A hunger relief charity rejected a $200,000 donation from gang-affiliated ex-convict Tekashi 6ix9ine, saying they didn't want to be associated with his kind.

The "Fefe" star, who is currently under house arrest as part of his sentence for gang-related charges, earned a small fortune from merchandise he promoted on Instagram last week.

He sent a check for $200,000 to No Kid Hungry, an organization that provides aid to struggling families across America. But organization officials turned down the check once they learned who the rapper was.

The group announced they did not want to be associated with Tekashi, real name Daniel Hernandez.

"We are grateful for Mr. Hernandez's generous offer to donate to No Kid Hungry but we have informed his representatives that we have declined this donation," read a statement issued by the non-profit, obtained by TMZ.

"As a child-focused campaign, it is our policy to decline funding from donors whose activities do not align with our mission and values."

Tekashi, who has a long rap sheet, was convicted on charges of racketeering, firearms offenses, and drug trafficking in New York last year. In 2015, he pleaded guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance.

Blasting the news online, the rapper fumed, "@nokidhungry rather take food out the mouth of these innocent children I never seen something so cruel."

Police were forced to find a new hideout for Tekashi after a neighbor leaked the location of his Long Island safe house on the internet. Then someone leaked the location of his second safe house on the internet on Tuesday.

Tekashi69 has a target on his back after he snitched on gang associates in exchange for shaving years off his prison time.
