Pitbull – a rapper also known as “Mr. Worldwide” to his fans – is gaining plenty of praise online. According to the New York Daily News, Pitbull is helping people suffering from cancer in Puerto Rico get out of the storm-ravaged land in order to get treatment in the U.S. by sending his own private plane to Puerto Rico. Armando Christian Perez – Pitbull’s real name – was thanked by Jenniffer Gonzalez on Twitter on Tuesday. Jenniffer is described on Twitter as a “Congresswoman for Puerto Rico,” with her additional Twitter account “Rep Jenniffer” being the “official account for the Congresswoman of Puerto Rico representing 3.4 million U.S. citizens in Congress.” The former Speaker of the House is also listed as the GOP state chairman and statehood leader, and includes the famous quote on her Twitter page about misbehaving women: “Women who behave rarely make history.”
The actual tweet wherein Jenniffer directly tweeted Pitbull was uncovered by the Twitter pages “Pitbull Updates” and “Pitbull 24/7,” and can be seen below. The New York Daily News translated the tweet from Spanish as follows.
“Thank you @pitbull for lending your private plane to move cancer patients from PR to USA so that they can get chemo.”
