Jesus and hunting.

Those are two of the most important things to Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, and he’s not hiding or changing that for anyone.

So when a follower called him out for a tweet that might offend some, Wentz didn’t waver.

The tweet

Monday, Wentz posted a tweet wishing his dog a happy fifth birthday.

The tweet was accompanied by two photos: one of the dog standing over dead geese after a hunt, and one of the dog as a puppy.

Potential offense?

One of Wentz’s many followers replied to the tweet, warning the quarterback that the picture with the geese might offend his followers.

Apparently, this person is speaking for those who are against hunting.

“As a friend I wanted to quickly highlight that a man in your influential position might cause offence through the posting of your first picture. I support its sentiment however the context and content of the pic could offend,” the user wrote to Wentz.

Wentz’s response

Wentz politely, but firmly, dismissed any calls for him to filter himself for anonymous social media followers.
