Since his announcement unleashed a social media backlash against AJ he later confirmed it’s not a joke, and that he is serious. Why? Because “you know what’s better than NFL money? More money.” There you go, some people apparently can’t get enough of those greens.
We’ve heard of celebrities driving for Uber before, and it’s no big news to be honest. But to publicly admit you’re doing it for money, that is quite impressive for the least. Deadmau5 did it for fun and, of course, so he could brag about his McLaren 650S.
They do it in Dubai with all sorts of special offers now and then, but it’s probably the first time the celebrity is the one to ask for it. Honestly, is the NFL cutting salaries for some unknown reason or what?
Until somebody solves that mystery, you might want to know that Anthony Joseph Francis will be driving his white Dodge Charger. In case you ever need a special kind of ride home, now you know what to do.
People ask me why would you want to be an @uber driver if you play in the NFL... You know what's better than NFL money? More money.— A.J. Francis (@AJFrancis410) April 23, 2015
We do wonder, however, whether celebrities are getting some extra cash for doing it or they earn the same amount of cash like every other Uber driver.
