Mark Cuban Slams John Legend for Saying Political Donations Are More Important Than Charity Donations

Billionaire Mark Cuban has called out left-wing pop star John Legend for urging people to prioritize political donations over charitable donations to food banks and shelters. Legend’s plea comes ahead of the Georgia Senate runoff elections.

“Come on John,” Cuban tweeted. “There is a point of diminishing returns on political ad spend, there are no diminished returns when it comes to feeding the hungry.”

Mark Cuban, who owns the Dallas Mavericks basketball team and was a supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2016, tweeted that people who are considering donating to candidates in the Georgia Senate runoff elections should re-consider and donate to local food banks and other charities helping those in need. “Let’s put Americans in need above Politics,” he wrote.

John Legend disagreed, saying that “Senate flipping would be far more impactful than a food bank donation.” The pop star is a major Democrat activist who initially supported Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign before supporting Biden after Warren dropped out of the running.

Cuban criticized Legend for his comments, sarcastically saying that one political party “will solve all our problems!”

Earlier this year, Cuban told SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday host Joel Pollak that Americans need to come together to transcend partisan politics in responding to the coronavirus outbreak.

In the past, Cuban has entertained the idea of running for president but has yet to formally enter the political arena. In addition to owning the Dallas Mavericks, he has invested in numerous entertainment venturers, including 2929 Entertainment and the long-running ABC reality series Shark Tank, which he stars in.

The Georgia runoff elections, set for January 5, are among the most watched in the country. They could flip the Senate in favor of Democrats. Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock are looking to replace the seats of incumbent Republican Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler.

 

Do you agree with Cuban or Legend? What is more beneficial – political donations or charity donations?

  1. Legend is dead wrong. He should know better. Hope his ratings go thru the cellar. I can not believe that people can be so stupid when the need to help people is starring you right in the face.

  2. Thanks to Mark Urban for thinking of those in need before donating to buy more corruption.John Legend,and that POS that he’s married to are not worth the salt they eat.!!

    • I agree, thank you Mark for being the adult. Legend and his slutty wife are disgusting unintelligent doofs. Politics will change people who are hungry are our brothers and sisters.

    • I agree with Hazel!
      Both of them constantlyh want to be in the spotlight
      he is HARDLY sexy and we do not need to see photos of her with her still born child

      • Too bad they are followers of the True M.aster. He days faith and hope are important but of all these charity is the most important. Charity being the pure love of Christ. Money for politics is greed. The pure love of it. Those found of this will be destroyed at his coming.

    • Thank you, Mark Cuban for calling out leftist legend! He’s irrelevant and nobody cares what he or his wife have to say anyway! Please go to some other country we would welcome you taking your sorry a** elsewhere! Obviously he doesn’t care about anyone else but himself! You are a disgrace!

  3. Legend is the reason I no longer watch THE VOICE!!!!!

  4. We should donate to a cause to jail all pedophiles like him and his wife who spent a lot of time with Jeff Ebstein

  5. You need not to buy anything from John and his wife.With everyone stop buying things from them and watching voice they will see how it is.

  6. Who is legend? Assuming he is a real person, why would I listen to anything he wants to say?

  7. CUBAN DESERVES A BULLET.

  8. Fuck both of these pompous assholes. Let’s see what these commie sympathizers do when China Joe and his comrades come for their property.

  9. What is the difference one feeds the hungry stomach and the other the hungry wallet. They are both charity cases. In America if you want to work there is always work to find. Most people are poor by choice. Your choice to be a drunk, your choice to be addicted in any form. Only NOT by choice are you born male or female. At the age that you can think and are ready, you are free to make the choice to become another sex. Bad, good and wrong…it is the individuals choice and in America you have that freedom of choice. Chew on that for awhile. What if you were born in a country that is strict Islam.

  10. There are wealthy people on both sides of the two issues that can afford to support the cause of their choice. Why should people be arguing and name-calling about this? Donate to both or either. Your choice! If the Republican Senate does stay in the majority, they will hamstring Biden just like they did Obama and he won’t be able to help anyone! The fact that there are hungry and homeless people out there is unthinkable. We must also do what we can to make sure they have what they need. America has enough Billionaires and Millionaires to make sure both needs are met.

  11. I agree, Vera. A continuing Republican Senate will irreparably harm more people than we can take of with our donations. Most of these other commenters are ignorant. If you can afford it, contribute to both!
