Mac Miller’s Family Issues Statement About Fake Memorial Events
by Lupe LLerenas
Since Mac Miller’s passing in September, his close friends and family have joined together to give fans “A Celebration Of Life” benefit concert.
However, this is not the only memorial event being held for the late-great Pittsburgh rapper.
Several “fraudulent” fundraising events have surfaced claiming to have ties with the fallen rapper, forcing the Miller’s family to issue a public statement about these events, according to Complex.
“The family of Malcolm McCormick, known best to the world as Mac Miller, has become aware of a number of fraudulent events recently announced under the guise of fundraising for causes on his behalf,” a family friend shared on Wednesday (October 10). “It should be known that the only event sanctioned by his family and contributing to The Mac Miller Circles Fund is the Mac Miller: A Celebration Of Life event taking place in Los Angeles on October 31. While the intent of further celebrating Malcolm’s life through these various efforts is appreciated, it is important that it be known to paying fans which of these are official or not.”
The family suggests that fans stay up to date with any upcoming sanctioned events on Mac Miller’s Circles Fund website.
