Watch: Broncos’ QB Russell Wilson issues statement in response to allegations of misusing his charity’s funds

Players always want to do something for society. What if a player faces criticism while doing something for society, how will it respond? Russell Wilson faced something similar recently.

Quarterback Russell Wilson had a rough year, drawing much criticism for his poor performance. Something entirely new has been brought to light about him this week.

USA Today reported on Wednesday that Wilson’s “Why Not You?” Foundation had only contributed around 40 percent of its revenues to charity. The remainder had gone into fundraisers and personnel compensation. That’s a serious issue.

Russell’s charity reportedly made $7.5 million in 2021 but only donated $2.8 million.

Wilson addressed the criticisms leveled against his nonprofit in a Saturday video posted on social media.

Particular issues are brought up by the fact that Wilson’s charitable work was cited as a major factor in his selection as the Walter Payton Man of the Year.

It looks like Wilson is making every effort to fix this problem, which is excellent to see since things do not look decent.

Fortunately for Russell and Ciara, the Super Bowl is less than 24 hours away, and more than 100 million people are expected to tune in to see the Eagles take on the Chiefs. Plus, there are a lot of eager Rihanna watchers out there.
