HOLLYWOOD – It was revealed today that Mickey Rooney‘s warring family are setting up a Kickstarter scheme in order to defray costs from his funeral arrangements.
A source close to the family, who have been cut out of the late comedy actor’s will, said that the family were angry and no one was willing to actually pay for the funeral.
They are all big Zach Braff fans and so they thought why not do a Kickstarter and that way all the people who loved Mickey so much could have an opportunity to chip in and help with the costs.
Pledges of as little as $15 will receive a ‘I Helped Bury Mickey Rooney’ t-shirt; $20 a t-shirt and baseball cap; for a $100 dollars a pledgee can come to the funeral and $500 will give the loyal fan the opportunity to be a pall bearer. A special deluxe pledge of $1000 and above will allow the mourner to throw themselves into the grave and lie on top of the coffin screaming ‘Bury us both. I just can’t go on.’
