Alabama fan starts GoFundMe page for billboard in Baton Rouge, with charitable side mission
LSU fans have already raised enough money to put “#FreeDevinWhite” billboards up in Birmingham (the home of the SEC headquarters) in protest of the controversial targeting call that will cost the star linebacker the first half against Alabama next weekend.
Now, Crimson Tide fans are responding. On Tuesday, one fan started another GoFundMe page to raise money for billboards in Baton Rouge.
According to the page’s summary, the money will go toward putting up billboards in Baton Rouge with a message to donate to Hurricane Michael relief efforts:
While LSU fans waste their money on meaningless billboards based on a conspiracy theory between The University Of Alabama and the Southeastern Conference offices in Birmingham, we are starting this campaign to raise money for hurricane relief efforts for victims of Hurricane Michael, which devastated parts of the Eastern United States in early October.
The page calls out LSU fans for wasting their money, but apparently didn’t see that any extra money would be donated to LSU’s School of Veterinary Medicine in honor of White’s love of horses.
For now, though, the billboard battle continues.
