T.I. Calls Out Joel Osteen for Not Initially Opening Church to Hurricane Harvey Victims

Brother T.I.P has been one of the few brothers in the entertainment business that has been vocal when it comes to the black community. He’s attended several marches, spoken out on social media and even included powerful messages in his music videos.

Today on his instagram he called out Joel Osteen who has a mega church in houston. Joel Osteen went viral recently for locked his church doors during the hurricane Harvey flood.

This is why people (like me) don't trust the mega churches. How can someone (especially a so called man of God) make 70+Ms a yr TAX FREE from citizens of a city that's now in distress & in dyer need of food water & shelter NOT OPEN THE DOORS OF GODs HOUSE (supposedly) to help those in need? @joelosteen YOU SIR ARE A FRAUD!!!! Ministers,preachers,pastors,reverends are all supposed to be SERVANTS sent here to do the LORDS work. Not just sitting back in comfort watching as satin has his way!!!! FOH!!! We CANNOT AFFORD to continue to just go & give our money away to people who pose as "Preachers" or their BIG lavish MEGA CHURCHES WITHOUT HOLDING THEM ACCOUNTABLE WHEN WE NEED THEM!!!!! Tithing is selfless acts of kindness & what you do for OTHERS. Stop giving y'all money to these 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡LIKE THEY GON TURN YOUR BREAD OVER TO GOD!!!! Nigga please 🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽🖕🏽

Not only did the brother call out the Pastor, he put his money where his mouth is and joined Kevin Hart’s Hurricane Harvey challenge putting money up donating to a helping organization.

Of course another thing I love about brother T.I is the fact that he’s one of few as well that’s not afraid to meet with Minister Louis Farrakhan and make it known. The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan recently spoke in Atlanta at the family retreat and met with T.I while he was out there.


  1. All praises to Allah for T.I. Stepping up and being an example for the people in Houston and in the community. We need more brothers and sisters like him, being in an army of Gods is a blessing.

  2. Yea farrakhan and the noi has resources also. Yall can donate baby formula. Canned goods. Cleaned bottled drinking water n other commodities. Joel Oltseen eventually opened his church . so don’t blast joel osteen. if the noi aint doing nothing as an organization. Not individual effort n initiative. So till i hear or see a post by the minister give orders to go help yall shouldn’t blast other Theologians.

  3. Mr. Farrakhan is a killer. He should be doing life in prison right now.Thats why his movement is so unpopular now.They have no respect in the hood.The black muslims are a scary group of killers of black people.They have been killing black people since 1963.
