It’s been a tricky period for athletes and their cars.
Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George had to ask for help from social media to find a kid who hit his brand-new whip on the weekend. But it could have been worse – it could have been stolen.
Well, that’s what Philadelphia Eagles defensive back CJ Gardner-Johnson has experienced, as his Kia was stolen on Monday, just two days after the Eagles made it to the NFC Championship Game.
Philly fans are notoriously hard to please. So stealing a football player’s car after a loss would have been understandable, by their standards. But after a win?
CJ has posted a video in which he claims he knows exactly who stole his car, which is great. Fans, on the other hand, seemed more concerned about the fact that he drives (or used to drive) a Kia.
Kia’s are apparently very easy to steal and it’s claimed that thefts have spiked following a viral TikTok video showing how to break into multiple models using a USB cable and a screwdriver.
