Chad Ochocinco

Dropped $8,000

on 200-Person Twitter Feast

3/13/2012 3:53 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With his future on the Patriots in question, Chad Ochocinco is trying to do good by anyone he can -- in this case NYC -- dropping nearly $8,000 on a massive fried chicken dinner last night ... for 200 local fans.

In case you don't follow him on Twitter -- the football stud sent an open invite to anyone in the New York area ... offering a free dinner to the first 200 people to show up at the famous Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem.

Needless to say, hordes of people came -- just check our video for proof -- and sources tell us, Ocho treated the hungry mob to a full array of Southern-style deliciousness ... including BBQ ribs, fried chicken, mac & cheese, and red velvet cupcakes.

Sources at the restaurant tell TMZ, Ocho spent $7,914 on grub altogether -- but they wouldn't specify how much he tipped.

Now if only Ocho could make more than 15 catches a season ...

What is he trying to prove by doing this? He should have donated the money to a homeless shelter. It would have gone towards food, blankets, whatever else they use in a homeless shelter for at least month or maybe more and he could write it off on his taxes.

Such high hopes for him when he was a Bengal. He isn't as interested in being one of the best receivers in football as he is in being enveloped in "Celebrity-dome". Choose one Chad. Did he even have more then one play in the super bowl?

This is nothing new. He has done this for years for his Cincinnati fans and fans on the road. I think it is a nice gesture.

this is to make up for the fact that he can't play football..he sucked with the bengals. tom brady and him have no chemistry, he was the reason they lost the superbowl. he should get traded to the jaguars to show his true colors. and his wife is overweight and ghetto.

This just shows that no matter what you do people will never be satisfied. Let the man do what he wants to do with his money. It is his life. We are not all alike, so why follow the crowd.
