Actor A.J. Johnson’s Funeral GoFundMe Passes $46K After Wife Calls Out ‘Fake Love’, Comedian Lil Rel Reportedly Gives Largest Donation W/$4k

‘Friday’ actor Anthony ‘A.J.’ Johnson’s friends and fans came together to make sure his wife is able to pay for his funeral expenses. The GoFundMe petition created to help fund Anthony Johnson’s funeral has passed its goal of $20k and is currently nearly $47k.

It appears that comedian Lil Rel, born Milton Howery Jr., has given the largest donation so far. The GoFundMe lists the name ‘Rel Howery’ under the highest donations for $4k.

As previously reported, many were shocked when news recently broke that actor/comedian Anthony Johnson was found lifeless in a Los Angeles store last month. A cause of death still hasn’t been released.

Following Anthony Johnson’s passing, his wife, Lexis Jones Mason, created a GoFundMe petition in hopes of raising money for any funeral costs she may have to deal with. Initially, Lexis Jones Mason was only able to raise less than $800. In an interview earlier this week, Lexis Jones Mason called out “fake love” Anthony Johnson’s family received after his death. She also claimed that certain people said they would chip in with funeral expenses but didn’t. Lexis Jones Mason then shared that if she wasn’t able to raise the money needed for a funeral she would have Anthony Johnson cremated then return to work to pay for the service.

Following her interview, Comedian Michael Blackson shared a post to his own IG page encouraging his fans to donate to the Johnson family and vowed to match donations.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the family and loved ones of Anthony Johnson at this time.
