to a lot of potential backlash but I dont think he is trying to get over on his people. Any body that wants to run a non profit needs to realize that the #1 thing to be aware of is that your credibility is the only thing that matters.

    Clef doesn’t need this on his plate at all. It’s fucked up that people choose to make news based on human suffering to get that needed one up on the same ones that allow them to exist. Hold ya head!

  78. tamere Says:

    When countries “give” money it comes with two things:
    -“fuck you pay me” = debt
    -“fuck you pay me” = rebuild using our product (catepillar, gm, etc…) or else

    When countries give food, water:
    -it’s usually what they have in excess and what is close to their expirery date
    (which is good in this situation because the country is really hungry and thirsty).
    – “fuck you eat me” (pause) = buy our products (most of these countrie eg:US have subsidies and those farmers aint doing shit anyways)

    When they give clothing:
    -“fuck you wear me” = buy from those companies (wtv brands)
    -IMO the best thing after food because many haitian dont have the opportunity to actually wear anything.

    All this “help” the NGO’s give is greatly appreciated and needed (red cross’s been there for a minute) but the problem is that the mentality has to change (if you’re haitian you know what I mean). Im not saying that they are in this situation because of that but Haiti was not supposed to be the poorest country in the world (“perle des antilles”) and we can blame the Spanish, the French, The States but all I know is the generation of the 40’s it’s been going downhill.

    Whether it be presedential issues, cultural issues, mob or gang issues haitian’s have to tough it out (like they always did) and sit down and revise the situation. The diaspora has to come back and help rebuild the country if they hope that it can have a fighting chance in this new world we are in.

    So all these companies and countries have back thoughts that can help them profit (publicity, tax evasion, expansion, etc) but at the end of the day everything helps. IMO if each person gives a little in their own way Haiti will be good).

    And Wyclef > dude’s been doig huge things in Haiti (i heard from high up places and from cousins, aunts and kids).

    you can believe in what you want FAITH GOD HOPE ILLUMINATI ALIENS whateva you want the fact is HAITI might get stronger as a faith driven nation but if any body thinks for a nano second that haiti will rebuild its infrastructure,school system,& corrupt government you are sadly fukin mistaken so yea donate to wyclef,red cross,salvation army etc,send money,clothes,food & water but just know that 5 years from now its still gonna be even more fucked over there if you really wanna help adopt or marry a hatien n bring em to the states…………if not bulldoze the motherfucker and bring back Action Park(google Action Park 90s babies)

    This is how the media preys on the ignorant and uneducated. Divisive journalism during a time of tragedy is type demonic. If you actually look at any other 501c3 and or NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) their Internal Revenue Service records will look similar. You need office space.

    This is how the media preys on the ignorant and uneducated. Divisive journalism during a time of tragedy is type demonic. If you actually look at any other 501c3 and or NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) their Internal Revenue Service records will look similar. You need office space. Since non profits and or NGOs are usually started by a group of professionals that own business that can provide services at discounts rates guess who gets the business.

    Smarten up people.

    I can’t tend to ignore the fact that Haiti is/was the first country in the W. Hemisphere to gain its INDEPENDENCE from EUROPE!

    And now all of a sudden 80% of its population are below the poverty line and are dwelling total damnation!

    Just like Africa is riddled with the AIDS epidemic and other various diseases.

    If everyone would just SIT BACK, CALM THE FUCK DOWN, and WATCH you will see that this is more than just a coincidence!

    Open your eyes and pay attention.

    This isn’t about race or color!

    It’s about money. Always has, Always will…

    This country (government) owes Europe money and they are willing to do anything to make payments.

    Go down there and give you time; not your money!!!

    this shit is all for nothing. There is no non profit in existance that operates with 100% going to charity. Fuck …look at the red cross numbers…the fucking CEO pulls $565,000 a year, with only 19 cents of every dollar going to actual people in need (charitynavigator.org).

    Trying to demonize this mans efforts is basura and if your buying into this shit the wool is being pulled over your eyes

    =======================
    It’s tricknology designed to get people to donate to Red Cross instead of Clef’s org.

    Fuck the bullshit, all charities are kinda shady. That’s no reason not to try & help out the people in Haiti.

  93. GC Says:

    very unconvincing, Clef.

