As Puerto Rico continues to struggle to get back on its feet after Hurricane Maria devastated the island, René Pérez, aka Residente, is criticizing the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for hurting recovery efforts. During his tour, Residente collected supplies to aid those back on the island. With the help of the Chilean government, the tools made their way onto San Juan, where he says FEMA intercepted. On Wednesday, he accused the agency of storing the supplies in what appears to be in a warehouse instead of letting it go toward the intended recipients.
Residente didn’t provide too many details, but he promised to do everything in his power to get his fellow Puerto Ricans the supplies they need. At the very least, the tweets forced Gov. Ricardo Rosselló to comment on the situation. “Director Puertos @omarjmarrero is investigating the location of the supplies and is in contact with the honorary consul. Thanks @Residente and the people of Chile,” he tweeted. Residente simply replied with a praying hand emoji.
