By now, we’re sure you’ve seen the video that showed an altercation between former Ravens running back Ray Rice and his fiancée.
Now, Baltimore pizza parlor Hersh’s Pizza is offering a free pizza for anyone who turns in a Ray Rice jersey.
The pizzeria posted the promotion to its Facebook before Rice’s contract was terminated, reports ABC News. The shop ended its post with the hashtag “#CutRayRice.”
The initial Facebook statement read,
The initial post was shared close to 300 times in about three hours. Talk about viral. Hersh’s later announced that the shop would donate $2.70, after Rice’s No. 27, to the House of Ruth for every jersey it received. It also asked for “suggestions for what to do with all the Ray Rice jerseys we collect, since there are only so many we can use for toilet paper.”
Hersh’s manager Nico Bustos explains how the post came about,
Hersh’s Pizza is located at 1843-45 Light Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21230. The shop opens today at 5 pm.
