A West Point cadet tried to crowdfund money to bring a porn star to the academy’s winter banquet

A cadet at West Point attempted to crowdfund money to cover travel fare and hotel fees so that his favorite adult film star could be his date to the service academy’s annual winter banquet.

Over the weekend a United States Military Academy student launched a GoFundMe page titled “Help Me Bring Diamond Foxxx To YWW,” referring to West Point’s Yearling Winter Weekend, which is held at the service academy in upstate New York.

“Diamond Foxxx agreed to go to Y dubs with me if I can pay for her plane ticket and hotel room,” reads the GoFundMe page. “Problem is I’m on the yuk payroll and I have no money. Please help a young boy’s dream come true.”

A 2008 West Point graduate and former Army officer who donated to the cadet’s cause told Task & Purpose that the page administrator was no longer accepting donations, which topped off at $370 dollars.

The reason? He apparently got called out for his creative use of crowdfunding.

“Some cadets and officers were discomforted by the effort to bring Diamond Foxxx to YWW, so I was advised by those with much higher rank than me to discontinue the campaign and inform the actress that I can no longer bring her,” reads a message from the cadet to the former officer, who wished to remain anonymous since he’s actively job-hunting and doesn’t want his name to appear on a Google search with the words “West Point” and “porn star.”

A screenshot of the message was shared with Task & Purpose.
