Yahoo! News reported on April 30, 2013, that Chad Johnson adopted a homeless man named “Pork Chop” for two days and took him out for shopping and they also partied in a club.
The former NFL wide receiver took to Twitter to promote his good deeds.
Johnson, who was released from the Miami Dolphins last year, devoted entire weekend (both Saturday and Sunday) to a homeless man named Robert, a.k.a. “PorkChop”. Chad took to his Twitter account to document their adventures together.
In his first tweet Johnson bought a pack of Newports when “PorkChop” asked for beer. Later they were listening to Frankie Beverly and Maze on his iPhone.
He posted a photo of them together. In his next tweet, Johnson felt he should follow ‘The Kardashians’ who cleaned up a homeless guy and take out “PorkChop”.
He bought some new clothes at Urban Outfitters and finally took him to a nightclub called Cameo. In his last tweet, Johnson said that he thought he could make the night a very special one for his new friend.
Former New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver, Chad Johnson, always known to promote himself started his own reality shows and legally changed his name to Chad Ochocinco.
When he found himself unattached to any team, he changed his name back to Chad Johnson.Now his escapades with the homeless man brought him little attention again.
