Washington Redskins Players Buys Kid an XBOX For Wearing A Colin Kaepernick Jersey
Redskins players Keith Marshall and Rob Kelley were recently at a Gamestop to purchase something for themselves when they saw something that caught their eye. That’s when they decided to purchase an XBOX for someone else.
Kotaku has the amazing details:
Washington running backs Keith Marshall and Rob Kelley were in the Gamestop store at the Dulles 28 Centre in Virginia on Tuesday. When they saw a kid wearing a Colin Kaepernick jersey then asking how much Xbox One consoles were, the pair got together and bought one for him.
The duo were in the store at the same time as 10 year-old Jaden Watts. They first noticed him when they “complimented him on his Colin Kaepernick 49ers jersey”, the Washington Post reports, before approaching the boy’s grandmother to ask if it was OK if they bought him the console and a game.
The most hilarious part of this story was when Watts’ grandmother initially thought the players were some sort of pedophiles because they wanted to randomly buy a kid a game console.
“The first thing I’m thinking is there’s some pedophile trying to buy my grandson an Xbox,” Watts’ grandmother Saundra said. “So I’m like, I’m going to bust up in there and bust his bubble.”
That wasn’t even the most unbelievable part, as the 10-year-old was asked why he was wearing Colin Kaepernick’s jersey:
Asked by the Post why he was wearing a Kaepernick jersey when he was a self-professed Cowboys fan, Jaden says “I liked how he wasn’t afraid to show what he thought. He risked getting fired, which was a big thing. I wouldn’t even do that, but he did, and I really like him for standing out. I don’t know if people agree with it, but he just doesn’t care what people say and that’s inspired me and probably inspired other people.”
