While the folks at CBS will surely make constant references to the sparkling Bible cleats Ray Lewis is wearing during Super Bowl XLVII as he dives on piles, the viewing audience will be too busy thinking about Ray Lewis stabbing people, Ray Lewis spraying deer antler juice under his tongue, Ray Lewis endlessly mugging for the camera and Ray Lewis doing any number of other awful things that terrible people do.
Oh, here’s another one: Ray Lewis doesn’t contribute any of his own money to his charity.
Lewis, who is playing his last game in tonight’s Super Bowl, set up two charities to polish his image after pleading guilty to obstruction of justice in 2000 in connection with a double homicide in Atlanta that year.
He started the Ray Lewis Foundation in 2002, but the group lost its IRS tax-exempt status because it failed to file tax returns for three years.
He opened the similarly named Ray Lewis Family Foundation in 2010.
The organization’s biggest events are giveaways of school supplies and food. But most of the loot is donated by businesses, such as Walmart.
Yes, I know. You’re so disillusioned. Until now, you thought Ray Lewis was an upstanding citizen and a paragon of virtue. Well, I’m sorry to break this to you, but you actually don’t exist. Because every single in the world already knew Ray Lewis is a piece of shit.
