J. Cole is sending merch to a fan who was thrown from a Donald Trump rally.

Thomas DiMassimo, wearing a Dreamville Records shirt, tried to rush the stage at a Trump event on March 12, but was tackled by security. Shortly after, Trump alleged that the Cole fan was linked to ISIS in a doctored video that is now deleted. The actual video is from a protest of #NotMyFlag, which features the music of J. Cole's "Be Free," a tribute to Michael Brown.

HipHopEarly reports that Cole's manager, Ibrahim Hamad, saw that DiMassimo got his shirt ripped by security and is sending him a whole box of Dreamville gear.
