Two Washington Redskins teammates performed a touching deed at a Virginia GameStop —and it was inspired by former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick.
When Keith Marshall and Rob Kelley saw 10-year-old Jaden Watts wearing the jersey of Kaepernick, they had to do something for the woke child. Kaepernick has seemingly been punished for taking a stance against police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem during the 2016 football season.
The men overheard Watts asking his grandmother for the Xbox One as a birthday gift in the Dulles, Va., store. He was pleasantly surprised when he found that the two NFL players were glad to finance it.
But when the 10-year-old asked his grandmom if the men could buy him the Xbox, Watts’ grandmom, Saundra, became suspicious.
“So I go next door, and as I am walking over there I am thinking what pervert wants to buy my grandson an Xbox,” Saundra wrote in a Facebook post. “I am thinking he is going to be in for a rude awakening when I bust through these doors. (I am an advocate for abused and neglected kids).”
