Orange Beach mayor creates GoFundMe to help celebrities move out of U.S.

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (WIAT) — Orange Beach Alabama Mayor Tony Kennon says he wants everyone, including celebrities, who vowed to leave the country if Donald Trump became president to keep their promise.

Mayor Kennon has set up a GoFundMe account to help them out. His account is called “Don’t Let The Screen Door Hit You”.

Kennon says he started the fund out of frustration over what he calls the hypocrisy of it all.

“I want to raise $10 million to buy all the bus tickets we can find to send all the celebrities and athletes who don’t love this country to Tijuana Mexico for a better life,” Mayor Kennon said. “The minute things don’t go their way they’re going to take their ball and go home, in this case, take their money and go somewhere else. And I just want to help them, that’s the kind of guy I am. I want to help them get out of town.”

Kennon says he is not really buying bus tickets with any money he raises, but wants to donate to local charities.

As of Monday morning, the account had more than $1,000.
