People are trying to help Kanye West reclaim his billionaire status through crowdsourcing, but his detractors have replied with equal zeal.
Here’s how it works… This week, at least one GoFundMe page (maybe more) popped up, requesting money to make Kanye a millionaire again… Apparently carried out by people who felt he’d been treated unfairly because of his antisemitism.
None of the campaigns appear to have been successful, apparently earning only a few dollars before being removed totally. Later, I’ll explain why they were yanked.
In response to that nonsense … even more silliness. Ye haters have rallied in opposition with their own GFMs that are apparently trying to keep him from hitting 10-digits with an interesting strategy — namely, asking that *they* be made billionaires instead. 😅
The sites are multiplying, with hundreds of people putting out their reasoning as… hey, Kanye sucks and he doesn’t deserve to be a billionaire again, but I do!!!
As previously stated, it’s all fairly ridiculous… but the fact that these GoFundMes are being formed as quickly and widely as they are — from all over the world — only goes to show how upset Kanye has made people in the aftermath of his controversial remarks/fall from grace.
FWIW, these new anti-Ye pages are falling flat. None have raised more than $25, and a majority are in the $5 – $6 range.
In other words, Kanye’s fans and haters alike have a better chance of winning the lottery than striking it rich from donations. Sources familiar tell TMZ … GFM’s terms of service may explain why the pro-Kanye campaigns were yanked and the anti-Ye ones are still live.
Money on GoFundMe must be used for the purpose detailed on the fundraising page … and because Kanye wasn’t officially a beneficiary, the page was pulled.
