Philando Castile's Mom Has THIS Response to Diamond Reynold's $56k GoFundMe

Unfortunately, there are some people who try to take advantage of the kindness and compassion people have. This is especially horrible during times of tragedy. Valerie Castile, mother of Philando Castile who was shot by Minnesota Police during a routine traffic stop, is furious that people are cashing in on her son’s death.

According to gofundme.com, there are several GoFundMe and other fundraising accounts that are claiming to raise money for Castile’s family. However, Castile says there is only one account that is going toward supporting Philando Castile’s actual family.

Mad World News suggests that Castile may even be angry with Diamond “Lavish” Reynolds, who was in the car with her daughter at the time Philando Castile was shot, for making money off the situation.

“I am so disgusted!! People are trying to capitalise on my sons tragedy for personal gain through GoFundMe!!! 1st of all Philando Castile does not have children nor a fiancee, the account for the Philando Castile Family is through his Sister's account Allysza Castile, so Please, if you want to donate go to that account the rest are bogus! ! Shame on You!!!”

Early news reports described Reynolds as Philando Castile’s fiance. According to gofraudme.com, a Go Fund Me account set up by a friend of Reynolds to raise money for Reynolds and her daughter originally said that she was Philando Castile’s fiance. It now says “boyfriend.” Allysza Castile’s GoFundMe page lists Reynolds as a fiance, but if you check out her Facebook page it seems like there is some tension there.

“My brother don't have kids my brother ain't got no wife,” she wrote in a July 12 post.
