Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are joining forces with comedian-turned-game show host Drew Carey by offering up $10,000 each as a reward to help Ohio police track down a group of sick pranksters who humiliated an autistic teen and posted the footage online.
The celebrities were left disgusted and appalled after hearing about the actions of a group of twisted high school students in Bay Village, Ohio, who tipped urine, feces and spit over the head of a 14-year-old after convincing him to take part in charity phenomenon the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
On Friday, Carey pledged to donate $10,000 as a reward to help cops find the culprits, and now McCarthy, whose son Evan is autistic, and her new husband Wahlberg have agreed to boost the fund to $30,000.
Model-turned-TV personality McCarthy took to Twitter on Sunday and wrote, “I’m joining Drew Carey’s 10K reward to find perpetrators behind horrible ALS bucket prank. Now it’s 20K!”, while New Kids On The Block pop star Wahlberg followed in his wife’s footsteps shortly afterwards and tweeted, “If this ‘sh**ty’ prank was real… Then I am joining @JennyMcCarthy and @DrewFromTV and offering another $10K to the reward! That makes $30K!”
