This Guy Apologized to the Stingray He Threatened a Year Ago, and It’s Heartwarming
It doesn’t always feel like love wins, or that the light side of The Force is prevailing, but today one Twitter user named Gav restored our faith in humanity. He took the time to apologize to the stingray (AKA water pancake) he threatened over a year ago, as a promise of vengeance for Steve Irwin.
Over a year ago, I threatened you out of anger over the death of a lost one. A death that you were not responsible for.
Today, I’ve returned to make things right. To end the cycle of violence. It’s what Steve would have wanted. I’m sorry and I love you Water Pancake. pic.twitter.com/wrcyoFBB00

This man is the definition of emotionally woke, and Twitter agrees that we should all strive to be more like him…
this makes me laugh but also cry at the same time

Ocean pancakes are some of the gentlest creatures in the ocean, I know the one that got Steve didn’t mean to hurt him. They’re just peaceful lil raviolis living their lives flapping around like the birdies of the sea. This is a wholesome post. pic.twitter.com/5ELh3dcPqA

Were you touched by Gav’s show of compassion and forgiveness towards the water pancake? Also, honestly what do you think the chances are for us changing the name of stingrays to water pancakes by the end of 2018? Share all your thoughts with us @Smosh!
