Twitter defends Marvin Harrison Jr. after Georgia memorabilia company sells tasteless photo

When the hit on Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. was made in real-time during the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, many of us thought it was a clear and obvious targeting penalty. After a commercial break, the referees decided it was a clean hit (it was NOT) that  sidelined Harrison Jr. for the remainder of the game.

Well, it seems like a Georgia memorabilia company is trying to reap the benefits of this illegal hit. They are selling a Georgia safety Javon Bullard, (who hit Harrison Jr.), signed photo and Twitter wasn’t having any of it.

See the best reactions from fans and media and the man himself regarding this company trying to collect after Harrison Jr. suffered a concussion.

Orr is trying to get the photo removed and rightfully so, it’s a classless move.

Couldn’t have said it better myself, Darrel.

It’s pretty terrible of Georgia fans to be trying to make a quick buck off a terrible hit.



I see no incorrect statement there.

Harrison Jr. responds


I would be willing to bet that Harrison would love another opportunity to face the Bulldogs.
