If you follow former Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson on Twitter, you know all about the way he loves to reach out to his fans.
From offering to buy his followers McDonalds to challenging them in FIFA, Ochocinco interacts with his audience like few others on Twitter.
This week, he asked his followers how their Friday was going when one Twitter user, Chris, informed Johnson that he was being evicted.
Eviction❓Show me the notice I’ll take care of it. https://t.co/3eIXAukS4n— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) February 22, 2019
Johnson asked for the notice, and Chris sent it in a tweet that has since been deleted.
An hour later, Chris posted a screenshot of a $1,500 payment into his PayPal account, courtesy of No. 85.

But if you give a man a fish, you only feed him for a day. So Johnson came up with a solution for any issues that Chris might run into down the road.
“tell your landlord next time WE fall behind on rent to play me in fifa for the balance” https://t.co/UFQhvh1ndu— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) February 22, 2019
If a story about Chad Johnson doesn’t include a FIFA challenge, does it really count?
But stories like this are why Johnson is a fan favorite. Now, after helping Chris keep his home, he has at least one die-hard fan for life.
