Derek Carr Ripped on Twitter For Tweet About Kid Saving For College By Recycling (TWEETS)


I bet it seemed like a good idea at the time.

A 7-year-old boy in Orange County saved a whopping $10,000 for college by recycling.  He had been doing it since he was just 3 1/2 years old.

“We had gone to the center with a couple of bags, and he really loved the actual act of putting all the cans and bottles into the machine and getting the money for it, and that kind of got him hooked,” described Damion Hickman, Ryan’s father.

“I’ve recycled 200,000 cans and bottles,” Ryan said.

“If it’s me, my dad and my mom and my grandma doing it at the same time, one bag will be gone like in, let’s say, two minutes,” Ryan said.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr took to Twitter on Thursday to praise the kid for saving money by recycling.  He also delivered a message that hard work pays off, but social media took it as something else and ripped him for it.
