The Women’s March is being widely mocked online after the organization requested donations of $14. 92 from supporters — and then apologized “deeply” for not realizing it reflected the year Christopher Columbus landed in the Americas.
” We deeply regret the email we sent today. $14. 92 was our average donation amount this week,” the Women’s March tweeted on Tuesday.
“It was an oversight on our part to not make the connection to a year of colonization, conquest, and genocide for Indigenous people, especially before Thanksgiving.”
The request for the $14. 92 had earlier been sent to supporters in an email blast.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether the group’s apology was prompted in part by complaints from people offended by the donation amount.
The apology was instantly ridiculed online. Some wondered if it was satire, while others said that the donation amount had triggered an outcry.
Fox News contributor Ari Fleischer tweeted: “Let’s all chip in and raise the amount to $17.76. Then they’ll really lose their minds.”

“The Women’s March is not a serious organization. If you can’t see the amount of $14. 92 without being triggered, seek help,” political commentator Lauren Chen tweeted.
Dr. Jordan Peterson added: “This is perhaps the most hypocritical virtue-signaling tweet I have ever seen. That is .”
We did it. We finally held the women’s March accountable for Columbus’ crimes,” Nando Vila wrote.
