The Minnesota Freedom Fund continues to use its celebrity-infused $40 million cash windfall to bail out violent and potentially dangerous people, several of whom have been charged with new crimes, including murder, sex offenses and serious assaults while out on bail in the Twin Cities.

The nonprofit bail fund was founded in 2016 but gained notoriety during the protests and riots that followed the death of George Floyd while in the custody of Minneapolis police on May 25, 2020.

In the days and weeks that followed Floyd’s death, protests, disturbances, fires and riots broke out across the metro causing hundreds of millions of dollars in property damage.

The Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) vowed at the time to bail out any protesters arrested, which spurred a flurry of celebrity donations and social media promotions by the likes of Vice President Kamala Harris, Justin Timberlake, Steve Carell, Seth Rogen and Chrissy Teigen. The fund initially took in about $30 million in a matter of weeks following the celebrity promoted tweets.
