While players and fans continue to debate the National Anthem protests at NFL games, one Detroit Lions fan found a way to put a positive spin on a horrible situation.
It all started when a fan took a picture of two fellow season ticket holders sitting during the national anthem two weeks ago. He then posted it on Snapchat along with a racial slur.
The Lions confirmed to FOX 2 that the fan no longer will be a season-ticket holder, and isn't welcome in the stadium. However, that doesn’t take back the hurt it caused Stacey Graham.
Enter Lions fan Andy Morse. "When I saw the Facebook message, the Snapchat, that occurred, it really kind after disturbed me deeply," Morse told FOX 2. "When I saw that occur, I kind of felt that I needed to help somehow. I wanted to do something."
So Andy contacted the Lions, and asked to buy the man’s tickets so he could donate them to a different charity every week.
When he informed Stacey, she was overjoyed.
"Tears of joy, tears of joy when I found out he purchased the tickets, and is giving them away to charity," Graham said. “You can give back love and tolerance is really what it is really all about. So I probably will never get an apology, but this is awesome."
