Nadin Khoury is a 13-year-old Pennsylvania boy who made headlines when videos were posted to YouTube of him being violently bullied by a pack of seven boys ranging in age from 13 to 17. The ladies of “The View” invited him and his family on the show to raise awareness about bullying, but little did he know there was a surprise in store.
Philadelphia Eagles players DeSean Jackson, Jamaal Jackson and Todd Herremans surprised the boy and his family — causing all of them (and us at home) to start crying. DeSean tells Nadin that he’s brave, and that if “anything ever happen again, you let us know, we got you.” He then signed his jersey and gave it to the awe-struck boy. The surprise starts around the 11-minute mark.
The players are also getting games passes for Nadin and his family for next season. DeSean later tweeted, “Nadin is the real deal. He’s doin’ his best.” Herremans chimed in with, “Thank you to the ladies of #TheView for havin us on to surprise our fellow #eagle Nadin!” and Jamaal added, “Big s/o to Nadin, your a true beacon of light for so many that has dealt
with this issue. Your my hero for standing up and speaking out. Much
love and respect for you” and tweeted the below picture.
Awww. We love it when athletes are awesome.
