Cameron Esposito Turns Mike Huckabee’s Transphobic Hate In To Cash For Trans Lifeline

Over the weekend, comedian Cameron Esposito performed alchemy, turning a hateful tweet from former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee into fundraising gold for a transgender support line.

Last week, Gov. Mike Huckabee tweeted a ‘joke’ about how Sen. Chuck Schumer (who recently shed a tear recalling his family that died in the Holocaust) would be starring in a remake of the film ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ (about the brutal murder of transgender man Brandon Teena).

Esposito initially responded with biting humor.

But then she took her outrage and turned it into money for a worthy cause: Trans Lifeline, a crisis line for the transgender community.

Before long, the idea took off. People started donating, offering matches, and tagging Huckabee all along the way.

Esposito says $13,000 has been raised for Trans Lifeline in memory of Brandon Teena.

She says she hoping to raise $15,000 in 24 hours.
