tyrone hankerson jr says we got it all wrong.
after black twitter and the foxhole dragged him into the deep abyss,
he crawled out to fight back against all the accusations.
he says he allegedly didn’t do anything illegal.
he released a statement and even made it to “people”...
“That is not true. I received over $200,000 for the four years I was an undergrad at Howard, but that wasn’t just a traditional schedule,” Hankerson Jr. tells PEOPLE. “I also went to summer school, and I also had opportunities to study abroad. I did not receive any award that was labeled something when I actually was not entitled to it.”
His attorney, James Walker, notes that Hankerson Jr. graduated summa cum laude from the university’s undergraduate program with a 4.0 GPA. He is expected to graduate from the Washington, D.C., law school next month.
