A user on Instagram user managed to raise more than $1 million for Planned Parenthood as a gesture of spite against the late radio host Rush Limbaugh.
Tommy Marcus, who goes by the username @Quentin. Quarantino and describes himself as “leftist scum” in his Instagram bio, started the fundraising Wednesday by posting a photo of the $100 donation he made to Planned Parenthood in memory of Limbaugh.
Many others began to take Marcus’ lead in donating to the organization, after which he made a public fundraising campaign with the intention of raising $10,000. The Quentin Quarantino Rush Limbaugh Memorial Planned Parenthood Fundraiser surpassed $1 million on Saturday.
Marcus told VICE News he meant for the campaign to scoff at Limbaugh, claiming the talk show host spent “decades clogging the airwaves with sexist, homophobic, racist, endlessly discriminatory propaganda.”
“He is really, to me, the embodiment of Trump’s America, of hatred, of the division that we see in our country right now,” Marcus added.
Marcus gloated about his campaign’s success on Twitter, writing, “If Rush Limbaugh was so pro-life then why did he die and posthumously raise $1.1 million+ for Planned Parenthood?”
