GoFundMe created to help ‘Mighty Ducks’ actor Shaun Weiss

A friend of actor Shaun Weiss — best known for playing Greg Goldberg in “The Mighty Ducks” films — has set up a GoFundMe account for the star after his recent arrest for residential burglary.


Drew Gallagher recently opened up to People about his friend Weiss, saying that while the former child star isn’t “blameless,” the public should attempt to show a bit more compassion.


“There’s not a blameless Shaun Weiss here, he is definitely to blame for a lot of stupid s–t he does,” Gallagher said. “But if you were to spend any time with him you would have a drastically more compassionate understanding of what he was about.”


“He’s sick, he’s mentally ill,” Gallagher went on about the actor. “He’s just sick and everybody gives up on him.”


Gallagher describes Weiss as “the nicest, softest, sweetest human being,” adding, “he’s like a brother to me. I won’t abandon him.”


Drew also said Weiss’ mental health issues are a large part of the problem.


“All Shaun wants to do is stand on stage and make people laugh,” he shared. “He’s one of the funniest comedians you’ll ever meet, he’s sharp, [he’s] witty, he doesn’t take himself too seriously. He understands the dire situation he’s in. The reality is there’s something where our brains go right, his brain goes left.”


Gallagher’s GoFundMe is looking to raise $25,000 for Weiss, to help offset the cost of his bail and future rehab expenses. The account has raised over $4,500 thus far.


Weiss, who had been arrested for public intoxication in August 2018, allegedly broke into a man’s garage in Van Nuys, California, and bashed in his car windshield, according to the Marysville Police Department.


Cops claim Weiss was under the influence of methamphetamine at the time of the incident.
