Wyclef Jean accused of mis-spending charity money meant for victims of Haiti earthquake
Jean tells the Associated Press that the allegations are bogus. "It's starting to just be ridiculous," he says. "People on the Internet are asking: 'What is it about this guy that y'all really don't like?'"
He suggests that the media should direct its attention elsewhere. "There are a lot of foul things going on on the ground in Haiti. The aid money promised, the earthquake relief, the idea of where are we going as a nation, the amount of money disbursed to big organizations, and the New York Post has mentioned nothing of that."
He notes that a large bulk of donations received immediately after the quake were held for future use in 2011 and onward, so that they wouldn't run out once donations died down.
