Podcaster Donates $10,000 To Teen Targeted Over LGBT ‘Burnouts’

Political commentator Tim Pool recently announced that he sent $10,000 to a 19-year-old Florida man’s legal defense fund after being charged with a felony for doing burnouts at an intersection with LGBT-themed colors in Delray Beach, Florida.

On X, formerly known as Twitter, Pool wrote, “Here’s a headline for the woke cult. I just sent $10k for the homie’s legal defense. He was charged with a felony for burning out as he turned while driving over a cultist flag painting.”

In February 2024, 19-year-old Dylan Brewer surrendered to authorities and was later charged with felony criminal mischief over $1,000 and reckless driving.

Footage obtained by a traffic camera shows Brewer in a black truck with a flag at the intersection committing burnouts, leaving burned rubber across the LGBT-themed mural.


Following such events, the Palm Beach County Human Rights Council (PBCHRC) pushed for law enforcement to label the 19-year-old’s actions a “hate crime.”

“I think a big problem is with our judiciary who doesn’t understand hate crimes are hate crimes, whether or not they fit the specific definition of the law,” PBCHRC founder Rand Hoch said. “There needs to be consequences so people know if they commit crimes like this, they are going to jail, they are going to be fined; they are going to have to suffer from what they did.”

The LGBT crosswalk was created using $16,000 with funding from the PBCHRC and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, according to the Post Millennial.

A fundraiser for Brewer on GiveSendGo has garnered more than $20,000. On the website, it states that such funds do not just support the 19-year-old’s legal defense fund but also defend Americans’ First Amendment rights.

“This fund not only supports Brewer’s legal defense but also champions the fundamental American values of freedom of expression and the right to a fair trial. By contributing, you stand for the principles that underpin our democracy, advocating for a balanced and just examination of the case,” the statement reads.

“Your support not only aids Dylan Brewer but also underscores the importance of liberty and justice in our society,” it continues.
