Jackson said: “I don’t know if you guys have been to school before, but I know I’ve been to school, and we used to have raffles all the time, where you get a ticket – it might be a physical ticket – but you put in $5, $2, whatever and you get a prize.”
In the live video, Jackson claimed the cost of entering the raffle would go towards the prize itself and, if there was any leftover money, it would go towards a follow-up giveaway “soon”.
She continued: “I do not need money,” adding, “Me personally, I do not need money. And I’m not saying this like, in a bragging way or anything … I’m just letting you guys know I do not personally need money, like, I am very fine in my life. I don’t need money.”
But, it seems that some were left unconvinced by her explanation of the raffle’s funding.
One person suggested: “If you ‘don’t need the money’ why not you just give the MacBook away.”
Another said: “‘The money goes towards the prize’… that’s not how raffles work mama.”
