Emmanuel Acho is going to prom after losing a Twitter challenge.
The Eagles' Emmanuel Acho made an interesting decision on Thursday. Approached with a direct message on Instagram, a fan asked Acho if he would take her to prom if she got 2,000 retweets on Twitter.
Acho thought about it and offered a steeper challenge: 10,000 retweets, and he would do it.
The linebacker apparently thought this feat would be a lot more difficult than it turned out to be. He told the fan that he was going to Hong Kong for a week, and that she had a whole week to get the retweets.
Just a few hours later, the challenge had been met, leaving Acho, a man of his word, to tweet the following:
Impressive. Never again will I open up an Instagram DM... So, where do you buy a corsage?!— Emmanuel Acho (@thEMANacho) January 9, 2015
The fan has since protected her Twitter account, but you can see a screenshot of her original tweet here.
A lesson for all: Don't open Instagram direct messages, or you'll end up going to high school proms.
