The Jerk Store called…’: Journo who called cops over toothbrush learns he’s giving away vacations
As Twitchy reported earlier this week, award-winning multimedia journalist David Leavitt tweeted that he was “shaking still” after calling the police when a Target manager refused to sell him an electric toothbrush for one cent. “The police officer verified the price tag and told me I could take them to court and that she’d be a witness,” he tweeted.
We’re guessing Leavitt will sue Target — he seems like that kind of person — but in the meantime, meme-maker Carpe Donktum set up a GoFundMe to send the manager, #TargetTori, on vacation. People have donated around $14,000 so far, and Leavitt claims he’s “giving away vacations.” He already gave away his sense of shame, so why not?
I’m giving away vacations. Who’s next?

Suing you for false advertising

David…. do you fully intend to give away vacations?
— The Hef (@GatewayHef) January 19, 2020
You're advertising vacation give-aways. If you don't give away a vacation, I'm going to have to call the police and a lawyer. Let me speak to your manager. What?! Your mom's not home?!
— c.j. (@neuropsycj) January 18, 2020
You promised free vacations. I expect you to honor that with an all expense paid trip or I’m calling the police!
— MikeNM (@MikeNM) January 19, 2020
You'd better be running this give away in accordance with all applicable laws plus any I can misinterpret in my own favor, David.

You’re a weird dude.

Once upon a time, America was a land of strong women and real men. We conquered this land and turned it into an example for the world to follow. We put men on the moon and fought against ancient empires and won. We were amazing. Now, we seem like a nation of Twitter pussies.

Cant afford a toothbrush but giving away vacations?
— Vinnie (@vstar53) January 18, 2020
Now he’s giving away vacations but can’t afford a toothbrush or to go to the dentist!
Don’t get too excited if you win. You may be spending the weekend with David in his studio apartment (bring your own toothbrush!!)

No, you embossed carbuncle.
It's because of you, socially well-adjusted people who understand retail, interpersonal communication and common decency felt the need to send someone who didn't deserve your disrespect on vacation.
— Grant McAuley (@grantmcauley) January 18, 2020
I don't know, dude. Why don't you call the police, to see if they're interested?
I mean, that's what you usually do.
— Dean Gloster (@deangloster) January 18, 2020
@CarpeDonktum already gave the girl you harrassed $18,000 for a vacation. Carpe is the true hero…makes me smile the biggest smile so everyone can see my beautifully brushed teeth.

Hey check it out, he's taking credit for @CarpeDonktum's vacation GoFundMe just like he does with journalism!

A HUGE thank you everyone who donated!
Though it often seems like it is impossible to see eye to eye on anything anymore… I think we can all agree that David is a real asshole. https://t.co/XcQBvuNVmE
