People around the world have taken to social media to report the brazen armed robbery of a Brooklyn bishop delivering a sermon during a livestream. Others have expressed their displeasure, while others have questioned why the clergyman was wearing expensive jewelry at the time. Rapper 50 Cent has shared his own opinion on many topics, from politics to tabloid propaganda.
The TV executive writes that while the church is in service, the people returning in New York are robbing the church.
At around 9:30 a.m., three armed men stormed into the church service wearing masks and hoodies. The perpetrators took cash from Bishop Lamor Whitehead, his wife, and other churchgoers, according to police.
Whitehead, who has since commented on the incident on social media, has offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspects. According to the New York Daily News, Bishop Lamor Whitehead returned to his church dressed in a Balenciaga and Gucci suit and loafers.
Whitehead told his concerned parishioners that he will wear my Gucci. Because God says, You are my chosen vessel. He did not warn me that I can't wear what I want to wear.
Why does he have to wear Gucci? while imitating his opponents. Because I want to. It is my civil right to wear what I want to wear We are a church of wealth. Were not a church of poverty.
No suspects have been apprehended, and the investigation is still ongoing.