  94. jredmond Says:

    I might have fudge that last number but still, the percentage aint no where near 100%

  95. jredmond Says:

    The numbers show that 90.1% of red cross donations go to program costs, but this includes everything outside of administrative and fundraising costs, including fuel and transportation costs, which is a staggering amount percentage wise.

  96. jredmond Says:

    I ain’t bagging the red cross…they still do massive amounts of good…I’m just holding Wyclef down, because it seems the vultures are out to get a brother.

  98. kAiros Says:

    As ignorant as this may sound…

    If I were to give money to any donation it would be Yele simply off of the fact that Wyclef is a native of that country.

    Point blank period.

    This man was born and raised there!!!

    Bush can’t say shit because he doesn’t give a fuck about his own people yet alone those of another country (if it doesn’t produce any finances for his evil little plots).

    Niggaz is making youtube videos while fucking people are dying!!!

    I swear to God I wish muthafuckas like Rush Limbagaugh would pass through The Stuy or Brownsville talking that slick shit!!!

    Partial Statement by Wyclef Jean posted on the Yele site:

    “It is impossible for me to even comprehend the recent attacks on my character and the integrity of my foundation, Yele Haiti. The fact that these attacks come as we are mobilized to meet the greatest human tragedy in the history of Haiti only serves to perplex me even further.
    “I first learned of these baseless attacks when I left Haiti late Friday, where I had been since 12 hours after the earthquake.

    Let me be clear: I denounce any allegation that I have ever profited personally through my work with Yele Haiti. These baseless attacks are simply not true.
    “In fact, I have, time and again, committed significant amounts of my own money to support the work of Yele Haiti and other organizations in support of our efforts over the years.

    More than that, I have spent countless hours, days, months and years of my life committed to the country of Haiti, the people of Haiti and the success of Haiti.

    These baseless allegations were first put forward by a fringe website with a history of pursuing sensationalist story lines. The mainstream media’s pursuit of them has required Yele to divert precious resources during this critical time in order to answer various inquiries. That must end.”

    Louis Farrakhan > MLK

    not even close either …

    ^ ^ man, HELL NO. MLK and Thurgood Marshall dismantled Jim Crow between the two of them. that enabled generations of black folk to get business loans, better homes, access to better universities, all types of sh*t. i think they strategically were off in their decision to not truly pursue separate but equal (b/c sh*t was always separate and UNequal) but they laid the legal groundwork for opposing racial discrimination from any direction and that’s way more of a legacy than Min. Farrakhan will ever have…read some history, why don’t you…and on top of that, MLK never flipped on his partners like Farrakhan flipped on Malcolm…

  103. Curt Mcgirt Says:

    For those who want to know,for 2009 the Red Cross had a 11.7% AFR(administrative and fundraising expense rate). In a nutshell this represents the percentage of dollars used to maintain the charity from their revenues. The lower the percentage the more $$$$ that goes to the cause.

    With all that said, muthafuckas is still showin they ass with all the ignorant comments. Opinions are what they are and like the saying goes, they’re just like assholes; “Everybody has one and is usually full of shit”.

    If you aint part of the solution then you’re the problem.

  104. sowait Says:

    ^^
    Yeah the problem here in lies in the fact that that 11.7% of a great deal of money. Were you aware that the American Red Cross’s Director get somewhere in the ball park of $500,000 per year. And that’s just the director.

    Also, it was reported a few days ago that American’s have donated close to 8 Million to Haiti and of that 2 Mil was donated to Wyclef’s Yele. Then the next day TSG drops this thing about his foundations taxes. Don’t you find that interesting?

    His NGO collects 25% of the donations to his homeland and then the powers that be go and investigate him and start drama to STOP people from donating money to HIS foundation in particular. Why?

    Cuz if that shit kept going like that the other NGO’s who collect money and then funnel that money back into various corp’s interest by purchasing the AID, supplies and water needed to help people in crisis would be losing 25% of their 100% they usually get to line the pockets of these corp interest.

    TheSmokingGun doesn’t give a fuck about Haiti and neither do the people who set up these other NGOs they are supposed non-profit but believe you mean muthafucks be profit a whole lot off this type of shit!

    Look back to Katrina, Americans donated something around 6 Billion to help but today NO is still fucked up. Hmm…..
