Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson Gifts His Followers With $1,000 Stimulus Checks

Former NFL star Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, 42, is back to giving out blessings as America continues to regroup during the coronavirus pandemic. After stating that President Donald Trump is “playing games” with Americans, Chad Johnson took matters into his own hands.

On June 23, Chad Johnson announced that he will give away $240,000 worth of stimulus checks the following month. He also questioned whether the $1,200 individuals received from the federal government in April was really enough.

“How the f**k are people suppose to stretch $1200 for 3 months?”

He then promised,

“I’m giving out stimulus checks July 1st if you have cash app since Trump want to keep playing games.”

The former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver kept his word. On Wednesday (July 1st), Johnson asked his followers to send their information so he can send them money at random.

Good morning, i f**king love all of you f**kers & today is July 1st, drop ya cash app, zelle or PayPal, will be “randomly” choosing & blessing folks throughout the day until 5 & that’s on Jesus sandals

After sending several $1,000 to random Twitter users, Johnson’s cash app seemingly stopped working. The father of four posted a screenshot of his cash app account, which informed him that he could not send money because it will exceed his weekly limit of $150,000.

This is Chad’s latest good deed after he gave a generous tip to a waitress at a local Miami restaurant. After making a $37.40 purchase with Havana’s Cuban Cuisine restaurant, Johnson tipped his waitress $1,000. Underneath his signature, he wrote:

Congratulations on re-opening, sorry about the pandemic…hope this helps. I Love You.  

He shared the heartfelt gesture on Twitter alongside the caption,

Proverbs 11:25

Havana’s Cuban Cuisine responded to Johnson’s generosity in a post on Facebook. The restaurant stated:

We would like to thank Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson for his continued patronage. We greatly appreciate your generosity to our employees now during these most difficult times. Many blessings to you and your family. Thank you again!
