If you're planning on flying to Las Vegas in May for the Floyd Mayweather/Manny Pacquiao fight, you'd better be prepared to spend some serious cash. You can forget about buying tickets to the match—you already know that's going to be pretty much impossible for the average person. But just about everything is going to cost a fortune that weekend. So you're better off just staying home and watching the fight on pay-per-view.
Bottle service girl/author Jameelah Kareem doesn't want to miss that weekend, though. She wants to be in Vegas for the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight. But she apparently can't afford to do it, so she just started a GoFundMe page to try and get people to donate money to finance her trip. Her reasoning for doing it is simple enough: She once saw a guy raise a lot of money to make potato salad, so why not?
But she's also not shy about admitting that she likes "free money":
And if you donate more than $50 to her, she promises to send you signed copies of her books:
She's getting killed on Twitter for trying to raise money to go to Vegas:
But she's taking it all in stride:
And the joke's probably going to be on all of the people hating on her. Because as of right now, she's raised more than $800 towards her goal of $1500, and her story has gone viral. So by the time May 2 rolls around, we wouldn't be surprised to see her sitting front and center for the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight. Who's going to be laughing then?
