(Photos) Hot 97 Teams Up With Drake & OVO To Give Teen Who Was Set On Fire By “Friends” A Merry Christmas

Deandre x Hot 97

Earlier this year, a 13-year-old Long Island teen by the name of Deandre Bloomfield was lured to the house of an alleged “friend,” and ultimately set on fire, suffering burns of the second and third degree all over his body. Having one leg longer than the other, Deandre has long been the victim of bullying, and this incident finally has others paying attention. It’s sad it took this long!

According to Deandre‘s mother, the boy sprayed cologne on Deandre and then lit matches until he caught on fire. He tried to run, but because of the aforementioned disability, he was unsuccessful. The worst part? The mother and sister of the boy were present and tried to cover up the incident for TWO hours before calling police, and they’re still trying to say it was all an accident. Crazy!

Touched by the story, Hot 97‘s Ebro In The Morning teamed up with Drake and OVO, and made sure that despite all of the hardships, Deandre could still have a merry Christmas. Listen to Ebro‘s call to Deandre below, and get a closer look at some of his gifts! Our prayers are with him and his family.

Kat Stacks is a name we [thankfully] haven’t heard in some time, but we suddenly found her back in the headlines this week when she decided to come for Love & Hip-Hop’s newest star, Cardi B. The former queen of Worldstar was upset that Cardi was coming for her “hoe” title that she wears proudly, and even proclaimed that she’s more of a “real hoe” than Cardi will ever be because she actually has 3 prostitution charges in three different states. Such an accolade.
