The Washington Commanders are an NFL franchise that continually makes headlines and goes trending for particularly bad reasons. Pro Bowl defensive tackle Jonathan Allen is keeping that trend going on Wednesday after answering a question on Twitter and providing an eye-popping answer.

Allen offered up the chance to “ask me anything” to his followers early on Wednesday morning when Twitter user Nick Chappell asked “You can have dinner with three people, dead or alive. Who are you inviting?”

To which Allen responded, “My grandad, hitler and micheal Jackson.”

Setting aside the alleged pedophile in his list, when asked why Adolph Hitler would be one of his top picks as a dinner guest, Allen explained his reasoning.

He’s a military genius and I love military tactics but honestly I would want to pick his brain as to why he did what he did,” wrote Allen. “I’m also assuming that the people I’ve chosen have to answer all my questions honestly.”

As you can probably imagine, social media discovered the comments and is currently having a field day turning Allen into today’s main character.

Along with concern about Allen’s poor grandfather being forced to return from the dead to have dinner with Hitler, people are pointing out the fallacy in Allen’s appreciation of the German dictator’s military prowess while also wondering why someone would write this on a public forum with their name attached and everything.



As always, when in doubt, you don’t have to mention your appreciation for anything about Hitler in a public forum. Just some good advice to take with you.
