Eagles QB Carson Wentz Slams the Door on Criticism After Tribute to ‘Hunting Buddy’ Dog

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is no stranger to having to come up with the perfect response when faced with adversity.

However, instead of calling an audible after the defense changes formations, this time Wentz found himself having to come up with the perfect response to political correctness on social media.

On Monday night, Wentz, who is also an avid hunter, took to Twitter to wish his “hunting buddy” a happy birthday:

Happy 5th Birthday to Mama Henley! We’ve been through a lot in 5 years. Best dog and hunting buddy I could ask for! pic.twitter.com/HW8DbxTyML

However, not all saw Wentz’ tribute as a benign and harmless gesture. One Twitter user replied to Wentz, cautioning that the pic of the dog with a pile of dead geese, could offend: “As a friend I wanted to quickly highlight that a man in your influential position might cause offence (sic) through the posting of your first picture. I support its sentiment however the context and content of the pic could offend.”

Wentz’ reply was classy:

Appreciate that, but offensive and controversial? Two of the main things I tweet about are Jesus and hunting. 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! https://t.co/3XsxU0kybC
