Shannon appealed for help to raise $10,000 for medical costs in the crowdfunding page created on the same night Morgan was admitted.
‘Chris Morgan has suffered a stroke,’ Shannon wrote. ‘Any monetary assistance provided will be put toward helping Chris in his recovery.’
By midnight the page had $110.
Morgan went viral after being captured ranting at customers inside at the Bagel Boss shop in Long Island.
He shouted at strangers who he believed were making fun of his height and how women were not attracted to him.
Then in August, he was seen on video being handcuffed by police officers for swinging a small bat at people.
He was then taken to a hospital where he underwent a psych evaluation.
His short temper has since carried a long way, as Morgan was scheduled to box against Mets legend Dykstra in Atlantic City in September.
