No good deed goes unpunished.
After the school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas, on Friday, NFL star J.J. Watt offered to pay for the funerals of all 10 people who were murdered—9 kids, and 1 teacher.
That wasn’t good enough for the liberal left. Watt was criticized by former NBA star Stephen Jackson for his offer to help with funeral expenses.
Jackson wrote, via Instagram, “Still got all that hurricane bread people donated might as well”—apparently referencing the $37 million that Watt raised for victims of Hurricane Harvey, which devastated Houston last year.
Jackson added, “All that bread PA Texas would have been rebuilt by now if it was sent to me.”
Hurricane Harvey caused an estimated $200 billion in damage last year—and $37 million, while a tremendous amount of money and a great act of charity, is just a drop in the bucket, as Watt himself has said.
“I apologize that we aren’t able to reach every single person, it’s simply not possible. We’ve rebuilt homes & day cares, provided food & medical care and our work is far from finished! I promise we’re doing the best we can,” Watt posted on social media in February.
Despite criticizing Watt for his generosity, Jackson has not offered to pay for any of the funerals himself.
