Tony Yayo Launches Tour To Promote Teen Literacy, Mother Protests


Tony Yayo
is kicking off a Community Tour for the non-profit "The Book Bank Foundation" with it's founder Glen Toby today. The tour is part of Yayo's sentence after he pleaded guilty in February to being involved in the assault of the 14-year-old son of music executive Jimmy "Henchmen" Rosemond. The mother of the child involved is now speaking out stating "Shame on you Glenn Toby for letting Marvin Bernard's punishment look like willful charity," Reed said in a statement addressing the Book Bank Foundation's founder. "Crimes against children should never be legitimized just because a person is an entertainer. A public apology is appropriate at this time, not only from Tony Yayo but from 50 Cent for denying this event ever happened." She plans to protest the entire campaign. Tony Yayo was sentenced to 150 hour's of community service for his role, while his associate Lowell Fletcher admitted that he "saw a young boy wearing a Czar Entertainment T-shirt" and proceeded to slap the boy across the face and grab at his shirt." Fletcher pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child and was sentenced to nine months in prison.
