You can’t make this stuff up.
A group of people have organized on the Internet crowdfunding website GoFundMe to try to fundraise $53 million to help Kanye West get out of debt.
Yep. (God, please have these people be kidding.)
West recently revealed on Twitter that he is $53 million in the hole, and begged Mark Zuckerberg for some coin.
According to the Root, the page was organized by a man named Jeremy Piatt of Minnesota.
“Kanye West, prolific entertainer/fashion icon/celebrity/member of the Kardashian family needs our help!,” a message from Piatt says on the crowdfunding page. “Recently, Kanye let us in on his personal struggle. He is 53 million dollars in debt and it doesn’t look like he’s going to get Mark Zuckerberg’s help that he desperately needs.
“We must open our hearts and wallets for Kanye today. Sure he is personally rich and can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can’t be realized.”
Not everyone is a big supporter of the campaign.
“I donate negative 54 million dollars,” Laurie Sanford said in the comments section of the page. “Maybe his clothing line should not have looked like the bums in Compton designed them. Wtf?? How about we raise money to feed starving children here in America?? Hmmm.. What a thought.”
So far the campaign has raised just under $800. So that should help.
