Catherine Scorsese is pulling down her GoFundMe for her flooded apartment due to people side-eyeing it as a poor excuse for a GoFundMe. People also took issue with it because her last name is Scorsese, her family is loaded and they thought maybe she should be digging into her father’s super deep pockets instead of her Local 52 union friends and family pockets to pay for own apartment.
According to Page Six
The head-scratching public plea by Catherine Scorcese raised more social media ire than cash, pulling in just $6,110 for the scion of Hollywood royalty.
Her Williamsburg pad was ruined by water and raw sewage that overflowed from an upstairs neighbor’s toilet, and the money was needed for repairs, relocations costs and boarding fees for five of her eight pets. Her insurance deductible was $25,000, she said.
Catherine is defending her GoFundMe, which was started by her sisters, saying that it was it was just a way for her friends and family (minus her dad) to help.
The 53-year-old daughter of the “Goodfellas” director, who works as a prop master and film production crew member, told The Post earlier that she wasn’t “a trust fund baby” and if she were to ask her famous dad for a favor, “I’m going to ask for something like helping to fix me up with Chris Evans.”
“The truth was my friends and family wanted to help,” she said. “I am a card carrying member of Local 52 and have been for 25 years and they wanted to help.”
Okay.. way to may it creepy and elitist, Catherine! Some of us can’t just ask our dad for dates with Chris Evans. We have to do it the old-fashioned way by obsessively trying to DM him and finding out what hotel he’s staying at and disguising ourselves as a sassy but lovable maid in hopes he falls in love with us. I mean, my dad can’t hook me up with Chris Evans, but yesterday he told me that he recently was the third wheel on a Grindr date with his 85-year-old neighbor. In fairness, the neighbor told him he was meeting a friend, he just didn’t mention that it was a friend he was meeting for the first time through Grindr. So if Chris Evans happens to be on Grindr in Cape Cod and looking for an older man who likes to bring neighbors on dates, then I also have connections!
Catherine went to say she didn’t appreciate all the hate, and promised that someday we will feel shame for questioning this GoFund Me.
She said the campaign had been up for over a month “before some dumb-fuck ‘insider’ decided he didn’t like me because of my last name.
“I find it amazing that I am being called a ‘parasite’ because my friends and family wanted to help me and I didn’t go running to my daddy for $$,” she said in a text message.
“Someday I will get to tell my side of the story and I guarantee you will all be hanging your heads in shame.”
Hanging our heads in shame?! What the fuck is Catherine alluding to here?! And also, the time is now, Catherine, not sure what you waiting for? There’s into going to a be a prequel or sequel to this mess. This is it. This is the mess.
Either way she needs to stop asking people for money, but please for the love of everything holy, please keep publicly asking Chris Evans out on dates.
