Raising money for a great cause is always good, but it's even sweeter when you do it in the name of a troll… just ask Kal Penn.
The actor and comedian made the ultimate statement Saturday after an Instagram user left a tasteless comment on Penn's post speaking out about the Muslim ban. A user (whose handle was blurred away) told Penn, "because you don't belong in this country you f---king joke"
Penn responded in one of the most clever ways possible, he started a Crowdrisepage collecting donations for Syrian Refugees in the name of the Instagram user who insulted him.
In a statement on Monday morning about the fund, Penn said he hasn't yet heard from the person who send him the message, but his goal is to simply focus on all the positive that has come of this instead.
“There's so much power and beauty in turning something hateful into love. That's what we're surrounded with. It's amazing," he said.
