Wow.. Had no idea. What strange time to be alive.
Such bullshit. Here are the cliff notes for those that don't want to read the article:
-24 year old attends GameDay at ISU asking for beer money to buy Busch Light and includes his Venmo
-He made the sign as a joke only expecting enough to get a case of beer.
-Within hours he had $400
-He tweets that he is only keeping enough for a case and donating the rest to the University of Iowa Kid's Hospital till the end of September.
-The donations came pouring in.
-Busch Light says they will match his donations and Venmo does the same.
-Busch says he gets free beer for a year and custome Iowa Legend cans with his face on them.
-He did the local media tour and then national media tour like Good Morning America and featured on ESPN.
-He was up to 1.1 million in total donations as of yesterday morning.
-Some tool at the Des Moines Register went and looked back at his Twitter history and turns out he quoted Tosh.0 (what was on the show) twice and in today's climate they might be a little insensitive but he was 16 (8 years ago).
-Tool @DMR decided to call Busch and tell them about it.
-Busch then announces they are cutting ties with him but will still donate but not send him custom beers or promote him/his cause.
-Venmo says they still support the cause.
-Carson then releases a statement saying he was sorry for the tweets when he was a kid.
-Tool @DMR then writes an article about the tweets.
-Iowa's number 1 beer in sales is Busch Light and the largest paper in the state are getting shit on pretty badly on social media. Tool @DMR had his social media history combed through by internet detectives. Turns out he posted was worse stuff going after just about every protected class you can think of.
-Every is taking screenshots and tweeting them at DMR. They release a statement saying they are investigating it.
-Meanwhile everyone in the midwest is rallying for the kid and he is now at 1.3 mil. Craft breweries stepping up, Make a Wish want to partner, and he got tickets for him and his family for the Iowa game on Saturday so he can Wave to the kids in the hospital he is donating to.
-And today the Governor of Iowa proclaimed that this Saturday is Carson King day.
Really cliff note:
-Fuck the tool at the Des Moines Register and whoever green lighted the article and called Busch instead of the kid telling him he should probably look through his tweets.
-Fuck Busch for severing ties buck not that badly since they are still donating to sick kids.
