These Heroes Didn’t Want Credit Because They Were Just Doing What’s Right

Charles Ramsey Doesn’t Want Fame


Charles Ramsey became a viral video sensation after the Cleveland man put down his hamburger to help free three kidnapped women and a little girl after more than a decade in captivity. Hodge’s, a local restaurant where Ramsey worked as a dishwasher, named an eight-ounce, $12 burger for the man saved the women. After the burger became a smash hit, an IP lawyer for Ramsey said he “wants everyone to know that he does not endorse the consortium of Northeast Ohio restaurants who are offering ‘Ramsey Burgers’ or who are promoting that Ramsey can receive free burgers from them for life.” Ramsey has repeatedly said he was just doing the right thing and doesn’t want a bunch of “trash” to be created in his name.
