It was a tough weekend for J.J. Watt after he took to social media and announced to the world that his beloved grandmother had passed away.
The Houston Texans defensive end posted a message Sunday about the passing of his great-grandmother saying: “Rest peacefully beautiful soul. Thank you for being the guiding light of our family for so many years. 101 years is a truly remarkable run. We love you Great-Grandma. You will be forever missed.”
Then a Twitter user with the handle “MAMA_NISHIA” decided this was a grand opportunity to take a shot at Watt by replying, “Missed like those Hurricane Harvey funds,” clearly taking a shot at the star’s distribution of Harvey-related funding that was raised following the 2017 hurricane.
Watt saw that tweet, and instead of firing back with more ignorance, he took the high road with his response, saying, “Thank you for being so considerate on a post about the death of my great-grandmother. If you care to take even half a second to click on my page, you’d see the top “pinned” tweet (since August) that explains exactly where/how the funds are being used. Have a great day.”
