A 7-year-old boy purportedly wrote this letter that was posted by his father, to Cincinnati Bengals punter Kevin Huber, who broke his jaw and possibly cracked a vertebrae last week, courtesy of Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Terence Garvin’s vicious hit that cost him $25,000.
It starts off with “Dear Kevin, I hope you feel better soon,” then devolves into an especially cruel Christmas wish for Garvin…
Per the Huffington Post:
The boy’s father posted the fan letter on Twitter, then removed it after the photo went viral, leading The Bleacher Report to question its authenticity.
In followup tweets, the father sought to backtrack from the letter. “We wish a long, healthy career for Mr. Garvin,” he wrote. “My son wrote the words, but didn’t fully comprehend the implicit meaning.”
He later added: “I thought it was cute, but regret that the letter gained the notoriety it did. I take responsibility, but wish to move on.”
