As Twitchy reported, yesterday, Upfront Media Group director Shaun King was threatening a boycott against GoFundMe for allowing a page supporting Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. Today, he decided that the time had come to make good on his promise:

King did get retweets and shares, just like he asked for:

But he also got a pretty darn good question:

Well, like King said earlier: If you can’t transfer your fundraiser to another site, “please pledge to NEVER use @GoFundMe again.” Even if, as of the time this post was published, one of the handful GoFundMe pages related to Michael Brown has raised over $170,000? Seems pretty successful, no? Oh well.
