A woman named Cinnamon Nicole from Cordova, Tenn. apparently spent a lot of money on Powerball tickets, chasing that $1.6 billion pot like thousands of other people.
And, like thousands of other people who played, Cinnamon lost.
So then she set up a Go Fund Me campaign to recoup her money, sharing her story of loss with strangers in hopes they would bail her out.
Her Go Fund Me page has since disappeared, but here’s part of what it said:
“Please help me and my family as we have exausted all of our funds. We spent all of our money on lottery tickets (expecting to win the 1.5 billion) and are now in dire need of cash. With your small donation of at least $1.00, a like and one share, I’m certain that we will be able to pick ourselves up from the trenches of this lost and spend another fortune trying to hit it big again! PLEASE, won’t you help a family in need. DONATE NOW.”
In exchange, she promised to make her benefactors #MCM (Man Crush Monday) or #WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday).
Bet you saw these reactions coming, didn’t you?
A lot of anger.
Even, yes, admiration.
