Russell Wilson is on the defense — claiming he’s NOT a godless infidel … just because he saw “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
The outspokenly religious Seattle Seahawks QB has been under attack on social media Friday morning … ever since he revealed that he went to a screening of the sexually charged S&M flick on Thursday.
Some of the comments directed at Wilson were harsh:
— “I’m more than a little confused, Russell. I thought you professed to be a Christian.
— “Really? I’m honestly not sure how you can quote bible verses all the time and then say this is a good movie…”
— “Don’t say you represent Christ, and the publicly endorse a moved filled with immorality and sexual violence.”
— “COME ON MAN!!! THAT MOVIE IS MORAL FILTH!!!”
Well, Russell heard the critics loud and clear … and decided to respond with the following statement:
“Saw a movie filmed in the town I call home. Provocative/disturbing no doubt but that does not make me less Faithful. Have a blessed day!”
Then, Wilson doubled down … saying his favorite movie of all time is “Scarface” … the cocaine-centric gangster classic.
“Say goodnight to the bad guy … ”
