An NFL fan took to Twitter to sell some J.J. Watt merchandise only to be answered by the Arizona Cardinals player himself.
According to the tweet, Jennifer Simpson was selling a pair of Watt shoes and a jersey to raise money for her grandfather’s funeral. She tagged Watt’s Twitter account with photos of the items for sale.
Watt responded by telling her to keep her items because he would help with the funeral costs. “Don’t sell your shoes and jersey, we’ll help with the funer. I’m sorry for your loss,” his tweet said.
According to the user’s profile, she is a Texans and Astros fan, who before her interaction with Watt had just 70 followers. She responded to Watt’s retweet with an expression of gratitude.
