Please donate to this GoFundMe to get Kanye West out of debt

He needs that money more than you do.

Kanye West has been pretty busy lately, especially on Twitter. And it was in the midst of one of his social media meltdowns that he let this troubling tidbit slip.

While it’s unknown if the rapper is actually 53 million dollars in debt, some fans have taken matters into their own hands to help Kanye in his time of need. Created by Jeremy Piatt, a GoFundMe page titled “Get Kanye Out Of Debt” has earned $1,505 as of this moment. 


“Kanye West, prolific entertainer/fashion icon/celebrity/member of the Kardashian family needs our help,” Piatt wrote. “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.”

Although nearly 200 people have donated, many oppose the crowdfunding, as evident in the page’s comments section. Here are a few choice gems:

  • “This might, literally, be the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen. Congratulations. You’re what’s wrong with the world.”
  • “I would rather give money to the westboro baptist church than this dick.”
  • “I’m sure if he sold his collection of chinchilla jumpsuits, polar bear thongs, and german shepherd anal beads he would be out of debt.”
  • “I donate negative 54 million dollars. 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.”
  • “I will leave you zero dollars. You are the biggest jerkoff in the world and married to that disgusting pig. I’ll be willing to help you raise money if you’re willing to fight me for a charity event. 50% goes to a charity such as St. Jude’s, Make A Wish or Wounded Warrior and the other 50% goes to your stupid cause. I don’t want a dollar…only the satisfaction of punching you in the face. Let’s see what kind of man you really are.”

A lot of people, however, would be inclined to fund Kanye’s departure from the country. So, you know, there’s that. But if you do want to donate, just check out the page (looking at you, Zuckerberg).
