Prostate Cancer Foundation Does Not Want Reddit's Sleazy Money
A charity has responded to a so-called fundraiser started on Reddit which sought to encourage
people assholes who looked at nude pictures of Jennifer Lawrence to donate on her behalf.
Before people get all high and mighty about “good causes” and obscure friends/relatives who had other friends/relatives die of this terrible disease, don’t think for one second this “fundraiser” was started with any noble intentions of actually helping people dying of a very serious disease. The donation drive was started on r/TheFappening in “honor” of Jennifer Lawrence, who was one of dozens of women who had their privacy grossly invaded over the weekend, basically as a way of laughably clearing the conscience of whatever sick human slug decided it was OK to share the stolen pictures.
The boy geniuses who decided this was a good idea did it because they said Lawrence previously supported the charity (this was later debunked) and because HAHAHAHAHA masturbating decreases the likelihood of prostate cancer. So that makes it OK to look at all the pictures of women who had their privacy illegally invaded that you want! #redditorlogic.
But fuck all that noise, because the chosen charity, the Prostate Cancer Foundation is just as sickened by this bullshit as the rest of us. Please bask in the glory of their wonderful response:
September 2, 2104 — A post appeared on Reddit late Monday afternoon, September 1, 2014. A Reddit user directed other Reddit users to make a donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation without the Foundation’s knowledge. We would never condone raising funds for cancer research in this manner. Out of respect for everyone involved and in keeping with our own standards, we are returning all donations that resulted from this post.
Since they’ve been rejected by a sane charity that wants no part of this heinous abomination, the Redditors on r/TheFappening have decided to switch to a new charity, water.org. “Water is a fundamental human need and right and, since we all seem to be thirsty motherfuckers, it seems like the place to go,” according to a new post on the forum. Right. Because privacy isn’t a ” fundamental human need and right,” especially not when it comes to “fappable” pics of famous women.
