In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, many large scale events have been canceled. Ultra and SXSW festivals are no longer taking place, musicians like Pearl Jam and Billie Eilish have postponed tours, and the governor of California recently placed a ban on events exceeding a 250 capacity. While the event cancelations are to protect public health, many who work in the service industry are seeing a cut in hours and pay. But Lil Nas X and Megan Thee Stallion are offering financial support.
Lil Nas X and Megan Thee Stallion both took to Twitter to express their condolences to those are financially struggling after the virus’ outbreak. In order to assist, both musicians are graciously offering to pay fans’ bills.
Lil Nas told fans to give him their Cash App account so he could send them money for food. “gonna send some of u some money to go get some food then stay inside,” he wrote.
