Country star Kid Rock called Marine veteran Daniel Penny a “hero,” donating thousands to the campaign for the veteran/24-year-old college student accused of killing Jordan Neely.
The 52-year-old singer —born Robert Ritchie — joined some 50,000 people who have donated to the GiveSendGo campaign that is listed as “Daniel Penny’s Legal Defense Fund.” As of this publication, the online fundraiser has surpassed $2.5 million.
Ritchie is listed in the “Top Donations” section, which shows that he donated “5,000.” His post read, “Mr. Penny is a hero. Alvin Bragg is a POS. Kid Rock.” Bragg is the Manhattan district attorney who has charged Penny with second-degree manslaughter, the Daily Mail noted.
