A GoFundMe page has emerged for the employee who allegedly spat on Eric Trump at a restaurant last Tuesday, Fox News reports, but it’s reportedly unassociated with the woman who was arrested.

Trump was at the cocktail bar Aviary in Chicago when a female server confronted the son of President Donald Trump and allegedly spat on him. The Alinea Group, which owns the restaurant, told Fox News that the employee has been put “on leave” while they investigate the incident.

The GoFundMe page appeared the next day, with a note from someone named Brian who wrote: "My friend allegedly spat on Eric Trump and got fired… I want to make sure she's good to go until she finds a new job, and that she won't have to worry about paying any legal fees etc."

The campaign concluded after raising $5,420 in less than sixteen hours, but according to Block Club Chicago, the fundraiser was “for a woman falsely claiming to be the person who spit on Eric Trump at The Aviary,” though the website declined to name the employee who allegedly spat on Trump.

The GoFundMe organizer told Block Club Chicago that he learned that the woman he created the campaign for is not the woman who was involved, and that he will return the donations.

“I believed her, and I wanted to help, because the Trump administration is putting people in concentration camps, threatening to take our neighbors away, and wreaking havoc,” he said in a statement to Block Club Chicago.

“I’m sorry for misleading folks, but I’m not sorry for trying to support people who stick up for their communities. Most of all, I hope this doesn’t bring us pause when we have a chance in the future to support causes that we believe in.”
