Jason Wu Target "Vulture" Says He's Donating Clothes to Charity UPDATE
Now, one half of the couple, Kevin Wills -- AKA DJ Midas -- tells Riptide he never planned to resell the clothes for a profit. Instead he says he plans to sell the clothes at a charity event benefiting Dress for Success.
"I like doing charity stuff," he says. "I like going to the ghetto and passing stuff out of my car."
So a few weeks before the launch of the Jason Wu collection he claims he got an idea to grab as many of the clothes he could with a plan to give them away for charity. Along with his girlfriend he was the first to arrive at Target that morning and says it took them about 40 seconds to load up each cart.The total bill once he was done: Just under $5,300.
Unsurprisingly the rest of the shoppers weren't too pleased, and a mini-fiasco broke out.
"One lady dug her nails into me and made me bleed," he says. "She slammed her cart into my leg."
Wills says he overheard other shoppers talking about plans to resell the clothing anyway, so he didn't feel too bad about his actions. He also says he made sure to leave a few of each item behind, and let some of the more polite shoppers take items they wanted from his cart.
"I was so upset by the way they acted I didn't want to appease them by telling them that what I was doing was for charity."
So now Wills has unveiled his grand charitable plans: a March 4th event at the Stage to benefit Dress for Success.
