Meek Mill got trolled on social media after a video from his Instagram Story received the viral treatment! The clip featured the rapper giving kids in Atlanta selling water $20, and telling them to ‘split’ the money.
Meek Mill had people on social media talking after a clip from his December 6 Instagram Story went viral. In the video, the rapper, 33, captured a group of kids asking him to buy the water that they were selling. It wasn’t immediately clear if Meek actually purchased anything, but it seemed that he gave the kids $20, as he says in the video below. However, that isn’t what caused the clip to gain the attention of social media users.

After giving the kids $20, Meek could be heard saying that they should “split” the money amongst themselves! Naturally, a number of people online took notice of Meek’s words, and the rapper got trolled pretty harshly for it. “Meek Mill is driving around Atlanta in a 400k car, Saw a few kids hustling waters and gave them 20 dollars and told them to split it. 6-8 kids splitting 20 dollars,” one person said on Twitter, re-posting the clip above. But that wasn’t all.
Throughout the comments of the clip were a slew of people trolling Meek for only giving the group of youngsters $20 and then telling them to divvy it up amongst each other. “The new 20 Dollar bill,” another Twitter user wrote alongside an image of a $20 bill with Meek’s face on it. Another person wrote “Meek IG post the next day” with a a photo of the rapper resting his head on a stacks of dollar bills. For his part, Meek seemingly threw some shade back at the people who were making jokes about him.
“They be having more money than some of y’all,” he began his response on Instagram. “I can’t relate to the internet I just post…make sure y’all go help them kids out if y’all concerned!” Meek also shared a response on Twitter, saying that the kids “appreciated” the gesture, even if some on social media didn’t agree. The attention on Meek’s post has lessened since yesterday, but it’s clear that the video caused quite a stir!
