- RG3 GETS BACKLASH FOR ACCEPTING WEDDING GIFTS FROM FANS -
A few weeks ago Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and his fiancé Rebecca Liddicoat announced they’re getting married on July 6th of this year. Soon afterwards, it… was discovered that the couple had registered at Bed, Bath and Beyond. And it didn’t take long for Redskins fans and Baylor alumni to start shopping to congratulate the couple on their special day. So on Sunday RG3 went to Twitter to thank all his fans for the gifts and blessings.  “Thank you to the Fans who are helping buy ALL the items from our wedding registry at Bed Bath & Beyond #AppreciateEverything,” Griffin tweeted on Sunday afternoon. Along with the message was a picture of the QB in a room filled with packages of gifts from the registry that his fans had purchased and sent to him. But some people were not happy seeing RG3 and Rebecca receive the gift.“The rich just keep getting richer,” and “Something is wrong when the poor buy goods for the rich. Hmmm…..” are some of the responses RG3 got.“Which [is] why I why I appreciate the gesture…..I didn’t ask the fans to buy me anything,” he wrote. “They found it on their own and decided to get what they could. SMH at all these Debbie downers.” Many tweeted that they hoped the couple would donate the goods to a women’s shelter or to families in need. RG3’s response to that: “Because you are rich you are not allowed to receive gifts and any gifts you receive should be donated to charity???? #WOW Smh. It doesn’t matter what somebody like RG3 does, there will be people who criticize. Maybe Griffin should have just ignored the criticism, but the fans who bought the gifts wanted RG3 to have them, not a charity.

  3. kennaberg said: People are so ridiculous. It’s not like the brother asked for them, they offered to buy. I don’t understand what “rich getting richer” have to do with buying someone a gift
