Former NFL star and current Montreal Alouette player Chad Johnson made headlines Sunday after he tweeted about an act of kindness.

Johnson left a $300 tip for a server on a $351.92 bill, simply because “Sundays are slow.”

In addition to the tip and the message, he also included “I LOVE YOU” at the bottom.

Johnson tweeted a picture of the receipt:

His act of kindness touched many people, including someone who had tweeted about contemplating suicide until seeing what Johnson did.

Despite the massive tip he left, many people took to Twitter to call out Johnson’s math skills.

While he very likely could have written his tip incorrectly, the receipt clearly says $300.92, and he only added the $300. The bill should have totaled $652.84.

    The reason I am responding to this story especially is for that it is the holidays and we all need a lot of cheering up with the HELL ON EARTH situations goings on. But this too has to be said. Channel 11 news in the morning from 5 to 9am dropped much ratings when the soul ratings getter was on vacation or out sick and she does deserve a break.

    I am referring to Linda Church. Lets face it. She is tall, statuesque, easy on the eyes and for sure a ratings getter; which is what TV news has always been about. But make no mistake this tall stunning blonde is no dummy. She is experienced, educated and knows her stuff in being a top notch meterologist.

    She knows how to keep viewers the way she carries herself with sex appeal and class.

    Although there are some on pix11 morning news that too are classy and respected; Linda Church is for sure holder of the torch of sex appeal and class.

    This is easily followed by Jill Nicolleni, Tiffany McElroy, Laura Tehue, Lisa Mateao, Kirsten Cole (when she is not sticking up for stupidity with cat calls—Leave that story alone Kristen; it will kill your career). And of course the best of the female anchors that should still be there and that is Lynn White.

    I have no respect for Suck-Sukanya Krishian for I smell phony, BS with her. When it comes to the demostrations when male blacks being shot down, she seemed more partial towards the police and less sensitve with the families who lost their loved ones. She is from Staten Island so that should tell everyone much who knows and live in the tri-state area for years. I believe Kristen Cole, and the two other blondes show be with Kori Chambers as the new team of male and female pix11 morning news anchors.
