The campaign promoting the claim that Danney Williams is the son of Bill Clinton has been targeting black users online, The Daily Caller has learned.

Currently, the Danney Williams rap music video has a prominent front page placement on WorldStarHipHop, due to the fact it is sponsored. The ad has been there since Monday. WorldStarHipHop is the 347th biggest site in America, according to Alexa, and WordStar’s founder has described it as “CNN of the ghetto.”

A source involved with the ad buy and the Danney Williams effort told TheDC it cost $5,000 for a day to run that placement. A previous video, Banished, also received sponsored placement on WorldStarHipHop.

The source told theDC that the WorldStarHipHop effort is “minor compared to the Facebook targeting.” The Danney Williams videos on Facebook have been targeted towards black users, the source said. He added, “You can’t target by race but you’re guessing by other demographic information.”

The source said three Danney Williams videos have gotten upwards of 50 million views on seven different outlets. These outlets include Infowars, Facebook, Youtube, and WorldStarHipHop among others.
