Women’s March apologizes for $ 14.92 ‘colonization’ donation request

Women’s March is widely mocked online after the organization demanded $ 14.92 in donations from supporters – and then “deeply” apologized for not realizing that the reflected year Christopher Columbus landed in America.



“We sincerely apologize for the email that was sent today. $ 14.92 was our average donation amount this week,” Women’s March tweeted on Tuesday.

“It was an oversight on our part not to make the connection to a year of colonization, conquest and genocide for the indigenous people, especially before Thanksgiving.”



The request for $ 14.92 had previously been sent to supporters in an email blast.

It was not immediately clear if the group’s apology was prompted by complaints from people who were offended by the donation figure.



The apology was immediately ridiculed online – with some questioning whether it was satire while others insisted that everyone who was triggered by the donation needed help.

Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer twittrade: “Let’s all record and increase the amount to $ 17.76. Then they will really lose their minds. “

“The Women’s March is not a serious organization. If you can not see the amount of $ 14.92 without being triggered, seek help, “political commentator Lauren Chen twittrade.

Dr. Jordan Peterson Added: “This is perhaps the most hypocritical virtue-signaling tweet I’ve ever seen. And it really says something.”

“We did it. We finally held the women’s march responsible for Columbus’ crime.” Nando Vila wrote.
