A GoFund Me page has been launched for the heroic father who attacked the shamed USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar on Friday in court.

The “Show support for Randall Margraves” page made almost $10,000 in under three hours from more than 200 supporters. The initial goal was just $1,000.

The person responsible for the fundraiser, identified as co-worker Aaron Pangborn, said that it was set up “to help a brother and friend in need.”

Supporters praised Margraves’ actions and said any father would have done the same thing.

“From one Union Family Man to Another. Proud of you Brother, Too bad you didn’t get a few licks in,” Cory Mara said on the site.

“As a father of 2 girls, the video made me cry. I would do the same. God Bless you and your family,” Robert Wykoski added.

On Friday, Margraves attacked Nassar after he listened to his two daughter’s victim-impact statements, which outlined the sexual abuse they endured from Nassar.

He called the disgraced doctor a “son of a bitch” and jumped at him before officers tackled him and arrested him.

He faced a charge of contempt of court but was let go without penalty after he apologized for his behavior.
