Featured prominently in this month’s edition of Viral Video Sensation Tries to Continue Cashing In is Antoine Dodson, the once-gay Hebrew Israelite and the man known best for the way he reacted to a rapist.
The Alabama native’s attempting to revive his career via a reality show, The Antoine Dodson Experience, and he needs YOUR money to do it.
Recently Dodson turned his attention to Kickstarter, where he launched a campaign to raise $38,000 in operating costs. The campaign claims he “wants to use the platform of his show to help other victims” of rape by “letting a team of filmmakers follow him on his journey where we will witness him watch the birth of his baby, repair his relationship with his baby-mama, move on from his latest ex-girlfriend (who also happens to be his brothers’ ex-girlfriend), explore his sexuality, attempt to reconcile with his estranged family,” and do a whole lot more that frankly doesn’t sound very realistic.
“My life is a roller-coater and I know my fans would like more of an inside peek,” he wrote. “But I don’t want to do it in a way that is fake or manufactured reality. I want you to see the truth in all its glory and heartache.”
And give him $38,000.
Rewards include Antoine Dodson bandanas ($50), personal video messages ($250), and a private Skype call ($1,000). So far, Dodson’s raised $776 from 20 backers ($776 wins you a private phone call).
We wish everybody in this campaign the best of luck, especially Dodson, who needs it so badly.
