Tila Tequila, the reality star who made headlines last week with her flat earth Twitter rant, has started a new GoFundMe campaign to raise money for a new apartment and furniture.
The new fundraising campaign takes the place of one that was taken down because it violated the site’s rules, according to Tila’s own statement on GoFundMe. She’s now asking for $10,000 in donations.
“I guess I was trying to be funny to make people laugh, but then people thought I was joking so they reported me.”
Miss Tequila says she started the new GoFundMe account because she needs donations from fans and flat earth supporters to move into and furnish a new apartment after the rent on her old home was raised to $4,500 a month.
“Being a single mother without any support from the father, it can sometimes be very tough taking care of 2 people with only a 1 person income.”
Tila says she’s not embarrassed to ask for the money she needs to fully equip her new apartment because the new home will help her save money so she can spend more on her daughter.
Tequila is asking for donations for a new home, new furniture, and new bedding and said she’s not afraid to be a celebrity asking for money.
“I have zero pride or ego when it comes to taking care of my daughter because this is what real good mother’s do. [sic]”
If Tequila reaches her $10,000 goal, she promises to give her fans a live tour of her new home complete with furniture and bedding.
So far, Tila has raised $56.
This is for my daughter so we won’t be homeless and she won’t starve.
The promise of a tour is a step down from her previous promises to teach us all how to time travel and teleport, both of which she offered if enough people donated to her PayPal account to reach her $25,000 goal.
Her original GoFundMe campaign post, which she promoted on social media sites Twitter and Facebook, said she needed financial help to move herself and her child to a white neighborhood where she wouldn’t be killed. The money would also help her get off her Mountain Dew addiction.
“I have been defeated by the Government and their bio-weapon attacks against me for the past few years ever since I got assassinated, and killed in 2012 then was replaced with a clone!”
Tila Tequila’s request for donations has angered quite a few people on social media who say she has plenty of money and shouldn’t be asking her fans and flat earth supporters to help her out.
Other people, along with several media outlets, questioned the actress’s sanity and whether she should be allowed to raise a child. They said her insane tweets demonstrate the schizophrenic nature of a mentally disturbed person.
The former model/reality star/adult movie actress/television host trended on Twitter last week with her insane rant about the flat earth movement, being conceived by the existence of aliens, and, of course, claims of her own death and resurrection, according to the Hollywood Gossip.
Tila’s Twitter rant started with her announcement that the earth was actually flat despite whatever misinformation you may have heard from the government. Then she moved on to inform everyone they were living in a giant Truman Show-type Hollywood production and the moon was placed in the sky by aliens.
What do you think? Should the public finance Tila Tequila’s new apartment and furniture?
