Lil Durk’s Neighborhood Heroes Foundation organized a “Dinner with Durk” at Gibson’s steakhouse in Chicago on Tuesday.
Durk hosted the event that was attended by 5 of nine Chicago mayoral candidates. Insiders say Durk has secretly endorsed Mayor Lori Lightfoot for re-election.
Candidates Ja’Mal Green, Kam Buckner, Brandon Johnson and Roderick Sawyer also attended the event, along with 30 high schoolers.
Thrilled to spend last night with @lildurk and his Neighborhood Heroes Foundation. I’m so inspired by the work they do to lift up our communities and invest in our youth across Chicago. pic.twitter.com/Q8oEIFAyA2

Chicago residents were disappointed that Lightfoot attended an event hosted by a known gang member who has boasted about killing his “opps” in his “music.”
One person wrote: “Taking a pic with someone who is promoting violence in the city that your ‘trying’ to stop [laughing crying emoji].”
Another person tweeted @ Lightfoot: “So the Black Disciples support you?”
A couple of things a) have you ever listened to his music? He outright encourages the gang violence you are supposed to be stopping (you get an F for that assignment)
b) Jesus how bad are your internals with African Americans?
c) VOTE FOR VALLAS

Here you are with a murderer who makes his money promoting a gang lifestyle of killing and drugs. This lifestyle choice keeps the black community from succeeding as a whole. For every one lildurk there’s 1000s of lives wasted. Jail or early death. Do better @chicagosmayor
