While the wedding will be private, somehow Griffin’s fans found the couple’s wedding registry and began sending them gifts. So he Tweeted his thanks posting a photo of himself with boxes from all of the presents.
“Thank you to the Fans who are helping buy ALL the items from our wedding registry at Bed Bath & Beyond.”
Bad move. Evidently, Griffin has been hit with criticism from followers and fans who feel he shouldn’t be receiving gifts or should be giving them to charity since he is a millionaire. Griffin is a Heisman Trophy winner who signed a four-year contract with the Washington Redskins worth $21 Million.
“I didn’t ask the fans to buy me anything,” he responded via Twitter. “They found it on their own and decided to get what they could. SMH at all these Debbie downers”

Do you think it’s ok for an athlete to accept gifts from fans? Or should they donate them to charity?
