Fat Joe says her famous friends are helping to make sure the victims of this historically deadly Bronx apartment fire are not left behind – but adds that it will take more than celebrities to get the job done.
Joey Crack joined us Wednesday on “TMZ Live” and told us what inspired him to team up with the Mayor of New York. Eric adams to help survivors and those who lost loved ones and property in the deadly fire.
As we reported … hell engulfed a 19-story apartment building in the Bronx, killing 17 people – including 8 children – the deadliest fire in the city for more than 30 years.
Fat Joe says most of the people living in the building are immigrants and are now homeless amid the freezing winter temperatures. He used his contacts to help start the fundraiser, shouting out the donations they have already received from Jay Z, DJ Khaled, LL Cool J, Nas and former CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey … among others.
It’s the first big crisis for Adams, who took office on January 1, and Fat Joe tells us why the new mayor can cut back on political bureaucracy to make a difference here.
He also explains how ordinary people can help too – fatjoe.me/donatebronx – and says 100 percent of donations go to hotel rooms, new homes and funerals.
