If we even needed a reason to like Julian Edelman anymore than we already do, we found it. Julian Edelman is, no joke, a real-life superhero yesterday potentially saving countless lives.
After some kid thought it would be smart to post a school shooting threat on Edelman’s instagram , that would be seen by millions, Edelman reported it to his assistant in Boston. What exactly was that threat? Well according to an article written by ESPN, that threat said, “I’m going to shoot my school, watch the news.” That then caught the attention of someone who follows Julian Edelman who then sent a DM to Edelman saying, “Dude, there is a kid in your comment section says he’s going to shoot up a school, I think you should alert the authority.” So in reality, this kid who reported it to Edelman could also be the hero of the story because if he didn’t DM Edelman, who knows if he would of seen it.
Nonetheless, that kid who made the threat got exactly what he deserved, jail time. At least as much as he can get for being 14 years old.
Edelman says he “plans on sending something to the kid who reported it to him” claiming, “he’s the real hero,” according to ESPN.
On behalf of everyone, I would like to thank these two for reporting it and potentially saving a number of lives. You are both heroes.
