West Point cadet busted crowdfunding travel fare for adult film star to be his date to a service academy dance

Published

on

On Tuesday, the military news website Task & Purpose reported that a cadet at the United States Military Academy West Point tried to bring a porn star to the academy’s Yearling Winter Weekend banquet — and launched a campaign on the crowdfunding website GoFundMe to raise $1,200 for airfare and lodging for his supposed date.

“Diamond Foxxx agreed to go to Y dubs with me if I can pay for her plane ticket and hotel room,” posted the unidentified cadet, who went by the username “Mr. Krabs.” “Problem is I’m on the yuk payroll and I have no money. Please help a young boy’s dream come true.”

According to Task & Purpose, the crowdfunding campaign raised a number of potential ethics concerns, including that members of the U.S. military are not permitted to use their official positions to solicit money.

The page had raised $370 before the cadet locked it down, telling donors, “Some cadets and officers were discomforted by the effort to bring Diamond Foxxx to YWW, so I was advised with those with much higher rank than me to discontinue the campaign and inform the actress I can no longer bring her.” The cadet has requested to remain anonymous so as to avoid prospective employers from seeing his name on a Google search with the words “West Point” and “porn star.”

Diamond Foxxx was unavailable for comment.

MSNBC host Joy Reid couldn't help but note that this man was previously the United States National Security Advisor in charge of relaying serious threats to the president.

According to Flynn's lawyer, the pledge that he filmed closes with "where we go one, we go all," which is the motto of the group QAnon. But the lawyer said that the oath wasn't what Flynn was taking while raising his right hand for the video. Flynn also added #QAnon to his Twitter profile and began posting QAnon memes.
