Running back Jeremiah Johnson has gone viral and, although he is a star on the field, it is not necessarily his skills that have made him the talk of the internet.
This Youth Foothall Player who is Only "12" Years Old Has People Confused Af😅🏈 pic.twitter.com/Re15md1I5s— Raphousetv (RHTV) (@raphousetv2) December 12, 2022
Johnson recently won 12U MVP honors at the Youth National Championships in Miami, FL, and of course, picture and video was posted to celebrate. Well, it was the picture and video, not necessarily the honor that garnered this young man the attention of the world. With his mustache and a few tattoos on his right arm, the internet weighed in saying that there is no way that the Fort Worth, TX “pre-teen” could actually be 12-years-old!
One Twitter user wrote in response to @RapHouseTV: “46 at minimum and still drives an Oldsmobile Delta ’88 so he can finish pushing junior through college.”
Another wrote in the same Twitter thread: “Twelve years old with a half sleeve. Ok man.”
Content Creator Joshua Gresham weighed in on Twitter, saying: “12 in what? Dog years???”
One Twitter user became an internet detective, investigating “Johnson-agegate” even further and just couldn’t continue because it was just too funny!
“Bro I really looked into this bc I couldn’t believe it & it just kept getting funnier & funnier,” the social media platform user person tweeted.
Here are just a few more thread comments. And yes, they are funny!
And the user is right, because the comments just kept getting better and better form platform to platform.
On TikTok, one user wrote: “Mustache says grown man, biceps say 12 years old.”
Another demanded to see his birth certificate because it must be a “fake.”
While a different user commented: “He may only be 12 years old, but that mustache says divorced at least twice”
There have been many other football players that have looked much older than they actually were, but most of them, for the most part, were at least in high school. So, do you believe that Jeremiah Johnson is 12 or is this one gimmick where the gig is up?
Sound-off and comment below. We really want to know what you think!
