Earlier today, we revealed that the GoFundMe managed to cancel the fundraiser for the truckers in Canada who are protesting for freedom and against the coronavirus restrictions.
Cruz asks for the opening of an investigation
It’s been just revealed that Sen. Ted Cruz sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission asking them to open an investigation into GoFundMe after the company canceled a fundraiser for truckers in Canada.
“Today I sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission asking that the FTC open an investigation into GoFundMe into whether they’ve committed deceptive trade practices.”
This is what Cruz told Fox News on Sunday. He continued and explained:
“Because when people gave money, they gave money under the promise it would go to the Freedom Convoy, not to whatever left-wing political ideology GoFundMe and other Silicon Valley companies support. They are deceiving consumers and it is wrong.”
Just in case you don’t know what’s this all about, Cruz’s comments come after GoFundMe canceled the Freedom Convoy fundraiser after it had raised approximately C$10 million for the truckers and already distributed C$1 million of the funds.
Elon Musk addresses the event
It’s been just revealed that he billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk responded recently to GoFundMe canceling the Freedom Convoy fundraiser for truckers that are protesting vaccine mandates in Canada by posting a meme that was targeting the company.
Musk responded to a tweet that was encouraging him to get his money back from GoFundMe after people had previously claimed that he donated to them.
“It’s not my money,” Musk responded.

In the tweet, Musk made sure to include a meme that showed thousands of packages on train tracks in Los Angeles that were left behind after the thieves stole items from trains and labeled them “Amateur Thieves.”
The meme then showed GoFundMe’s logo and labeled it, “Professional Thieves.”
