Woman Shocked By What Jeff Foxworthy Did Behind Her Back

Woman Shocked By What Jeff Foxworthy Did Behind Her Back

People often think of celebrities as stuck up or snobby, egotistical jerks who think they’re above us “normal” people. And there are plenty of celebrities more than happy to fulfill that stereotype. But then there are others, who surprise us. And Jeff Foxworthy appears to be in the latter category. I’ve always heard he was a good and kind man. He’s much more than that.

Robin McFadden lives in John’s Creek, Georgia and had to stop by the grocery store. She had her three sons with her when she went inside Publix, a southern grocery chain. She was stressed and tired, especially once her kids began to act up a little, which kids always do when you are exhausted like that.

“I was coming from my son’s basketball game with my three sons and decided to go coupling at Publix in John’s Creek,” she said in an interview with WAGA. “I was at the register and between me worrying about my items and the kids fussing, I didn’t even know that Jeff Foxworthy was standing behind me.”

When it came time to pay, she made a horrifying realization: she didn’t have enough money. She was mortified and didn’t know what to do. She had done the math wrong while shopping and was about $25 short. People in line behind her were impatient and she was undoubtedly feeling even more stressed and embarrassed. “My total was off from what I calculated,” she said. “I tried to calm down the kids when I heard someone ask, ‘How much is she short?’”

It was then that she turned around and realized that the famous comedian was standing behind her. You can imagine her shock when she realized who it was.

She could only gasp, but Foxworthy was already jumping into action. “He laughed, walked around me, put his card in the machine and said ‘watch this,’” she said. “I told him that he was gong to make me cry, gave him a hug, thanked him and took the photo!”

McFadden then asked if she could take a picture with Foxworthy, who happily agreed. “He was such a great guy and I was so happy and lucky to have met him,” she said. She also said that she thought the encounter might be “good karma” as she had just helped out a friend the week before. “I was elated,” McFadden said of her brush with the celebrity. “I had never been that close to a celebrity.” See… good things do happen to good people when they least expect it.

The kids were restless and look who was behind me. He paid for my order when I wasn't looking! I love ❤ Jeff Foxworthy!

She shared the photo, as well as what Foxworthy had done for her, on Facebook where the story quickly went viral. And commenters applauded the story as well.

“Wow! I am amazed that the media showed a white man treating a black woman with kindness, without trying to put a spin on it,” one person wrote at CBS News. “There is hope for a great America yet!” “Jeff is a down to earth great dude!” another person said.

Here are some things you probably didn’t know about Foxworthy. He’s an incredible businessman and has invested his money in a number of businesses. He also does a LOT of ads for television. He used to sell Redneck Barbecue Sauce, which was actually very good. That turned into Jeff Foxworthy Grillin’ Sauces. He also does Jeff Foxworthy Beef Jerky. He’s been on a number of shows including Shark Tank. Foxworthy also does voice work.

Foxworthy invested some of his vast fortune into an expanse of land in Harris County, Georgia, just outside of Columbus. His property adds up to about 3,000 acres and in 2012, he legally granted a “conservation easement” on a solid one-third of that land to the Chattahoochee Valley Land Trust. He’s also an avid outdoorsman and loves to hunt and fish.

Foxworthy’s a man of faith, but not necessarily organized faith. He’s led a Tuesday morning prayer group for homeless men in downtown Atlanta. For more than a decade, the comedian and his family have worked with a humanitarian aid organization called Compassion International. While he’s provided financial support, he also thinks it’s important to get involved with the people and places where the money goes and he’s traveled to Rwanda to help in and around Compassion International’s Compassion Child Development Center. “I used to think it was just writing a check,” he admitted. “It’s to a point now that we don’t even think about the check. What you’re doing is setting yourself up for a relationship.” He’s also involved with Cure Childhood Cancer, an organization based near his home in Atlanta.

But at the end of the day, Jeff Foxworthy is still first and foremost a comedian and always will be. He’s also a heck of a good guy. Are you a fan of Jeff Foxworthy? I certainly am.
