On December 2, a 13-year-old Long Island teen by the name of Deandre Bloomfield was lured to the house of an alleged “friend,” and ultimately set on fire, suffering second and third degree burns all over his body. Deandre has long been subjected to bullying before because one of his legs is longer than the other and unfortunately it too this incident for people to recognize how bad it was.
According to Deandre‘s mother, the boy sprayed cologne on Deandre and then lit matches until he caught on fire. He tried to run, but because of the aforesaid disability, he was unsuccessful. The incident went from bad to worse when the mother and the sister of the boy tried to cover up the incident for 2 hours before finally calling police. They haven’t apologized and are still trying to say it was all an accident. Ridiculous!
Naturally moved by this incident, Hot 97‘s Ebro In The Morning teamed up with Drake and OVO, and made sure Deandre could still have a merry Christmas, despite the hardships. Listen to Ebro‘s call to Deandre below, as well as the gifts he received! Our prayers are with him and his family.
