Chad Johnson responds to grieving widow on Twitter, flying her to his wedding

Say what you want about some of his antics on and off the field, but Chad Ochocinco Johnson deserves some respect for this random act of kindness.

One of Johnson’s 3,563,678 Twitter followers, @cheryl2958 (Cheryl Minton), has been reaching out to the Dolphins wide receiver over Twitter consistently. One of her tweets wished him and his fiancee, Evelyn Lozada, a good life together after she had lost her husband.

She sent another similar tweet to Chad on July 1 and another earlier on Tuesday — the day before Chad and Evelyn’s wedding. This time Chad responded by inviting the woman to his wedding (each tweet begins with Chad’s response to Cheryl):

Johnson asked Cheryl if she had a passport and when she confirmed, he told her to pack her bags for La Fiesta Del Ochocinco. No other questions asked.

Very classy move by Johnson offering some help to a woman in need. Now all he needs to do is not play Call of Duty during the ceremony like he did during his proposal, and it should be a magical day.

Oh, and Cheryl’s Twitter profile says only that she’s from Franklin, Ohio, and: “I love animals, reality TV and MMA”

God bless that combination of interests.
