Last month, aspiring tennis player Darko Grncarov set up a GoFundMe to finance treatment for an ear issue.
More than $2,000 was raised before Grncarov – who indicated the beneficiary would be actress Karin Duseva – refunded the money. Despite impending deafness.
The campaign remains open; the original target was $5,000.
Grncarov’s troll through social media was chronicled by Slate a year ago.
Still, he has amassed 100,000 followers on Twitter and 80,000 on Instagram – and got verified.
His latest gig is to mobilize his following to get him on the Ellen Show, so she can help him with the ear.
