Twitter user “DennisKBerlin” has 20,000 followers, calls himself an Antifa advocate on his profile, likes football, good wine and techno. Berliner has amassed a sizable fan base on the social media platform while always seeming unfair to her – but she’s also constantly under fire for her approach to controversial topics.
Now he has come under criticism again. The reason is something he recently started Fundraising campaign on the “GoFundMe” page. It’s about Rammstein.
As DennisKBerlin writes, he’s there to collect “help for Rammstein lawyer victims.” Unfortunately, he was contacted by the first follower, who “received a post about Rammstein during reporting,” according to a text posted over the weekend.
And: “It is an intolerable situation for victims of sexual assault to be silenced while perpetrators celebrate.”
What is the goal?
Donations should help support the legal pursuer. If more money is raised than needed, “the excess amount will be used to help other victims of this case, which will happen over the next few days”.
People immediately started donating: as of Monday morning, more than 400 people had pulled out their credit cards, and more than 8,000 euros had been raised. The original fundraising goal was reached on Sunday, after which Denniskaberlin deleted his tweet referencing the fundraising campaign.
“I deleted the Go fund me tweet because last night we reached our goal and money is still coming in. Unfortunately, I can’t end up funding myself, so I’ll have to remove the link somehow.”

Who is threatening?
At the same time, he pointed out that there are clearly those who don’t like his fundraising: “Unfortunately, a campaign is being waged against me,” he wrote.
The methods were “disgusting”: he received threats by email and direct message, and several times the collection was allegedly fake.
