New York based payment and social app Venmo has made headlines recently thanks to people taking advantage of the platform's social aspects. Many users of the app have taken to 'trolling' public figures such as Sean Spicer and Kellyanne Conway by paying and requesting payments for various reasons through the app.
Internet trolls seem to be shaking down White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer for money on payment app Venmo, while others are treating him like a charity case and sending him donations. It appears Spicer has finally become aware of the action — his Venmo account (or one that appears to be his) is now set to private. However, screenshots posted on Twitter show people paid Spicer for things like Dippin' Dots — a reference to his bizarre four-year history of disgruntled tweeting on the ice cream snack — and a "donation to get ur hairline back." Others didn't want to throw some cash Spicer's way, so instead they asked him for money. One person requested Spicer pay up for "anxiety meds because your boss is a lunatic."
