Rapper DaBaby is trending on Twitter for turning down two children who tried to sell him a box of candy for $200. The rapper shared a video of himself buying candy from two teens who claimed that they were trying to raise money. The internet is divided over the rapper's actions for turning down the children. While some called him 'corny' and 'lame' for hassling two kids who were trying to raise money, some lauded him for 'teaching those kids a lesson'.

In the video, the rapper was seen jumping out of his sprinter van to suprise the two children who were outside selling two boxes of candies. “What you want for the box?” asked DaBaby. “$200,” one of the kids said. The rapper then goes on to ask the kids how much one candy costs and how many candies are there in the box. One of the kids said he charges $2 for one pack of Gushers. DaBaby then pointed that the packaging says there’s 34 packs of Gushers per box. He asked, "What’s $34 multiplied by two, my boy?It ain’t $200! It’s not even $100. It’s $68.” In the end, the rapper gave $2 and said, "You gotta use your head, you tried to play me. I was gonna bless you anyway. You would have gotten the $200 but now you got $2. Y’all be good.”
