Maasai Mohandas Singleton, son of acclaimed director John Singleton (Boyz N the Hood), recently launched a GoFundMe page to finance his education after it appears his dad cut him off. Maasai is a senior in the University of Southern California’s Writing for Screen and Television program.
According to BET, on the crowd-sourcing platform, Maasai explains that his dad recently told him that he would not be paying for his tuition despite the fact that he’s a senior and has only 20 units left to graduate. “The timing of this information is such that I’m not able to apply for many financial aid options that would otherwise be available,” Maasai explains.
No word from John Singleton as of yet. If you want to support Maasai, you can do so here.
