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.
