    JJ Watt Willing To Pay For Shooting Victims' Funerals

    J.J. Watt's humanitarian efforts know no bounds.

    The Houston Texans' star defensive end is willing to pay funeral expenses for the 10 people killed in Friday morning's mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

    At least 10 people died and 10 more were injured after a 17-year-old suspect opened fire. Most of those killed were also students.

    Watt, who has been known for his humanitarian efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, is now offering to pay for victims' funerals, a source told KHOU 11 in Houston. KHOU is a TEGNA affiliate, which is part of Gannett.

    Shortly after Friday morning's shooting, Watt tweeted, "Absolutely horrific."

    Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted how grateful she was for Watt's generosity: "Thank you, @JJWatt for going above and beyond for the families of Santa Fe, Texas. I love you."

    Guy has done one hell of a job over last year. His future looks bright.

    I hope he comes back strong from injury.

    Attention whore. I applaud him for helping people, but he always likes to announce it and toot his own horn. He wants the positive P.R. How much is a funeral - $10k? 10 people dead, so it will cost him $100,000 or so. Big deal. He's worth 3 or 4 hundred million. Drop in the bucket.

    True you are not suppose to announce stuff like that, he wanted attention and making it about himself

    Anyway those families not responsible for those funerals, the schools will pay families dearly for this

    Good job but too much ego in it

    J. J. Watt = shill being used to disarm American

    No one actually died at the school.

    These "shootings" are FEMA active-shooter drills, complete with mock victims who are paid to cry for the news camera.

    These "shootings" use a bunch of crisis actors. You can view the release form they have to sign by going to fema.gov.

    J.J. Watt is a shill who has taken the oath and is now being used by the power elite to disarm America. Watt doesn't care whether or not you can protect your family. He wants you to turn in your gun, watch football, and cheer for him when he scores a touchdown.

    The NHL is now being used in a similar manner. The league will be awarding the Stanley Cup to the Golden Knights on Wednesday, June 13 so that we have something to cheer about after the faux shooting at Mandalay Bay.

    J.J. Watt is a great overall guy. I mean the type of person that seems to do everything you would hope a young athlete to do. After the Hurricane he raised thousands of dollars to help the city of Houston, and now after a firefighter lost his life, Watt showed another act of kindness, for Mitch Lundgaard a firefighter by donating 10,000 dollars.

    Watt, a native of Wisconsin donated 10,000 dollars to Lundgaardís go fund me account. Lundgaard, a 14-year veteran of the Appleton Fire Department, was killed by a gunman at a downtown transit center after responding to a medical emergency.

    The gunman was eventually killed after hurting a couple others, but Lundgaard put everything on the line for his force and his family.

    Watt now, is trying to help by donating to a great cause.






    This is what NFL players do when we do not pay attention. If Lily Zhao was not paying attention no one would have known he donated the money except the family. That is a great gesture. Thanks J.J. for being a great role model.

    Media coverage of shootings is such bullshit - they forgot to mention that someone with a gun stopped a shooter at the synagogue in California before he killed eve more.
