Kal Penn Raises Over $360,000 For Refugees After Receiving Racist Tweet

Kal Penn has raised an incredible amount of money for refugees in response to Donald Trump‘s controversial Muslim ban…and it all stemmed from a racist tweet!

The 39-year-old Designated Survivor actor received a comment from a social media user who told him he didn’t belong in the US.

In response, Kal decided to start a fundraising page for Syrian refugees, all in the name of the man who wrote the comment!

So far, the campaign has raised over $360,000, which will go to the International Rescue Committee.

“I’m speechless…How’s that for showing the world who we are?” Kal wrote on his Twitter.

To donate to Kal‘s refugee fun, head to Crowdrise.com.
