A rapper has been accused of filming a 'degrading' stunt after he threw $30,000 from his car into a group of homeless people outside a shelter.
Ralo posted the video on his Instagram account, showing him launching the money from the sunroof of his car in Atlanta, Georgia.
Friends are heard laughing as men and women fight each other to grab the dollar bills on the ground.
Ralo has come under fire for throwing money to homeless people and watching as they fight over it

Ralo, real name Terrell Davis, wrote: 'F*** going to the strip club, all the n***** wit money let's go to all the homeless shelters and make it rain on the poor people...'
He used the hashtag #RALOHOMELESSCHALLENGE.
It was met with a wave of condemnation, but has vowed to carry on, defending himself on Instragram.

Another wrote: 'The idea behind it is great. But very disrespectful to these people watching them scatter to pick up money off the ground because their life actually depends on it. The difference is, it's not a strip club where it's all for fun. These are real people who can't even eat a hot meal every day, treat them with a little decency.'
And a Twitter user responded: 'Degrading and lowering some of these people's value is sickening.'

‘I plan to do it again.’
He continued that he would welcome others joining in, stating: ‘I challenge anybody to come down here and match up what I’m going to throw.’
