‘It’s something that should’ve been prevented and could’ve been prevented’
It’s been three years since the Flint, Michigan water crisis began. Even the most vocal critics of how the situation was handled didn’t seem to have much of an impact. With the GOP voting to end the investigation into the disaster, it’s not difficult to see how little support there is.
As a Detroit native, Big Sean felt close to the issue and hasn’t just spoken about it. He’s been on the ground helping people since early on in the disaster. He’s not new to taking on causes, the Sean Anderson Foundation has seen him fund a lot of projects.
He spoke to Trevor Noah on The Daily Show about how the Foundation raised funds to get water and necessary basics to residents of Flint. He revealed his mother had been diagnosed with Lead Poisoning which made the cause personal for him.
