If you’re an NFL fan who keeps tabs on the Miami Dolphins, you’ve probably come across the Twitter account known as “TuAnon,” which has featured a steady stream of posts endorsing the abilities of starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa since it first popped up in 2021.

The account in question is absolutely dripping in irony, as it’s steeped in the conspiratorial undertones of the far-right movement that inspired its name and features hyperbolic levels of support for the QB who was selected by the fifth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

As is the case with many fan accounts, the people behind the profile leaned into the “Anon” aspect of the TuAnon moniker by attempting to keep their identities under wraps for the sake of the bit.

However, earlier this week, they drew the curtain back following the death of co-founder Eric Carmona, a 30-year-old Navy veteran who left behind a wife and four children after passing away in a motorcycle crash in California on June 1st.

The people who continue to run TuAnon set up a GoFundMe in the hopes of raising $75,000 to support his family, and they quickly found themselves nearing that goal thanks in no small part to Tua himself, who donated $10,000 for the cause.

Tyreek Hill also got in on the action with a $7,000 donation, and other members of the organization and the media also followed suit by contributing to the effort.

Tagovailoa talked about what motivated him to donate while speaking with the press at practice on Wednesday, saying he appreciated how Carmona covered the team and that his wife and children were in his prayers.

It’s obviously a tragic situation, but you have to give major props to Tua, Tyreek, and everyone else for stepping up to do what they can to help the cause.
