Donte Whitner no longer wants to be Hitner.
Earlier this season, San Francisco 49ers safety Donte Whitner was fined for what was deemed an illegal hit on Rams wide receiver Chris Givens. Most players just complain, pay it, and move on, but not him. He said he was going to change his name legally to Donte ‘Hitner’ and even said he got his mother’s blessing to do so.
Well—so much for that.
According to court records, Donte Whitner withdrew his application to change his name to Donte Hitner.— Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) November 19, 2013
He must have realized what a stupid idea it was.
