Parsons tweeted, “Universal Studios is a rip off, man!! You gotta pay for 3 different parks?! Where is the love for the people?!”

Furthermore, the Cowboys star compared the prices at Universal Studios to those at Hersheypark in Pennsylvania, his home state. Parsons claimed that he paid around $250 per person to access all three parks at Universal, while Hersheypark only cost him approximately $85 for the same experience. 

This stark difference in pricing seems to have exacerbated his frustration, as he expressed his preference for Hersheypark’s affordability.

“It’s still like 250 a person lol I’m used to Hershey park 85 bucks get you all the rides and the water park!!!”

However, not everyone sympathized with Parsons’ complaints. Some Twitter users criticized him for complaining about the price, pointing out that he makes millions of dollars as an NFL player. One fan wrote, “You’ve seen the prices to Cowboys games, my guy? Respectfully as a Cowboys fan, where’s the love for the people.” 

Another fan echoed this sentiment, emphasizing that ticket prices for sports events can be exorbitant. They wrote, “Just think about paying $1000 for two seats. Waiting all season to see your favorite players in basketball & they sit out for time management. Thieves everywhere.”

A third fan took a more personal jab at Parsons, stating, “I’ve never seen a millionaire cry about the price of stuff as much as you… last time it was a $200 haircut lol.” It suggests that his complaints may not be well-received by those who view him as having the means to afford such expenses easily.

Micah Parsons’ public criticism of Universal Studios’ pricing structure has sparked a debate on social media. While some fans sympathize with his frustration over high theme park prices, others argue that as a professional athlete, he should be more understanding of the costs associated with entertainment.
