R.I.P.

People are coming together in the wake of Alton Sterling's controversial killing to help his family.

On Tuesday, the 37-year-old was shot and killed in Baton Rouge after two police officers pinned him to the ground and fired multiple rounds at him, claiming he was armed.

However, a second video showed that the Louisiana resident wasn't actually holding a gun when the cops shot him.

Alton's death is absolutely devastating, and is made even more heartbreaking knowing that five children are now left without a father.

The victim's oldest son, who is only 15 years old, broke down in tears during a family press conference in the wake of his dad's death.

But, the community is rallying together to support Alton's loved ones.

On Wednesday, writer and actress Issa Rae created a GoFundMe page to raise money directly for Mr. Sterling's family.

The 31-year-old, who stars in the YouTube web series Awkward Black Girl, created the profile to serve as a scholarship fund for his five kids, writing in the description:

While we still can't believe Donald Trump really skipped the Republican Party's presidential debate Thursday night… we aren't surprised he did something to keep himself in the news!!!

Though we are a little shocked he actually did something nice!

The real estate mogul, who had been fighting with FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly earlier in the week, found something useful to do instead of attending last night's debate.

He held a fundraiser for veterans just a few miles down the road in Iowa — and Trump himself donated $1 million to their cause!

Of course, he couldn't do it without being a jackass, but, hey — at least he was being magnanimous too!!

Reading from a list of people who had donated money to vets last night, Trump got to his name and said:

When we suggested voting with your dollars, this isn't what we had in mind…

Memories Pizza was forced to close temporarily after the backlash from becoming the public face of LGBT discrimination under Indiana's new religious freedom bill.

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFoodGIFs

This guy's quest to make a potato salad turned into something much, much bigger!

Either this guy is some sort of Kickstarter wizard/genius, or people just REALLY love potato salad!

Like many others before him, Zack Brown thought it would be fun to create a a joke project on the popular crowdfunding website in order to raise $10 to make his very first potato salad!

But we're guessing he wasn't expecting the HUGE response he got, as he received a whopping $55,492! We're no math experts over here, but that's WAY more than he originally asked for!
