A man in Kentucky named Tupac Shakur was attempting to file for unemployment during the Coronavirus pandemic and was accused of fraud by the governor of the state.
"We had somebody apply for unemployment for Tupac Shakur here in Kentucky, and that person may have thought they were being funny, they probably did. Except for the fact that because of them, we had to go through so many other claims.”
However Governor Andy Beshear soon had to eat those words as Tupac Malik Shakur was indeed a resident of the state of Kentucky, filing for unemployment in the beginning of March. Shakur has yet to receive any money from unemployment. According to CNN the Governor spoke to Shakur on the phone apologizing and said he would make sure the claim went through...
"I talked to him on the phone today. I apologized, I told him how it happened. But it's my fault. He was gracious. I said I'm sorry if I embarrassed him or caused him any attention he didn't want. He ended the call 'God bless.'"
