T-Hood, the sugary sweet rapper who filmed '90s actress Maia Campbell begging for money at a Stone Mountain, Ga. gas station over the weekend, defended his actions in an Instagram video this morning.
The 40-year-old actress is best known for her role on LL Cool J's '90s television sitcom, 'In the House'. She was last seen on Queen Latifah's Centric reality show, 'From the Bottom Up', which aired last November.
Before that, Campbell made headlines for multiple arrests stemming from public intoxication, theft, and disorderly conduct charges.
T-Hood, who is more known for his gas station videos than his music, uploaded the shocking video of Campbell to his Instagram.com page @hatershatethood. He has since taken his page private, but not before responding to the "black hypocrites" who criticized him for exploiting the mentally ill actress.
He responded to rapper/actor LL Cool J's plea for Maia's contact info so he could possibly help her (as others have tried to help her in the past).
T-Hood replied to Cool J:
"I can tell you exactly where she at bro. I tried to help her for a long time but she doesn't want the help. If you try to take her away from that block she will attempt to fight you. She been on Redan (Road) for a few years. I never meant for the video to go crazy like that. She a sweet girl just very out her mind on drugs. I never gave her any drugs or nothing I just recorded her cause she asked me too. If you would like to find her hit my phone. [number redacted]."
T-Hood later wrote that the actor deleted his post from his page. "Let's see if LL actually her," he wrote before defending himself some more. "I'm far from a bad person I have provided plenty for her."
Here is T-Hood giving Campbell a couple of dollars for pumping gas into his SUV.
