Would You Pay 12K For a Bottle of Noah Cyrus’s Tears?
You probably know by now that singer Noah Cyrus recently broke up with boyfriend Lil Xan. The 18-year-old celebrity jokingly listed a bottle of her tears (obviously not actual tears) on her merch site for the amount of $12,000. She thought people would laugh it off and move on, but something totally unexpected happened… People actually believed that she was selling her tears, and that’s when the trouble began: someone was so desperate to get this bottle that they started a GoFundMe campaign to raise the money. User Sad Cyren is apparently a MAJOR fan of Noah’s, so much that they asked people to donate money for this “cause”.
“I LOVE NOAH CYRUS SO MUCH I NEED A BOTTLE OF HER TEARS BUT IT’s $12,000!!!!!!!!!!!!” the description read. “PLEASE HELP ME MAKE MY DREAM COME TRUE AND GET ME TO MY GOAL!!!!!!!!!! IT SAYS ON THE PIZZASLIME STORE THAT IT’S ONLY AVAILABLE FOR 48 HOURS SO PLEASE SHARE THIS SO I CAN GET TO THE GOAL AS FAST AS POSSIBLE!!!!!”
15 hours following this post, eight people generously donated a total of $1,240. One of them paid $1,000… if only those people could get that enthusiastic about things like matter like feeding starving children in Africa, but oh well!
After Cyrus and her team knew what was going on, they immediately closed the campaign, and as a result of what was supposed to be a silly joke, Noah Cyrus had to reimburse the people that donated to the GoFundMe, and she even offered them a backstage pass to one of her shows. Now THAT’s how we do business.
