Prostate Cancer Foundation Rejects Donations Spurred by Celebrity Nude Photo Scandal

In the wake of the theft of nude photos of several Hollywood stars, users of the social media website Reddit launched a campaign to donate to the Prostate Cancer Foundation in the name of the nude photo scandal and actress Jennifer Lawrence. But as soon as the Foundation realized the main reason for the donations they rejected the money.

Reddit has hundreds of pages where users gather to discuss specific topics. One of those sections is called “the Frapping.” This page is dedicated to the discussion of nude photos of Hollywood celebrities–photos that are usually fakes. But this week the page was abuzz sharing the nude photos stolen from various Hollywood actresses.

Early this week one anonymous user came up with the idea of donating money to the cancer charity the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) in the name of the stolen nude photos of the “Hunger Games” actress.

The effort was pretty successful, too, raising thousands of dollars for the cancer group in only a few days.

But PCF was not pleased to find out that the imputes for raising the money was the exploitation of actress Lawrence and others on Reddit. The charity rejected the donations and placed a message on its website to denounce the whole situation.

A post appeared on Reddit late Monday afternoon, September 1, 2014. A Reddit user directed other Reddit users to make a donation to the Prostate Cancer Foundation without the Foundation’s knowledge. We would never condone raising funds for cancer research in this manner. Out of respect for everyone involved and in keeping with our own standards, we are returning all donations that resulted from this post.

This, in turn, did not sit ell with the Reddit users.

One user going by the name CaptainDogeSparrow wrote, “So they rather watch people with cancer die than to take reddit money? They are literally saying that Jennifer Lawrence is more important than a cure for cancer. Disgusting.”

Other messages were similar with many lapsing into much stronger language.

The Reddit page that sponsored this group of perverts, by the way, has at last been shut down by Reddit. So, don’t bother looking for them anymore.

    I didn’t know you were a white knight, Warner.

    the exploitation of actress Lawrence and others on Reddit.

    “Exploitation,” classic. Maybe you’ll get a job at the Bryn Mawr Women’s Studies Department. Not.

    Nor will slutty Jennifer Lawrence or Kate Upton ever fuck you for your defense of their privacy. They’re not going to gobble the cock of chubby middle aged bloggers.

    As Chico has said before, it’s a hoot when movement conservative zombies try to be all Politically Correct and shit.

    • Brett Buck

      Again, a brilliant analysis. You apparently forgot that the entire notion that conservatives hate and want to repress women is complete and utter bullshit that you guys made up from whole cloth.

      • Commander_Chico

        Ha, more defensiveness, I love it. Except I am not one of “you guys.”

        • Brett Buck

          I am not interesting in defending. I merely point out that you seem to be falling for your own bullshit. At least you think you would know not to parrot Debbie Wasserman-Schultz talking points. But apparently not.

          Not one of “those” guys? You are such a stereotype of “those” guys you aren’t even aware of it.

    • Shawn

      Chico, you are one weird fuck.

    • “Nor will slutty Jennifer Lawrence or Kate Upton ever fuck you…”

      What does that even mean? Seriously. What makes you think I’d ever even MEET any of these people much less expect to have a chance to have relations with them?

      Only an idiot would even say such a thing, really.

      • Paul Hooson

        A guy may not meet them. But, those pictures are hot and some serious meat-grinding material!

      • Commander_Chico

        Your post is the essence of internet white-knighting.

          • Like a 14-year-old using Internet memes to guide his life. No wonder Chico is so screwed up.

          • jim_m

            Trust the amoral ass to fail in understanding someone else by imputing his own motivations on the actions of others.

            While I fully expect your actions to be motivated by a manipulative attempt to have sex with someone, not everyone else thinks that way. This goes a long way to explain why you have to pay for sex from small children.

          • Brett Buck

            Again, right on the money. No one ever does or says anything based on morality, their sense of right and wrong, or common decency. Everyone’s actions are driven solely by what it might get them. So naturally it’s silly when it’s not going to get them anything, right?

            And the best arguments are always immature snark. Little Chico, still mad you had to sit at the “loser table” at lunch, making oh-so-clever snide comments about everyone more popular or more successful, (IOW, better) than you, making your loser pals laugh.

            In both cases, of course, you are projecting your own character defects on everyone else. No wonder the world is such a depressing place – everybody is amoral and a little slow!

            I would say that’s the liberal trifecta for the day, congratulations. As above, absolutely stereotypical.

            By the way, I don’t entirely buy into WTH’s “exploitation” premise completely, either, so there is a *legitimate* point you could have made, had you been able to see it.

          • Paul Hooson

            Great funny photo and message!

    • Jwb10001

      You know women find men that refer to themselves in the 3rd person creepy right. This might be why you have to pay for sex, well that an all the other creepy stuff about you.

      • Commander_Chico

        I don’t think you’re a good source of information on how to seduce women.

        Chico does quite well on his own, thank you.

        • jim_m

          You mean you have sufficient income to pay. Come on. You’ve said enough here that everyone here knows that you pay for it.

        • Jwb10001

          Chico, it’s unbecoming to brag about your conquests (if you’ve ever really had any) If you really had it you wouldn’t have to talk about it. So please spare us. You’re like the idiot that runs around telling people how smart he is…. I mean you are that idiot.

    I believe it was called “The Fappening”. “The Frapping” has starbucks implications. btw, from someone currently getting radiation treatments for prostate cancer, I don’t really have an issue where the money comes from. Surely charitable donations have come, no pun intended, from other dubious places.

    • Shawn

      Pretty sad it has to take hacked nude photos of Hollywood starlets to motivate one to make a charitable donation.

      • Commander_Chico

        Whatever it takes.

        At least some good will come out of this sad episode of seeing JLaw’s pussy and Kate Upton getting boned by Justin Verlander, boo-hoo.

        • Paul Hooson

          If those pictures were real, Kate Upton had an awesome chest! – My current girlfriend is a natural H cupper! – Man those are awesome! They don’t call them fun bags for nothing!

      • Vagabond661

        Whatever it takes to get people to donate. Ever watch jerry Lewis’s telethon?

        • Paul Hooson

          Yes, Jerry Lewis started out normal enough in the first few hours, but then as he grew tired he begins to act ever more bizarre until the event becomes freakish….It’s probably the reason he was fired from the event a few years ago….

  • Paul Hooson

    I doubt their perverts, I think boys are just being boys. – Heck, in businesses I owned, my girlfriends have stopped by for sex fun with me for years. Nothing breaks up a little office boredom like a nice BJ or better! – I’m about 60 and I just love girlfriends in their 20’s to early 30’s! I just had a 32 year old and her friend stop by a few minutes ago, and I’m still horny…I feel like calling her back up to come back….

    • Commander_Chico

      Don’t you get a lot of drama from strippers? They are notoriously crazy.

      • Paul Hooson

        Sometimes….But, in the heat of passion it almost seems worthwhile….

    This sort of thing happens everywhere. I have seen churches turn down money that has come from lottery winnings because they don’t like gambling. I always thought that was foolish, because you aren’t encouraging gambling by taking the money, you are taking something that you believe was illgotten and turning into something good. I think the same misguided thinking is going on at the PCF. Who cares where the money comes from? No demands are being placed on you other than to do something good with the money.

    I get these sort of purity tests when it comes to political donations because the fear is that the donor is going to expect a quid pro quo (and more likely than not, get one). But there is nothing of the sort to fear here. People need to get over themselves, take the money, and do something good with it.
