Billionaire Mark Cuban has called out left-wing pop star John Legend for urging people to prioritize political donations over charitable giving to food banks and shelters ahead of the Georgia Senate runoff elections.
“Come on John,” Cuban tweeted. “There is a point of diminishing returns on political ad spend, there are no diminished returns when it comes to feeding the hungry.”
Mark Cuban, who owns the Dallas Mavericks basketball team and a supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2016, tweeted Thursday that people who are considering donating to candidates in the Georgia Senate runoff elections ought to re-consider and donate to local food banks and other charities helping those in need. “Let’s put Americans in need above Politics,” he wrote.
John Legend disagreed, saying that “Senate flipping would be far more impactful than a food bank donation.” The pop star is a major Democrat activist who initially supported Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign
