Rodney King's Family Needs Your Money... *Side eye*
I get sick to my gat damn stomach with black folk doing what they want to do with theirs while they're alive and then leaving the burden on their already broke a$$ family members to bury their a$$es after they're dead.
Bye! Rodney King got $3.8 million dollars from the City of L.A. after they beat the hell out of him, and if he didn't put up $5,000 to put him in the ground, put him in a box and let the family bury him upon the forest.
According to TMZ:
The family has now issued a statement, through their rep, Kali Bowyer, asking people to contribute to a memorial fund established "for those who wish to contribute to the King family."
King's 3 adult daughters, along with other family members, are desperately trying to come up with the cash ... but Bowyer tells us, "They need the money."
King is scheduled to be laid to rest on June 30.
As far as the mystery surrounding Rodney's death, the family says, "[We are] looking forward to a swift investigation into the death of our father, as well as we put our faith in the authorities responsible for handling the matter."
