Chad Johnson, the outspoken wide receiver who finished his career with the New England Patriots, earned nearly $50 million while in the NFL, and he's sharing the wealth. He recently left a North Carolina waitress a $1,000 tip on a $24 bill.
Johnson, better known by the nickname Ochocinco — a name he adopted for his jersey number 88 while in Cincinnati, tweeted a photo of the receipt from Stephanie's Restaurant in Greensboro, NC, this week to prove his generosity.Next to his $1,000 tip, Johnson left the cheeky message, "I once scored 6 touchdowns in 'Madden' using myself."
Johnson wrote "I love you" below his signature. Though, it's unclear if he meant that for the waitress or himself.
He captioned the photo “Proverbs 11:25.” It's a Bible verse that says, “A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.”
Johnson played 10 of his 11 years in the NFL for the Bengals, where he was one of the best receivers in the world. His brash and bold attitude made him a star on and off the field. Chad Johnson retired in 2011 after a season with the Patriots. He remains a popular social media personality.

Senate Democrats adopted Dont test, dont tell COVID policy to rush through inflation bill: You can bring your ventilator and still vote
What does this matter?
The purported change underscores hypocrisy from Democrats, especially among those who were critical of Republicans for not enacting or abiding by strict COVID mitigation tactics.
In one specific instance, the Washington Post reported in October 2020 that a COVID outbreak among senators could have derailed the confirmation process of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. The Post reported the Senate Judiciary Committee, which was then controlled by Republicans, was considering holding a vote "with ill senators voting from the visitors' galleries above the floor so they can maintain distance."
At the time, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who is now the Senate majority leader, blasted Republicans for moving forward with Barrett's nomination despite the alleged risks.
"The Republican leadership has truly lost touch with reality if it’s contemplating marching COVID-stricken members to the Senate to rush through a Supreme Court nominee who could strip health care from 20 million Americans," Schumer said.
"Instead of engaging in continuously more absurd and dangerous behavior, Chairman Graham should halt this already illegitimate nomination process, and if he refuses, he must put into place a thorough testing procedure that is in accordance with CDC best practices before hearings can take place," Schumer demanded. "Every Senator and relevant staff must have negative tests on two consecutive days and have completed the appropriate quarantining period, and there should be mandatory testing every day of the hearing."
