Teen, thrown out of house, finds financial support online

Daniel Ashley Pierce, 19, made $93,000 in the last few weeks by getting thrown out of his home by his mother. He’s gay.

The Georgia teenager posted a YouTube video late last month of his mother telling him to “get out” earlier this week on GoFundMe, in order to raise money for living expenses. (Obscenities in video)

“They took everything including my college text books. I intend to use this money to get the basic things I need such as a bed, text books, medical stuff and transportation,” he wrote.

He’s since asked people to stop giving him money, and redirect it to an Atlanta organization that helps homeless LGBT youth instead.
