Eagles QB Carson Wentz Forced to Defend Hunting Dog Picture After Internet Trolls Attack

Twitter is the WORST.

Carson Wentz was just trying to wish his dog a happy birthday. 

In a simple tweet sent by one of the NFL’s most overtly-wholesome players, Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, publicly celebrated the birthday of his bizarrely-named dog Mama Henley. 

If you can’t imagine how something like this could create a controversy, then you haven’t spent much time on Twitter. 

While most of the responses to Wentz’s tweet were positive, some people took issue with all those dead birds. 



Wentz later tweeted a defense of the picture. “Two of the main things I tweet about are Jesus and hunting,” he wrote. “That’s what I’m passionate about and that won’t ever change! When you love something, you talk about it! Stay convicted about it and don’t worry what others think!”

Wentz is indeed an avid hunter. When the Eagles were on a bye earlier this season, he busted out the camo and hung out in a tree stand. 

He’s also shared videos of some wholesome bird killing. 

Wentz must be used to setting of this kind of firestorm by now. Earlier this year, he took a rash of shit from fans after responding to the mass shooting in Las Vegas with a tweet about the need for Jesus. 

Combining the issues of religion and gun violence into one tweet, perhaps predictably, made some people mad. 


For his own good, Carson should just log off.
