Tyrone Hankerson, Jr. was once a student employee of the Howard University Financial Aid Office, but now he’s a viral superstar!
Hankerson ALLEGEDLY stole $429,000 from the HBCU and spent it on things like fur coats and Gucci bags and now he’s being revered and praised as a“Finesse God” for pocketing money from his own community.
Details + video below…
As discussed in the video above, several financial aid employees at Howard University have been accused of stiffing students out of almost a million dollars in financial aid funds.
The news was all conjecture and brewing tea until Howard President Wayne A.I. Fredrick released a statement admitting that he was alerted of the department’s misappropriation of funds back in December 2016, noting that that six people were fired for it last September.
While the President didn’t name names, it was soon revealed that Brian Johnson, an associate director of the department, and student-employee Tyrone Hankerson Jr, were the two biggest beneficiaries of scandal.
I still can’t get over the fact how Tyrone Hankerson was able to steal $430K from his fellow Howard University students for over a 3 year period. This was definitely an inside job with the higher-ups because stealing from your own is anti-Black as fuck.
