A Canadian radio station is offering free first-class plane tickets to celebrities who wish to flee the country as a result of Donald Trump’s win in the presidential election — except Lena Dunham.
Noting Canada’s reputation as quick to help out in a crisis, the sports talk radio station, EXTRA 90.5 offered to “lead the evacuation” of unhappy and displaced celebrities by sponsoring their flight out of the country and providing free lodging in Peterborough Ontario. Tickets to see the Peterborough Petes are also included in the offer.
“We know it’s not easy being famous, living in a free country, and NOT liking the President elect,” Jordan Mercier, one of the station’s hosts, said in a statement. “Our hearts go out to them. We’re happy to open our homes and wallets to help these inconvenienced stars.”
“Just not Lena Dunham,” his co-host Colin Teskey added.
It’s an equal opportunity offer, which the station’s general manager Rob Mise told TheDCNF is actually on the table. Any celebrity is invited to apply for sponsorship, including low-level C list reality stars, no matter their age, race or sexual orientation.
“If you know a celebrity who is looking to flee the intolerable, inadequate conditions in the United States have them contact EXTRA 90.5 FM and we will help them recover and rebuild their lives,” the statement concludes.
The Daily Caller has compiled a list of celebrities who threatened to leave the country if Trump wins.
