Dolphins’ Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill donate $17,000 to family of fan who died in motorcycle crash

A diehard Miami Dolphins fan died last week in a motorcycle crash.

Eric Carmona, who helped coin the phrase “TuAnon” in defense of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, was 30 years old when he died in California.

Carmona’s friends created a GoFundMe page in order to support his family, and members of his favorite team caught wind of the online fundraiser.

Tagovailoa donated $10,000 to the page, while wide receiver Tyreek Hill added another $7,000.

Linebacker Andrew van Ginkel and CEO Tom Garfinkel each chipped in an extra $1,000.

“Thank you to [Hill] for donating $7000 to Eric. With this, we are now approaching our goal,” a TuAnon Twitter account tweeted on Monday.

“We family fins know that,” Hill replied.

At the time of publishing, the GoFundMe raised over $66,000 – its goal is $75,000. Tagovailoa’s donation is the largest so far.

“Eric Carmona, also known as FinsVicious, was a proud Navy veteran, and a die hard Miami Dolphins and Tua fan,” the GoFundMe reads.

Carmona’s identity remained unknown until his death – he would often post videos of himself in a mask and using a voice modulator and became a fixture on Dolphins social media.
