Despite the success of the Straight Outta Compton biopic on N.W.A, a Kickstarter created to raise funds for a documentary on the late Eazy-E, has failed.
The Kickstarter for A Ruthless Scandal: No More Lies, which was created by Eazy-E’s daughter Ebie Wright, hit the net in mid-September with a financial goal of $250,000.
Following a month of fundraising, the Kickstarter was only able to bring in $2,805 with the help of 63 backers.
With the first Kickstarter campaign now over, Wright has created a second fundraiser for the documentary. This time, the goal is only $100,000.
Thanks to an end date of December 14, the fundraiser will also benefit from an extended fundraising period. So far, the second Kickstarter has raised a little over $1,000.
According to the Kickstarter, Erica Wright is set to direct A Ruthless Scandal, with Tracy Jernagin serving as producer.
Last year, during an interview with DatzHott, Wright described the forthcoming documentary as “jaw-dropping.”
“I’m pretty much gonna touch on every little thing that people wanna know about and things that people don’t even know that they wanna know about yet,” she said. “It’s gonna be very jaw-dropping.”
