Penn State safety Jonathan Sutherland took the cliché “killing them with kindness” to a whole new level Tuesday.

Sutherland was obviously not happy to receive what he called a “demeaning” letter from a Nittany Lions alum, but he responded with the utmost class and says he forgives the fan for sending it to him.

“At the end of the day, without an apology needed, I forgive this individual because I’m nowhere close to being perfect, and I expect God to forgive me for all the wrong I’ve done in my life,” Sutherland wrote in a Twitter post.

He added that he appreciates “everyone who has reached out” to show support and that “let this be one of the many examples to us that in the year 2019, people of different cultures, religions, and ethnicities are still being discriminated against, and it needs to stop.”

Sutherland received this derogatory letter from a Penn State alum Monday. In the letter, the alum called Sutherland’s hair “awful” and wrote “don’t you have parents or girlfriends who’ve told you those shoulder length dreadlocks look disgusting and are certainly not attractive?”

Furthermore, the alum wrote, “you need to remember you represent all Penn Staters both current and those alumni from years past. We would welcome reappearance of dress codes for athletes.”
