*An emotional moment took place on “The View” yesterday that had everyone – including Whoopi Goldberg – breaking down in tears.
Three members of the Philadelphia Eagles, DeSean Jackson, Todd Herremans and Jamaal Jackson surprised a young bully victim whose beating made headlines after it was posted on YouTube. [Scroll down to watch video.]
Accompanied by his mother and stepdad, Nadin Khoury, 13, had just finished explaining how he was beaten, dragged through the snow, hoisted into a tree and hung from a fence by seven of his classmates – one of whom videotaped the incident and posted it online.
At the end of Thursday’s interview, it was revealed that Khoury’s favorite team is the Philadelphia Eagles.
Cue the three Eagles – who took the stage with flowers for the family and heartfelt pounds and hugs for young Nadin – who at this point was moved to tears.
The surprised youngster pulled himself together enough to thank DeSean and his teammates for taking time out of their busy schedule just for him — and to tell DeSean he was his favorite receiver.
“You’re brave, because this happens every day and people are not brave enough to stand up and take this on,” Jackson told the teen.
DeSean then took the Eagles jersey off his back and signed it for Nadin. He told the boy that he had an open invitation to any Eagles game, and all three of the players told Nadin to call them if he has anymore trouble with bullies.
“Anytime ever you need us, I’ve got two linemen right here … my boys are ready to come down,” Jackson said.
