LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is getting married this summer and like most engaged couples, he and his fiancée Rebecca Liddicoat have a wedding registry.
It was reported earlier this month that fans had gotten a hold of Griffin’s registry and were purchasing gifts listed online with Bed Bath & Beyond. About a week later, the registry is sold out, RGIII says.
On Sunday, Griffin sent out a Tweet stating that every item listed on his registry had been purchased and included a photo of him surrounded by empty boxes. “Thank you to the Fans who are helping buy ALL the items from our wedding registry at Bed Bath & Beyond #AppreciateEverything” the Tweet read.
Less than half an hour later people were attacking RGIII on Twitter questioning why the star quarterback was having fans buy him gifts. Griffin pointed out that he never publicized his wedding registry nor did he ask anyone to buy him anything.
I didn't ask the fans to buy me anything. They found it on their own and decided to get what they could. SMH at all these Debbie downers—
