This is a funny story of the different forms that resistance can take in the era of Hair Füror:
Buzzfeed has more:
A 45-year-old man who lives in an apartment building in downtown Cleveland has raised thousands of dollars after posting a sign on his window as a joke.
When Jett Croisant noticed his downstairs neighbor had put up Trump banners in their window amid all the civil rights protests, he decided to post his own sign. It read, “Venmo @Jet513 and I will tapdance at midnight.”
So, how many Ameros has this tap-dancing Croisant been pledged and what’s he doing with it?
Croisant only got one Venmo payment for $4 prior to his sign spreading on social media. Over the past few days, he’s watched it grow exponentially. On Monday, he had nearly $6,400 in Venmo transactions from strangers on the internet.
By Tuesday, it grew to well over $10,000.
“This is amazing,” he said, but he’s overwhelmed. He was previously planning to tap-dance on Wednesday night, the same day he posted the sign. But as more funds are coming in, he’s waiting to raise more money. He’s planning to donate all the funds to the ACLU.
Anyway, our take-away (besides that there is a tap-dancing Croisant) is that smart snarkiness pays. Bravo, M. Croisant!
