The guy who played NFL star Michael Oher in “The Blind Side” says he understands why Oher would have beef with the movie … but says at the end of the day — GET OVER IT!!!!
Oher recently bitched about the movie to ESPN … saying it hurt his NFL career because it set unrealistic expectations — “People look at me, and they take things away from me because of a movie. They don’t really see the skills and the kind of player I am.”
Now, actor Quinton Aaron has responded … saying he understands where Oher is coming from but says the positives that came out of that movie FAR OUTWEIGH the negatives.
“You gotta at some point notice the amount of people’s lives this movie has touched in a positive, encouraging and inspiring manner.”
“At the end of the day bro you are a millionaire, you’re famous, you are a SuperBowl Champ, you have an amazing family that loves you, friends, fans and teammates.”
“Who gives a damn about what people say or think who wanna criticize your game bro, that shouldn’t matter. Somebody is always gonna have something to say that you’re not gonna like.”
He concluded, “So what, you had a couple bad seasons, I believe you’ve got a lot more fuel in the tank so let’s start hashing out some good ones and forget what people think about you. I got your back brotha God Bless!”
