2023 has gotten off to a wildly captivating start for Buffalo Bills' free safety Damar Hamlin. Before his team's critical Monday Football showdown with the Cincinnati Bengals on January 2nd, few NFL fans outside of upstate New York knew he existed. But that quickly changed the moment he nearly lost his life during the field of play due to a cardiac arrest. #Damarhamlin trended worldwide as NFL fans and supporters with no interest in football formed a sentimental bond over the well-being of the man who wears jersey #3 for the Buffalo Bills. Since being released from the Buffalo General Medical Center on January 11th, Damar has become a public figure and a symbol of hope for the NFL and its fans. While it isn't known if the 24-year-old will ever return to an NFL field as a player, he was quite visible during Super Bowl weekend.

Damar gave a tear-jerking speech at the NFL Honors award ceremony on Thursday night, where he received a standing ovation for overcoming a near-death experience with such grace. However, now that Damar is healthy, he's no longer beyond reproach. Legendary Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson made that notion very clear when he responded to Damar's fashion choice on Super Bowl Sunday. Damar attended Super Bowl LVII at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, where he sat next to NFL commissioner Rodger Goodell and Donna Kelce (Travis and Jason's Mom). The visual was touching, but Peterson did not take kindly to the fact that Damar wore a coat that displayed a skewed image of Jesus Christ with his face battered. Therefore, he took to social media to express his disdain.

"You should be thanking God son!" AP wrote. "This is Blasphemy!! We all fall short but cmon man! I find this disrespectful!! #grateful #goddid"

The $3,150 jacket that Damar wore is called the "Travis Jesus" and it was designed by Takashi Murakami. Scroll and swipe right to take a look.
