Some TikTokers’ attempt to troll and sabotage US President Donald Trump’s campaign in Staten Island had backfired against anti-Trumpers, the New York Post reported.
In June, TikTok’s Generation Z trolled the president’s campaign in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and reserved tickets to the event they don’t have plans of attending.
According to reports then, the number of reserved tickets made the organizers hopeful of a bigger crowd turnout.
However, it seems that the tables have turned in another attempt to sabotage a Trump rally that happened last week.
According to the Post, the attempted sabotage has earned the GOP almost $16,000 donation.
According to the Post, last month, people from outside New York started signing up for the “TRiUMPh rally” online using vulgar usernames.
The signed names include “Ivana Punchyou” and “Grabemby DePussay,” per the Post.
The event only had 1,500 RSVP’s from the State, GOP chairman in Staten Island, Brendan Lantry told the Post.
However, when the numbers started registering at 10,000 to 70,000, its organizers thought “something was not right.”
Tracing the Source
The TikTok user calls herself Felisrae, said the Post.
“Do you hate this orange b***h as much as I do?” the teen asked in her short video.
Felisrae then went on and shared that she reserved herself “two seats” for Trump’s rally in Staten Island.
The TikTok user added, “but I’m pretty sure I have something to do that day.”
According to Post, the video raked more than 500,000 views and more than 100,000 likes.
$5 Reservation Fee
Lantry said that some people hate the president so much, “they’re willing to donate to the Republican Party to troll him.”
According to the Daily Wire, the events organizer tried to discourage troll TikTokers through an addition of a $5 non-refundable fee.
However, people keep on signing up, and eventually, the GOP party was able to garner $15,785 from the TikTok stunt.
