Good morning Bloginity readers, it’s 9:25 AM and I’m waking up to these terrible headlines. Wyclef Jean who has been a huge supporter of haiti as a Presidential Candidate was shot last night (Around 10:00 PM – 11:00 PM local time).
A senior program director from Wyclef’s Yele Foundation confirmed the AP reports that Wyclef was in Delmas, Haiti when shot. Another report from USA Today is titled “Wyclef Jean ‘doing well’ after being shot in hand in Haiti’ (updated 8:53 AM) so this is the good news.
“He is doing well,” Jean’s publicist Cindy Tanenbaum tells CNN. She also described the wound as superficial.
The shooting occurred on the eve of presidential elections in Haiti. Jean has been in Haiti to show support for fellow musician Michel Martelly, who is a newcomer to the nation’s political scene. repor
