Comedian Michael Blackson sparked outrage when he asked his fans to Cash app him money to help pay fellow comedian AJ Johnson's funeral expenses.

Johnson, 55, apparently suffered a heart attack in a store and died earlier this month.

His body lay in a morgue for weeks until the coroner used his dental records to identify him and contacted his family.

In a post on social media, Blackson said he received a call from Johnson's former management and his wife.

He said Johnson's wife -- who was separated from him for years -- was "in tears".

"Apparently no one has heard from AJ for about a couple of weeks," Blackson wrote.

"Get to find out he had a heart attack in some store on Sept. 6th and was taken to the hospital where he died a day later [shaking my head]. He had no identification on him and I'm shocked no one from the [Los Angeles] hospital recognized him to tell the world."

Blackson went on to say Johnson "left this world with absolutely nothing".

It's unclear how Blackson knew Johnson's financial status at the time of his death. He readily admitted that neither Johnson's former manager or wife had heard from him in years.

Then Blackson provided his Cash app ID, a mobile payment app, and asked his followers to send him money. He wrote: "at the end of the day I'll match it and send to his family to bury him. Thanks."

However, his followers accused Blackson of pulling a "scam" and they wondered why celebs who display material wealth on social media while asking fans to send them money.

One Rhymeswithsnitch commenter wrote:

"Do these celebrities realize that most black folks are BROKE due to the unemployment of the pandemic? How about they budget THEIR money, and go a week without a $400k watch and contribute their own damn money! Folks got their own bills and loved ones to care for and bury. Y'all niggas (in Hollywood) love bragging on social media about what y'all got, so put your money where your mouth is and give that good brother a NICE send-off!"

Another reader wrote:

"MBlackstone was just on Cribs stunting. Just pay for the funeral already."

And a third person wrote:

"Everyday people already contribute by supporting these celebrities so it's only fair these celebrities contribute by supporting their own."

The "Tap In" rapper says she was given the chance to make big money, but the offer required her to "violate" her values and integrity.

"When you are a young woman in L.A., sometimes you're put in situations that can help you financially but will take a jab at your soul, your body. I remember basically just having the opportunity to get some money, but in doing so I would have violated my morals and my values. I was broke but I was like, I will never do anything to disrespect myself... no matter how desperate I get."

Harden denied sending the cash after rapper 50 Cent repeated the rumor on social media.

Harden fired off a response on Instagram, writing:

"I'm tired of people creating these false ass stories knowing I really don't speak on bullsh*t. Leave me out of all the weird sh*t. Sh*t trash. Back to my real life.

"People really on here just making sh*t up for clout. I really stay out the way. Cashapp 100K? Beat it."

The rapper reportedly rejected the promiscuous NBA superstar's generous offer of $100K for a date.

She told Teen Vogue: "That's a story within itself, but I think it was a moment where I was like, 'It's OK. You'll eventually get what you want out of life as long as you're praying and working hard.'"

Saweetie, 27, recently split from Migos star Quavo, 29, earlier this year after an embarrassing viral video showed her fighting with the promiscuous rapper in an elevator.

Now she's put her love life on the shelf to focus on her music and improving herself for a real man.

Saweetie said she is optimistic about the future after settling into a new home -- by herself.

"I just got a new place. I feel refreshed. I feel like it’s a new chapter. I just want to be a good person and help people while being a pretty a** b**ch," she said.

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion have teamed up with Ca$h App to give away $1 million in Twitter's biggest-ever cash prize.

The rap duo, who recently topped the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart with their new single "WAP," announced the giveaway on Wednesday, Aug. 19.

The ladies asked their Twitter followers to post their #Cashtags to get part of the $1 million, which is exclusively for women.

"To all everyone supporting #WAP we see you!! we're partnering with Twitter and Cash App to celebrate all the powerful women out there by giving away a total of $1 million dollars," Megan said.

Women who tweet #WAPParty along with their $Cashtag will have a chance to receive a portion of the money through Cash App.

Fans who received cash in $500 increments thanked Cardi and Megan on Twitter.com.

Cardi and Megan have come under fire over the raunchy track and its provocative video, featuring an array of famous faces including Normani, Rosalia, Rubi Rose, Sukihana, Mulatto, and Kylie Jenner playing fancy whores in a virtual mansion that features butt sculptures, breast fountains, tigers, snakes and leopards.

Although some have slammed it as degrading for sexualizing women, the stars insist the hedonistic song promotes female empowerment.
