You know how it is with celebrities. They're all too busy shopping for helicopters, hawking shitty products on the shopping channel and flashing their undercrackers at the paparazzi as they emerge from fancy-ass limos. Do they have time to be assed with the problems of the common man? Of course they don't.

Well, generally. Natch, there are always goodly philanthropists using their huge wads of cashtacular to help the less fortunate, but they're few and far between. We're talking Bono, Elton John and all those sorts of dudes. And today, we add Mario Gotze to the list.

If you don't know your soccer, Gotze plays for Bayern Munich and the German national team. He's also pretty freaking awesome to fans, even when they're kinda being assholes to him.

One Mario Thissen was getting his FIFA on when his digital Gotzen missed a penalty kick in the final minute of the game. In Bizarro World, of course, this makes it the real-life footballer's fault, and so Thissen bitched at the World Cup winner on Facebook. After losing the FIFA match, he smashed his controller in frustration, and Gotzen --the real one, not the digital one, try to keep up-- apparently owed him 49.50 for a new dual shock.

Not only did the German ace reply, it wasn't with the swift middle finger this guy deserved. Instead, and ridiculously, repayment was arranged via Facebook PM. Much like that business with the guy paying for a Fallout 4 preorder with bottlecaps, it seems cheeky bastardry is the way forward.
