A local man took a shot at Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver when talking to reporters who were covering a fire.

The man said they were catching children who were jumping from a window, and he said “Unlike Agholor” but that would not stop the former USC wideout.

Three people were hospitalized and 10 people were displaced by an overnight fire at an apartment building in West Philadelphia. Say hello to Hakim Law, who told CBS 3 he’s a former firefighter who was walking past the building around 2 a.m., when he saw flames shooting from the windows on the second floor and decided to pitch in.

“I see a guy hanging out the window screaming that his kids were in there,” Law said, per CBS 3. “My man just started throwing babies out the window. And we were catching them—unlike Agholor and all his mishaps.”

Agholor went to Twitter to reach out to the man to give him tickets for his family. This is a big move and I am happy for Nelson, it is not easy to overcome critics, but killing them with kindness helps.
