Just wanted to update: they came through! I am unable to remove my comment below but they did come through.
It still makes me a little bit sad sometimes when I see updates about I Am Divine and remember that I never got the perk I was promised. It has made me think twice about contributing to Kickstarter projects offering similar perks. I am glad to have contributed to the film, I just wish I could have gotten what I signed up for. :(
Not to continue my fight with a pig where everyone gets dirty,
But just to end it, and my moving on, my last thing I will say on this...
I have sent a letter to John Waters, the man we all love, and have explained what is going on with this campaign and all the wrongs that this, Jeffrey Schwarz, filmmaker is attempting to do the 998 supporters who helped fund this movie that is already looking like a success.
I can imagine that conversation,
And I hope it comes true.
Hey Jeffrey, you want to come and offer your investors something because you realize you screwed us, and understand why I, those who have spoke, and those who are just pissed without saying anything because it is what it is... I too can forgive and forget.
But your attitude stinks right now, and I hope you get called out by someone who you respect, such as Mr. Waters, because you certainly don't have any respect for me and your other small donation investors.
So yes Jeffrey Schwarz;
You are a criminal as you stated; if you do not provide the perks you offered or give us our money back.

On the heels of good news, we have some not-so-good news... imdb.com will not allow us to post all the donors, as there are too damn many of you (almost 2,000)! We are sorry that we won't be able to offer that perk to everyone promised.
However, we are busily setting up the credit roll for the movie itself, and once that's ready we'll get it up on our website, as well. Your names will still be in lights at SXSW and beyond!

Thanks for being a thoughtful backer and a part of the Kickstarter community. Apologies again that you’ve had a bad experience -- we hope that it’s resolved soon.
$5 more dollars coming from your favorite candy making shitkicker! Put it towards them cha cha heels you've been eyeing.
Thank you for giving the world the opportunity to be part of this most awesome project!
Just cause you got those big udders doesn't mean you are sumthin' special...get the hook! Go make us a movie!
@Heather/Leslee I believe they'll let the folk know when the time (of puttin' names in the credits) comes and you'd have to confirm via emails what name you'd want them to put in there. ;-)
I have the same question as leslee. I backed to get my girlfriend's name in the credits. Can this happen?
I just backed, but want to do so in the name of a friend. Is this possible? I want his name in the credits!!
GOD I WANTED THAT GRINDHOUSE SET so I only gave you 5 dollars at first and then I was like BUT GOD I LOVE PAPER DOLLS.
Backed you last time 'round, and feel it's my duty to back you again -- your Facebook page has been my go-to source for shits and giggles these past months. If your postings are anything to go by, your film will surely do Divine justice!
You just got money from me, COWWW!!! Good luck!
Backed and plugged! *giggity*
