Tupac Denied Unemployment


On Monday, Governor Andy Beshear said dubious claims were slowing the benefits process.

“Can’t be doing that,” he told media.

“We had somebody apply for unemployment for Tupac Shakur here in Kentucky,” Mr Beshear said.

“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.”

The criticism came as a shock to Tupac Malik Shakur, 46, who reportedly lives in Lexington, Kentucky, and had worked as a cook before the coronavirus pandemic closed down restaurants.

Mr Shakur, who goes by Malik, filed for unemployment on 13 March and has since waited in vain for his cheque.

    This is hilarious!

    I imagine that the same sort of technique could be used to strike people from the voting rolls.

    Johnny,  If only Tupac would not respond to a post card, within the 30 days, as instructed.  And then, only if State Law isn’t ignored.
