Quran, a young black woman who announced over Twitter that she was a Donald Trump supporter whose family had cut her off for her political beliefs, persuaded some Trump voters into donating to her via GoFundMe. The secret: It was all a scam.
\u201cthank you all so much for your overwhelming support. After seeing this tweet my parents cut me off and refuse to pay my university tuition. So if you can find it in your hearts to help this young, black republican pay for school it would be appreciated \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 \nhttps://t.co/6HGCAj6aTC\u201d
Quran went so far to claim that her mother was kicking her out for being a Trump supporter, tweeting, "My mother literally woke me up out my sleep and screamed at me "how could you support this monster" she doesn't even know him so how can he be a monster."
Donations from Trump supporters came rolling in. Quran said she even bought an iPhone with the funds. But then she denounced Trump.
\u201cbut you are. in the policies that you choose to vote in, effectively still separating us. politicians work for the rich but you still think they\u2019re in your pocket?? HA!! it\u2019s such a troll-y tweet come on guys. get a fuckin grip\u201d
"I just felt really weird about taking their money. This could go south really fast, I just decided to refund everyone and give their money back. I think it was like maybe $200 at that point," Quran told New York Magazine.
However, that didn't stop the internet from singing her praises.
