Robert Griffin III gets wedding gifts from fans.

He's just one year into the league, but Robert Griffin III fanbase is major. So, when they found out he was getting married, they went out to purchase many of the items he and his fiance have listed on their wedding registry.

The link to Griffin's Bed Bath & Beyond registry was posted last week by The Washington Post. According to the registry, he and fiancee Rebecca Liddicoat are scheduled to be married on July 6.

The NFL star expressed his appreciation to his fans' surprise purchases in a tweet Sunday (May 19). "Thank you to the Fans who are helping buy ALL the items from our wedding registry at Bed Bath & Beyond," Griffin wrote (@RGIII).

Later, Griffin tweeted again, responding to backlash he received by people who objected to the prospect of fans buying gifts for an NFL quarterback.

"I didn't ask the fans to buy me anything," he wrote. "They found it on their own and decided to get what they could. SMH at all these Debbie downers."
