After asking her 21.3 million Instagram followers to donate to a friend’s GoFundMe page, Megan Fox addressed the flack she quickly received on the internet.

“hey weirdos,” she wrote in an IG story. “do any of you have the emotional intelligence to consider that maybe brit doesn’t want her celebrity clients donating large sums of money for her because it creates a dynamic in her working relationships that makes her uncomfortable? so instead she asked me to post the gofund me so that many people could donate small amounts of money to help them reach their goal.”

Earlier in the week on Monday, Fox posted to her story asking fans and followers to contribute to a fund for her friend, celebrity manicurist Brittney Boyce’s father, who was recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The internet then collectively slammed the 37-year-old actress for asking for donations rather than covering the costs herself.

“i just obliged her request,” the Jennifer’s Body star continued. “anything she needs from me personally she will ask and i will do it privately. one thing you’re not going to accuse me of is being miserly or lacking generosity.” 

The fund for Boyce’s father has currently raised $11,200 of the $60,000 goal.
