This NFL Player Puts Patriotism In Action With This Classy Move – But His Social Media Fans Might Disagree


NFL football player DeAngelo Williams has a reputation for some impressive moves on the field. However, this recent, off-field move to honor a Marine has given his fans an elevated respect for the running back.

On Monday, Williams tweeted a picture of a man, dressed in uniform, next to a close-up of a business class ticket.

The Carolina Panther also shared the image on his Facebook account.

“He doesn’t know it yet but he will be sitting in this seat when he boards the plane I always give up my 1st class seat! #isalutethetroops,” Williams posted.

Many Twitter followers were quick to praise Williams for his act of generosity, saying things like, “Very cool,” “LOVE this,” and “classy move.” Others claimed Williams was being somewhat “showy” for sharing his thoughtfulness with the world. The most interesting and unexpected response, however, were numerous people claiming the Marine was actually posing. FB comments

In response, many Facebook and Twitter followers encouraged the irate commenters to keep things in perspective: FB comments3

I’ll bet the football player didn’t expect this kind of response when he chose to share the photo on social media… whether the Marine is posing or not, there is no doubt: Williams has his heart in the right place.
