Charles Manson died earlier this week at a hospital in California. And even though he’ll always be known by many as an evil monster, there are still several sick people who have the audacity to stick up for him and his disgusting crimes and beliefs.
One such follower of the gruesome murderer set up a GoFundMe page to help cover Manson’s funeral expenses, as reported by TMZ.
Manson-sympathizer John Michael Jones set up a GoFundMe to help pay for Manson’s burial expenses and the fundraising idea was becoming a success as he reportedly raised over $900. But all hopes for Jones were crushed as GoFundMe caught on to the idea and shut down the page immediately after being tipped off.
After GoFundMe pulled the fundraiser, Jones said in a statement:
“It breaks my heart to see Jason [Manson’s grandson] now suffering from the same prejudices, hate, discrimination and deliberate lies that his grandfather endured for 48 years.“
The fundraising mastermind said he’s not giving up on his effort and has since moved to PayPal to collect funds. He begged everyone to “MAKE IT HAPPEN & SHOW THE WORLD WE WILL NOT ALLOW HATE TO INTERFERE WITH WHAT’S RIGHT!”
Here is his full statement:
A rep for GoFundMe was contacted and issued a statement regarding the termination of Manson’s burial fundraiser. He stated:
“We removed this content earlier today and refunded donors.”
TMZ said the rep did not explain why the page was “objectionable”, however you can only use common sense to explain why it was labeled that way. Afterall, Manson was responsible for 7 gruesome deaths.
Time is ticking away quickly for Jones’s goal to be reached, as Manson will be automatically cremated if not claimed within 10 days of his death! Do you think he will make it? Comment your thoughts about this story below!
