7-year-old writes hilarious letter supporting Bengals punter Kevin Huber
Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber was destroyed during a punt return on Sunday with what has since been deemed an illegal hit. Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin leveled the unsuspecting Huber up around the neck and shoulders area, leaving him with a fractured jaw and cracked vertebrae. On Tuesday, Huber received a show of support from a 7-year-old fan.
The boy’s father posted the photo you see above on Twitter but has since deleted it. The father wrote on Twitter Wednesday morning that he pulled the picture because he realized some of the message was insensitive. Here’s what it said.
I hope you feel better soon. I am mad at the Steelers because you are my #1 player. I am 7 years old and love the Bengals and Bearcats. I know you played for the Bearcats and Bengals and I love the teams. I hope that Steeler player loses his house and has to live in his car.
Get well soon,
Nicholas Andrew Johnson.
I highly doubt Garvin was offended that a 7-year-old wished for him to go poor, but you can understand why super sensitive people may have been bothered by it. Personally, I thought it was hilarious. Huber already joked about the hit by changing his Twitter avatar to this photo, so I’m sure he appreciated the letter. We’re talking about a 7-year-old kid. Anyone who was appalled by that probably needs to lighten up a little.
