Another tweet read: “When [Black Lives Matter] needed infrastructure money for the many chapters that we’re growing like beautiful dandelions, Carters wrote a huge check.”
She continued: “... and more stuff, too much to list actually, that they always insist folk keep quiet.”
Hampton wrote that the alleged donations were important when protesters were being held on exorbitant bail.
Hampton said Jay and Beyoncé’s contributions were “too much list.”
Hampton's tweets have since been deleted, but were screen grabbed by Complex.
