No Landlord Would Accept Ex-Convict Matthew Charles Despite Rent Payment Offer From Kim Kardashian

An indication of serious flaws in the US property market has become vividly visible as ex-convict Matthew Charles continue being homeless, because no landlord in his home state of Tennessee would accept him despite an offer from the wealthy Kim Kardashian to pay his rent in advance. That rent payment offer was announced by the beauty multi-millionaire on Twitter on March 15, 2019.

Matthew Charles, an African American, was released from prison in January 2019 after serving 21 years for drug related offenses, and has been homeless since then. His release is an outcome of the First Step Act, a new law emanating from President Donald Trump's great reform of sentencing laws that wrongly and disproportionately harm African Americans.
