Former Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson makes no secret that he "loves" everyone, so when he sees someone in need, he does what he can to help out.

On Friday, Johnson asked his Twitter followers how their days were going when he encountered someone having a rough time. When he became aware that one of his followers was on the verge of being evicted, Ochocino stepped up to save the day:

Not only that, but he once sent a Twitter user $500 as a birthday present.

Ochocinco is a man of the people.
