Biden-boosting influencer ‘Brooklyn Dad’ slammed for taking PAC money

NEW YORK POST — A Joe Biden-boosting social media influencer known as “Brooklyn Dad Defiant” came under fire Wednesday for reportedly failing to disclose that he accepted tens of thousands of dollars from a Democratic political action committee.

Majid Padellan, who runs the nearly 900,000-follower-strong Twitter account — and has been slammed previously for urging Bernie Sanders to drop out of the 2020 presidential race — allegedly accepted more than $57,000 from a pro-Biden PAC, Really American, last year, according to Refinery29.com, which cited tweets circulating Tuesday.

In his Twitter bio, Padellan says he’s a senior adviser to the PAC — but followers slammed him for failing to admit he allegedly got paid to post pro-Biden opinions and theories, according to the outlet.

“Brooklyn Dad being a paid Dem op is pretty unsurprising, it absolutely does pay to have/promote sh–ty political opinions in America,” one user tweeted.

  2. >… slammed for taking PAC money

    I don’t get the controversy; why is he obligated to disclose the fact he got paid for his shilling? — having run across his tweets a few times, which are generally of the deranged libtard variety, it seems fair he gets paid for putting out that shit — I mean he deserves it.

    >900,000 followers ?

    So what? — followers are nothing; it doesn’t cost a fucking cent to follow someone on Twatter — if you want to be astounded at something, be astounded at how much money is raised for some of these people — e.g. $530k for the black woman (Darnella Frazier) who allegedly filmed the cops arresting (not ‘murdering’) George Floyd — and check out the title they gave her GoFundMe page: The OFFICIAL Peace and Healing for Darnella Fund — and it’s still open/they’re still accepting donations.
