Wells Fargo and the APD responds to Blac Youngsta’s accusations of being racially profiled

(Last Updated On: January 12, 2016)

Blac Youngsta, the rapper who made headlines last week for withdrawing $200,000 from Wells Fargo and later being stopped by the Atlanta Police Department.

Blac Youngsta posted on his social media accounts and conducted interview of how the police was called on him after he withdrew money from a Buckhead Wells Fargo at 3235 Peachtree Road NE.  “I come out the bank, I see the police, I’m walking to my car, I see one of them point to my bag like ‘him.’ They come bumrushing me at the car, put me on the ground.”

His story of events caused a lot of controversy among the APD and Wells Fargo.  Now the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that a spokesperson for Wells Fargo, Crystal I. Drake, addressing Blac’s statements, ““Mr. Benson was not a party to the fraudulent incident,” Drake said in a statement. Drake would not say, however, if any members of Benson’s group had accounts with the bank or had made withdrawals, saying she could not discuss customer transactions.

While also adding, “Benson doesn’t have an account with Wells Fargo, wasn’t even in the bank and didn’t make a withdrawal.”
